  • Here's President Trump's Message to the Country Ahead of Hurricane Irma

Hours ahead of Hurricane Irma's expected landfall in Florida, U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday advised citizens to "just get out of its way", urging those still in evacuation zones to hurry and leave.

The meeting took place at the presidential retreat in Camp David where Trump is staying for the weekend.

"All of America continues, I must say, to pray for the families affected by Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, which looks like it's going to be a really bad one, but we're prepared".

A spate of social media posts expressing hope that Hurricane Irma trashes President Trump's Palm Beach, Fla., resort is producing a backlash of disgust and criticism.
