Trump to visit FL amid probe into care centre
PRESIDENT Donald Trump was set to visit storm-ravaged Florida yesterday as authorities investigate the deaths of eight residents of a nursing home that lost power when Hurricane Irma whipped through the region. The deaths brought the total number of storm-related fatalities in Florida to 20, and illustrate the urgency of restoring electricity to millions of people across the southern state. Trump and his wife, Melania, will head to the city of Fort Myers, where they will be briefed on recovery efforts along with Vice President Mike Pence, the White House said. Both cities are on Florida’s west coast, far from Trump’s swank Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, on the state’s east coast.
