President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden will arrive in Houston on Friday to assess the damages that were caused by the winter storm.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced the trip during a White House press briefing on Tuesday.
“The President will meet with local leaders to discuss the winter storm, relief efforts, progress toward recovery and the incredible resilience shown by the people of Houston and Texas,” Psaki said.

Biden approved a major disaster declaration for the entire state of Texas on Monday, but the Federal Emergency Management Agency only approved individual assistance for 108 of Texas’ 254 counties.
Biden’s presence could bring some much-needed hope and morale to the city of Houston and state of Texas, as a whole.
No matter what, we will all still remain #HoustonStrong.
