“President Donald Trump sought to project tough competence in the face of the biggest natural disaster of his presidency, describing the hurricane battering Texas over the weekend as an epic storm on social media and announcing he will visit the state on Tuesday.

The White House released photos Sunday showing Trump, with a trademark tough-guy look and a white USA hat, at a conference table at the Camp David retreat leading a teleconference of his senior staff on how to handle Hurricane Harvey, which the National Weather Service has described as “unprecedented.”

The agency said rainfall deluging the southeast part of the state could reach 50 inches in some places, and television footage and photos showed much of the Galveston-Corpus Christi-Houston region of Texas beset by extensive flooding well after the storm made landfall Friday night.

Trump’s friends say he has a short attention span — he also tweeted about an upcoming trip to Missouri and his proposed border wall Sunday — but he sought to present himself as focused on Texas, posting online about the hurricane repeatedly. “Even experts have said they’ve never seen one like this!” he tweeted at one point. “Major rescue operations underway!” he wrote later Sunday.”
