Biden could visit storm-ravaged Texas ‘as soon as this week,’ White House says

President Biden could travel to Texas to review the damage as “soon as this week,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Sunday.

She said the president has been getting constant updates from his Federal Emergency Management Agency chief and is “eager” to show his support for the Lone Star State.

“But he’s also very mindful of the fact that it’s not a light footprint for a president to travel to a disaster area. He does not want to take away resources or attention​,” Psaki said on ABC News’ “This Week.”

“​And we’re going to do that at an appropriate time in coordination with people on the ground​. C​ould be as soon as this week​,” she said.​
