The Washington, D.C., businessman says he would veto a $100 billion package of spending bills if it includes $100 million to help the victims of Hurricane Matthew.
The White House issued a statement Monday saying the president wants to help those in need and would veto any spending bill that did not include the $100.
The statement comes after the White House released a video from a private dinner hosted by President Trump that shows the president thanking members of the military, and calling for a $10.4 billion emergency aid package for Florida.
Trump said the bill should include $100 for every American to be able to help, which would be about $2 billion per day.
In the video, the president says: “I would be willing to sign this bill if the president could get $100 in aid for every person in Florida.
And I think that’s going to be a very good deal.
We’re going to do it, folks.
And we’re going.
And it’s a very, very good idea.
It’s very, much needed.”
The president’s office has not yet provided a copy of the bill, which is expected to be signed into law later this month.
Trump’s proposal would provide $50 million in emergency aid to the U.S. Virgin Islands and Florida, $15 million to Puerto Rico, and $5 million to New York.
It would also provide $10 million for a state-of-the-art hurricane-response training facility in Florida that would be built in Florida and would serve as a center for hurricane recovery operations.
The $100 program would also include $50,000 to help victims of the Florida wildfires, which killed at least 2,100 people.
It also would provide grants to the Florida Department of Homeland Security and the U,S.
Army Corps of Engineers to rebuild and provide services to the islands.
The federal government would also receive $15,000 per household to help pay for the flood relief efforts.
