The president says in a statement Tuesday morning after being briefed that the disaster fund could cover the costs of Midwest flooding, he’ll work with Congress to get financial support for the affected areas.

Adds he’ll be heading down to Iowa Thursday to meet with the crews on the ground there.

“I’ve unfortunately been to too many disasters as President. But one thing I’ve always learned is that the American citizen can overcome these disasters.”
