President Trump said Wednesday he will visit Florida on Thursday to tour areas devastated by Hurricane Irma and meet with first responders.

"I will be traveling to Florida tomorrow to meet with our great Coast Guard, FEMA and many of the brave first responders & others," Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.

Trump also encouraged Congress to act quickly on tax reform, which he said would help people rebuild.

"With Irma and Harvey devastation, Tax Cuts and Tax Reform is needed more than ever before. Go Congress, go!"

Trump said Congress will soon be able to act on his administration's tax reform proposals.

"The approval process for the biggest Tax Cut & Tax Reform package in the history of our country will soon begin. Move fast Congress!" Trump added.

The White House announced during a press conference Tuesday afternoon that the president would travel south Thursday. A spokesperson for Melania Trump confirmed Tuesday the first lady will accompany Trump on his Thursday trip.

U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp on Monday said Trump will travel to the islands "within the next six or seven days" to see the devastation Hurricane Irma left behind.

The White House has not announced the trip to the Caribbean island or Puerto Rico, but Mapp said he spoke with Trump earlier in the day and that Trump told him he will visit the U.S. territory.
