White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was set to give an on-camera briefing to reporters on Thursday.

"I don't know the legal part of exactly that, but he said his personal money so I would assume" that comes from him directly, Sanders said of the president's pledged donation.

As it happens, NPR has a list of where people wishing to donate funds to the Harvey recovery might look - as well as a warning about scams and schemes to avoid. He has in the past also exaggerated the amount of money he has given through his now-shuttered charitable foundation.

He has still managed to generate headlines off the course, however, after being arrested for a DUI near his home inFlorida in May. Tiger Woods has made progress towards a return to competitive golf after he was cleared to resume short-game practice.

President Donald Trump in a speech Wednesday in Missouri argued that the United States needs to slash taxes to make the nation more competitive internationally. Since then, Trump has donated funds to the National Park Service and the Department of Education. Trump, who will visit Texas Saturday for the second time since the deadly storm hit, has yet to pick a charity and is open to suggestions, Sanders said.

White House counselor Kelly Anne Conway echoed those comments on "Fox and Friends" Thursday morning, saying Trump plans to "get closer to the affected areas" when officials say it's "appropriate to do so". He helped pick up debris, visited a heavily damaged church in Rockport and stopped at a food distribution center in Victoria.

"THANK YOU to all of the incredible HEROES in Texas".
