Hurricane Irma is set to make landfall on Saturday across most of Florida, and the storm is predicted to be devastating. Ahead of the storm, President Donald Trump recorded a message for Americans, reassuring that the federal agencies are prepared to deal with the destruction caused by the storm as well as the rebuilding effort. 

"This is a storm of absolutely historic destruction potential. I ask everyone in the storm's path to be vigilant and to heed all recommendations from government officials and law enforcement. Nothing is more important than the safety and security of our people," said Trump.
