CEDAR RAPIDS, Ia. — President Donald Trump promised Iowa leaders Tuesday that they would have the “full support of the federal government” as they work to clear debris, restore power and recover from a massive windstorm that swept the state last week.
“Iowans have always been resilient and strong and tough and great people,” Trump said in a briefing in Cedar Rapids. “From the depths of this grave hardship, we will rebuild even stronger than before. We’re going to be in fantastic shape in a very short period of time.”
On Monday, the president approved part of Iowa’s disaster aid request for many counties, encompassing about $45 million in aid. However, Gov. Kim Reynolds’ total disaster aid application included a litany of nearly $4 billion in damages. The Monday approval did not include individual assistance aid, which would help homeowners and farmers with their private property damage.
