WASHINGTON, Feb 22 (Reuters) - The White House said on Monday it was hopeful that President Joe Biden could travel to Texas as soon as this week to show his support after a deadly winter storm that caused widespread blackouts.
“The President is eager to go to Texas...He wants to go and show his support. He is also fully aware of the footprint of a president of the United States and everything that comes with that, traveling to a disaster area,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters. “We are hopeful that the trip can happen as early as this week.” (Reporting by Jeff Mason and Alexandra Alper; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
