WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — President Joe Biden will travel to Puerto Rico and Florida this week in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.
The White House said Saturday that Biden and first lady Jill Biden were scheduled to travel to the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico on Monday. From there, they will travel to Florida sometime Wednesday.
The White House didn't specify details of their trip.
Biden has approved a major disaster declaration for several Florida counties that were hardest hit by Ian, clearing the way for federal funding to help residents and business owners recover.
