Trump was more concerned about his FEMA Director getting famous on television than he was about levees breaching and people being in danger south of Houston.
Dams are overflowing, levees are breaching, and Jeff Lindner, meteorologist with the Harris County Flood Control District, told the BBC, “This is something we’ve never faced before, so we’re trying our best to wrap around what exactly this water is going to do.”
The President Of The United States is also in Texas, but Donald Trump was more concerned with his FEMA Director getting famous on television:

Trump once again used Hurricane Harvey as an excuse to sell more of his tacky $40 baseball caps.

Trump is trying to use the storm for his own political and financial benefit, but all he has proven is total unfitness for the presidency.
