Perry was due to meet Kazakh Energy Minister Kanat Bozumbayev on Monday and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Tuesday.
Trump, speaking in Corpus Christi near where Harvey first came ashore last week, said he wanted the relief effort to stand as an example of how to respond to a storm.
The storm has dumped historic amounts of rain on areas in and around Houston, which continues to flood.
One White House official told CNN's Jim Acosta that Trump should have focused his meetings in Texas on Hurricane victims. "Nobody's ever seen anything like this", Trump said of Tropical Storm Harvey as he met with state and federal officials for a briefing at a Corpus Christi fire station.
Here's Why Yawns Are So Contagious
Using transcranial magnetic stimulation ( TMS ), the researchers measured the participants' brain activity during the experiments. But, no matter how hard we try to stifle a yawn , it might change how we yawn but it won't alter our propensity to yawn.
"I know the president said he was going to give-I don't know the legal part of exactly that, but he said his personal money", Sanders answered.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, has so far praised the federal response to Hurricane Harvey, which has been blamed for at least three confirmed deaths. So on Tuesday, he and Melania threw on their work boots and stilettos, respectively, and jetted down to Texas on Air Force One to see the situation for themselves.
"I've been around dozens and dozens of major disasters and hurricanes, hundreds of disasters". I think that's why he's the president - because of overwhelmingly a large number of Americans came out and voted for him because he does reflect their values. "We're going to posture ourselves for the long-term care of the medical needy, of the elderly, of the weak and then we'll put ourselves in the position to provide the resources to rebuild and recover", he said.
Trump's predecessors have also benefited from the political opportunities that can arise after natural disasters.
Trump advisers are well-aware that the hurricane poses a significant test for the White House, which has largely been mired in crises of its own making during Trump's first seven months in office, including the president's widely criticized response to white supremacist protests in Charlottesville, Virginia. "Recovery will be a long and hard road, and the federal government stands ready, willing and able to support that effort".
