The US President is going to give a million dollars of his personal income to help people in Texas and Louisiana hit by Storm Harvey.

The amount matches pledges already made by Hollywood stars Sandra Bullock and Leonardo DiCaprio.

The storm has killed at least 39 people since hitting Texas on Friday.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Donald Trump wants their ideas about which organisations have been most effective at providing aid.
