"One thing I know about this state, it rebuilds fast", Trump told a group that included Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, congressmen and federal agency officials but no residents.

Wearing a red "USA" cap, Trump landed in Lake Charles, a Louisiana city of 80,000 people that's home to petroleum refineries and chemical plants near the Gulf of Mexico.

President Trump visited both states last week to survey the storm damage and assist in emergency efforts.

Trump was in Louisiana to view the damage caused by Hurricane Laura.

In Lake Charles, Mr. Trump assured elected officials and residents "we have to take care" of Louisiana and Texas. This is the first hurricane I've experienced.

President Donald Trump has suggested that his autograph could sell for as much as $US10,000 during a visit to hurricane-hit Louisiana.

Trump later flew by helicopter to the nearby city of Orange, Texas, meeting with state officials to discuss their response to Laura. He was greeted by several hundred supporters and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.

Trump has sometimes struggled with his role as consoler in chief, failing to project empathy when visiting places hard hit by tragedy and disaster. After a tornado ripped through Alabama a year ago, killing almost two dozen people, Trump spent time with families who'd lost loved ones, listening to their stories and hugging them.

Mr. Trump said Saturday while in Texas that FEMA would deliver 400,000 liters of water and 200,000 meals. That includes in Puerto Rico, where Trump was photographed tossing rolls of paper towel into the crowd, which some saw as inappropriately playful, given the circumstances.

This isn't the first time Trump's come under fire for bragging about the value of his autograph.

Laura, which packed 150-mph (240-kph) winds and a storm surge as high as 15 feet (4.5 metres), toppled trees and damaged buildings as far north as central Arkansas.

The Category 4 hurricane killed at least 15 people, including some killed by carbon monoxide poisoning from the unsafe operation of generators.

More than 580,000 coastal residents were evacuated due to the storm. Following a tornado ripped through Alabama this past year, killing almost two dozen individuals, Trump spent some time with families who had lost family members, listening to their tales and hugging them.
