Less than two weeks after Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas, another storm is making its way up to the United States. #Hurricane Irma is projected to possibly reach Florida this weekend, and #Donald Trump made sure to comment during his routine morning tweets [VIDEO].

Trump on Irma

When the news broke that yet another hurricane could rock part of the United States, it sent many in Florida and in the South into panic mode. After seeing the destruction left by Hurricane Harvey just last month in Texas, Floridians are not taking anything for granted. In recent days, millions across the state have rushed to stores to grab as many supplies as possible, as water and others items have been reported out of stock, with lines backing up for gas at the local pumps.

Reports of the storm started last week, as experts are predicting Hurricane Irma to reach a Category 5 with winds making their way to as strong as 130 mph. After close to a week of the storm being in the news, Donald Trump finally decided to make mention of it on #social media, sending out a pair of tweets on September 6.

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday morning, Donald Trump tweeted with almost excitement about the upcoming hurricane and how his administration is planning to face it. "Watching Hurricane closely. My team, which has done, and is doing, such a good job in Texas, is already in Florida," Trump tweeted out, before adding, "No rest for the weary!"

Not stopping there, Donald Trump sent out yet another tweet, this time warning that the storm could be record breaking.

"Hurricane looks like largest ever recorded in the Atlantic!" the president posted.

Twitter reacts

Not long after Donald Trump sent out his tweets, he was quickly mocked on social media [VIDEO] for finally taking time to mention the hurricane, as well as his odd excitement. "Don't act like you've earned being weary watching TV weather from your mansions and gold plated towers," Erik Stanger tweeted, while adding, "Only the weak get weary from taking photos."

"We have also been watching Hurricane Trump closely and the damage its done in the last 9 months. A new category should be invented for it," one tweet read. "No kidding! Where have you been for the past 3 days? Delayed reaction?" another Twitter user, before noting, "Just think how big of a crowd size you will have in Florida after the largest Hurricane ever hits!"

"Trump Looks like the Largest Disaster in American History," yet another tweet noted.
