Donald Trump confirmed Friday on Twitter that he will return to flood-ravaged Texas on Saturday, saying on Twitter that he 'will be back tomorrow.'
'Texas is heeling [sic] fast thanks to all of the great men & women who have been working so hard. But still, so much to do,' the president tweeted.
Vice President Mike Pence had said Thursday during a press conference in Corpus Christi that Trump would return to see the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey.
White House press secretary wouldn't say on Thursday whether Trump would huddle with hurricane survivors.
The president received flak for failing to meet with victims when he went on Tuesday and later claiming he saw wrath of the storm 'first hand.'

Trump had also received criticism for his speech to supporters who had gathered outside a fire station, with the president saying, 'What a crowd, what a turnout,' before waving a Texas flag and not mentioning the loss of life and suffering of victims.
In his speech on Thursday, Pence commended state and federal officials who aided the relief effort before proclaiming his admiration of citizen volunteers and encouraged all Americans to find a way to help.
The vice president also revealed that more than 311,000 people affected by the storm have already registered for disaster aid and said that Trump's administration expects Congress to 'move quickly' in funding legislation.
In his speech earlier that day, Pence said: 'I called the president on Air Force Two this morning. I asked him what he wanted me to tell you. And he just said tell 'em we love Texas,' Pence told a small crowd as he viewed some of massive damage wrought by 130 mile-per-hour winds.
Pence offered reassurances and prayers – and repeatedly referenced Trump, who visited Texas on Tuesday but took flack for failing to meet with those whose lives were upended by the massive storm.
He hugged storm victims, and pledged that the region would come back 'bigger and better.'
