President Trump said Sunday that the major hurricanes hitting the U.S. are improving the "brand" of the U.S. Coast Guard.

Trump told a reporter that the country has "great people" responding to the massive storms and that "a group that really deserves tremendous credit is the United States Coast Guard," according to a White House pool report.

"What they've done - I mean, they've gone right into that, and you never know. When you go in there, you don't know if you're going to come out. They are really - if you talk about branding, no brand has improved more than the United States Coast Guard," Trump said.

Trump also praised FEMA as "incredible" as Hurricane Irma made landfall on Florida on Sunday.

Trump's comments came after returning from a Cabinet meeting at Camp David, where he and other administration officials received a briefing on Hurricane Irma.

Irma is the second major hurricane to strike the U.S. in recent weeks after Hurricane Harvey devastated Texas late last month.
