Cooper confirmed he believed President Donald Trump would be visiting the state on Wednesday, and the president's schedule indicates that is the case.
The location he will be visiting is being kept confidential as of Tuesday afternoon.
Cooper said he was able to see New Bern yesterday, and described the storm damage there as “devastating.”
“As distressing as this damage is, it’s equally heartening to watch neighbors helping neighbors and see volunteers and people of faith stepping up and doing their part,” he said. “This is the NC I know in my heart, and it is the reason we will make this state whole again.”
