President Donald Trump put himself back in hurricane mode as Hurricane Irma smashed through the Caribbean on a track that could take it to Florida.

Just days after making efforts to oversee preparations and response efforts for Hurricane Harvey, which wreaked destruction over southeast Texas, Trump tweeted about his storm team. 

'Watching Hurricane closely. My team, which has done, and is doing, such a good job in Texas, is already in Florida.'

He added: 'No rest for the weary!'

In another tweet, he wrote, 'Hurricane looks like largest ever recorded in the Atlantic!'

Trump also relied on Twitter to show the nation that he was on top of Harvey as it barreled toward Texas.

He tracked the storm from Camp David in August, met with his security team, and made a trip to Austin and Corpus Christie after it blasted Texas, leaving much of Houston underwater.

'After witnessing first hand the horror & devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey,my heart goes out even more so to the great people of Texas!' Trump wrote in a tweet last month following his initial visit, although he was criticized for not having actually met storm victims on his initial journey. 

As with Harvey, Trump remarked on the hurricane's historic dimensions

The president tweeted that his team was doing 'such a good job in Texas' and was 'already in Florida' in advance of the storm

As the nation braced for another hit, Trump faced the prospect of sustaining damage to his own holdings.

He owns a $28 million mansion on the French territory of St. Martin. Its price got slashed to $16.9 million when it didn't immediately sell. Trump owns it through a trust that he doesn't currently manage.

Mar-a-Lago in West Palm Beach also could sustain damage. 

Trump approved emergency declarations for Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands on Tuesday.
