President Donald Trump had a parting message on Friday for the more than 4.6 million Americans who are in the direct path of Hurricane Harvey, a massive storm set to ram through Texas’ Gulf Coast this weekend: “Good luck.”

Asked what his message was for those who could be affected by the hurricane, Trump gave a big thumbs up to reporters and wished the best of luck.

“Good luck to everybody,” he said as he was boarding Marine One outside of the White House. “They’re gonna be safe. Good luck to everybody. Good luck.”

He later added in a tweet: “Just arrived at Camp David where I am closely watching the path and doings of Hurricane Harvey, as it strengthens to a Category 3. BE SAFE!”
