(CNN)The White House on Saturday announced President Donald Trump will soon visit California, hours after Trump thanked the firefighters and first responders battling the historic wildfires raging in the western part of the United States.

Trump will visit McClellan Park, California, on Monday for a briefing with local and federal fire and emergency officials on the state's wildfires, the White House said Saturday.

Trump had last addressed the wildfires during an August 23 news conference, announcing the approval of a disaster declaration for California and that the federal government had deployed thousands of first responders and personnel to the area.

"The President continues to support those who are battling raging wildfires in a locally-executed, state-managed, and federally-supported emergency response," White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement Saturday.
