President Donald Trump is urging those in the path of Hurricane Florence to act now to "get out of its way."

Trump is telling residents, "Don't play games with it. It's a big one."

The president made his comments in a videotaped message from the Rose Garden that he tweeted out on Wednesday morning.

Trump says the federal government and first responders stand ready to assist, but even so, "bad things can happen when you're talking about a storm this size."

Trump is telling people in the Carolinas and Virginia: "it's heading your way. ... Be ready and God be with you."
