Footage has emerged of the US President's extraordinary boast after he surveyed the damage wreaked by Hurricane Laura.

Recently released video footage shows US President Donald Trump telling people dealing with the fallout from Hurricane Laura that they should sell his autograph for $10,000 (Dh36,730).

On Saturday, Trump toured areas damaged by Hurricane Laura in Lake Charles, Louisiana, receiving briefings on emergency operations and relief efforts.

Trumo signed autographs for some of those in attendance, saying they could sell them on eBay for $10,000.

Footage of his vists shows Trump sitting down and beckoning a group pf people towards him, telling them: "Come here fellas, get over here. I want a little power."

After giving his autograph to an official, he said: "Sell this on eBay tonight, you'll get $10,000", reportedly telling another recipient that he is deliberately not putting his name on as it would be worth more without it.

EBay, the American multinational e-commerce corporation based in San Jose, California, already has several pieces of Trump-autographed memorabilia, with some bids for them amounting to thousands of dollars.
