That's your assertion, or required by US law?

I have found nothing to indicate that the POTUS has to approve sending assistance under those circumstances, or that he denied aid directly or otherwise.

If it is 'law,' or he did deny aid, please link it.

Snopes covers some of these points, and labels them 'undecided.' Which is hardly surprising.
