Tramp comes face to face with Stricken Puerto Rico

Donald-TrumpSAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — President Donald Trump came face to face with hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico on Tuesday after denouncing critics of the federal relief effort as “politically motivated ingrates” who need to step up their own response to the crisis.

Puerto Ricans who have called Washington’s work on the island insufficient “have to give us more help,” he said before leaving Washington, without explaining how they have come up short in his eyes.

Air Force One brought the president, first lady Melania Trump and aides to Puerto Rico in late morning. They were expected to spend more than five hours on the ground, meeting first responders, local officials and some of the 3.4 million people whose lives have been upended by a hurricane that, in the president’s words, left the island U.S. territory “flattened.”

The plane descended over a landscape marked by mangled palm trees, metal debris strewn near homes and patches of stripped trees, yet with less devastation evident than farther from San Juan.

    This is posted as Tramp comes face to face with Puerto Rico. I hope this is a typo or all you referring to the first lady.
    I suppose people are going to blame the suffering on Trump. There has to be a way they can blame him for so called global warming. They have tried to blame him for everything else. Other than every politician being sent to prison, the best thing all the so called investigators could do is track down the bull shi ers that came up with this. One I suppose is still selling carbon credits and has moved to the state he said was falling in the ocean.

    The videos don’t lie. The clock doesn’t lie.

    He was planning on being on the ground for more than 5 hours, according to the press conference ahead of time. He left after about 4 hours.

    Videos show him tossing paper towels to the crowd, like he was tossing t-shirts at a NASCAR event. I wish just one person had had the guts to throw the towels back at him.

    Videos show him talking about all the money the government is spending, and how the problems in Puerto Rico aren’t like a “real disaster” like Katrina. Videos showing him asking at the press conference for good comments and thank yous.

    This has nothing to do with the Associated Press, but you can keep shooting the messenger if you want. It’s a problem with the newsmaker – POTUS.

    Please proofread! I see too much of this and it drives me crazy!

    I’ve heard that the dockworkers’ union is refusing to unload the ships unless they get a lot more money.

    What are the residents doing? Are they clearing roads? Are they collecting debris and putting it in a pile so it can be easily hauled off? Are they repairing their damaged property? Granted there are some jobs Washington can do better, but many jobs are best left to the residents of the towns and villages.

    PRAY FOR AMERICA.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    I CAN TAKE 100 WELL ARMED SOLDIERS THAT WANT TO KILL, AND TAKE ANY BASE IN 1 HOUR, OUR TROOPS NOT ARMED. BETTER ARM THEN NOW.

    TRUMP NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212 WAS PASSED IN 1952 AND THIS LAW SHOULD BE ENFORCED. IT BANS ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO DESTROY US, THAT INCLUDE ALL MUSLIMS.

    5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON, A MINIMUM OF 31 MORE CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES, AND A FEMA CAMP, (SOME STATES MORE), IN EVERY STATE. BUILT WITH TAX PAYER $. TO HOUSE MUSLIMS???

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE. IF THE CAMPS IN N. VA. ARE TO TAKE DC. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA, AND ALL HIS APPOINTEES, SOROS, HILLIARY, KERRY, FORMER HEAD OF CIA AND FBI, SEVERAL SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR OBAMA TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS. DID THEY GIVE THEM TO THE ONES BROUGHT IN?

    WHY ARE THE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VA. JUST ACROSS THE LINE FROM DC???????

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    WHY ARE ALL MUSLIM CAMPS CLOSE TO OUR MILITARY BASES? COULD IT BE FOR A TRY TO TAKE THEM?

    WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS. THERE ARE A LOT MORE WHYS? THINK AND YOU WILL KNOW.

    Headline “Tramp”????

  • Paul Kalmanek

    Tramps are beggers. I wouldn’t trust them. Opps, you mean Trump. I’m sorry, I trust him more then the media. LOL

  • ch

    Here is a first hand recording from a cop. They are so corrupt, what have they been doing with the billions they get every year for infrastructure. Not one more cent until Yulin accounts for it.

    So, mayor, you knew for a week? that that hurricane was coming. Why didn’t you prepare? Why don’t you provide security for incoming goods and services, so they aren’t hijacked. Why don’t you show gratitude towards those that help, instead of contempt? Why don’t you get down in the trenches and help? This country just had 2 hurricanes hit, just prior to yours. How much aide did you sent Texas and Florida? Shame on you!

  • Robert Winkler

    TRAMP?????????? Shall I quit this page???

  • Jose

    If you are being coy, you write dumb, stupid headlines which may amuse your friends (those with low IQ) but not the rest of us.

  • Jeanne Stotler

    For years, Puerto Rica, the Philiipines and others have had corrupt politicians that run down their territories and then think USA should bail them out. Well IRMA and MARIA took care of clearing the island, and we will help BUT still want debt repaid, now it’s up to voters to get the Island back on it’s feet by demanding to know where tax money went and making sure future taxes are used for benefit of the people. USA cannot be the world’s savior.

    • Marilynn Reeves

      You hit the nail on the head. All Puerto Ricans should be working their butts off — Sadly they are not.

      • ch

        No they are standing there with their hands out complaining. Start cleaning up like they did in Texas yourselves. Get your mayors to deliver what is already there in aid, or go down and remove Yulin from office and get it delivered yourselves. Help each other.

  • Fidel castro

    Must have been a democrat who titled this piece. Screw puerto rico! Never have liked em. Like most blacks, everything is everybodies fault but their own. So sick of this shit! Live in florida for 44 years and you will know the truth! So f#$*ing glad i moved to middle america farm land.

    Fix your fing headline!!!

  • gadgetcoder

    The main detractor – a Liberal Democrat “mayor” – who hadn’t even attended meetings held to deal with the crisis, was standing IN FRONT OF pallets full of food and other relief items as she berated Trump for “not doing enough” and “killing Puerto Ricans…” It reminded me of Baghdad Bob who schreeched about how Americans would never enter his city, while behind him American tanks could be seen cruising into town with NO resistance…

    • Pete

      Article written by the Associated Press (AP). The media people continue to try and pee on Trumps leg every time they get a chance. This headline is just another example we have come to expect from the progressive/socialists in the MSM.
      Puerto Rico has to do a lot of cleanup after these hurricanes, that includes some of their less than stellar politicians
