Puerto Rico struggles to recover from Hurricane Maria, as Trump plans visit

by
September 26, 2017

puerto-rico-2Puerto Rico is in the throes of a full-blown “humanitarian crisis,” with washed-out roads, downed power lines and damaged infrastructure – a scene President Trump intends to view first hand next week.

Trump, who has been criticized for not focusing more on Puerto Rico in the days following the devastating Category 3 storm, said Tuesday the federal government is working hard to get food and water to the U.S. territory, saying the island was “hit as hard as you can hit.”

“Those people are very important to all of us,” he said. “We are working very, very hard on Puerto Rico.”

Though the federal government has sent aid to Puerto Rico, recovery efforts have been hampered by logistical hurdles on the island of more than 3.4 million U.S. citizens.

      The Salvation Army gives almost all donations, according to info I read. The red cross stinks as an institution; it’s administration works as well as the federal government. And is as well paid.

      You have to keep in mind we had Texas and Florida in a mess also, America has responded quickly to this and looting is a problem that the governing body in Puerto Rico can help with like the governors of Texas and Florida did. America has no help from anyone except from Israel who sent teams and supplies to all areas affected.

      It’s not like we are sitting on our asses over here in the states, good grief give us some credit. Three disasters one right after the other, all in need of water, food and help. I think America reacted damned fast and continues to act.

      Damn it Americans are there. What do you want? We just had Florida and Texas hit look at what I posted, we were there almost immediately in Puerto Rico. We are doing all we can. We have nobody helping us but Israel, none of our rich allies sending a penny, nothing, as usual and it is a crying shame.

      Our prayers are with all of them, everyone pitching in, raising money all over the place. Where is your reserve?

          Welcome Leslie. It is just so frustrating to me for all these disasters to have struck at once. in Texas it was beyond awful and I received a call from a nursing home where they must have taken my father, awaiting a call back and hoping for the best, he lives in Texas, couldn’t get hold of him during the storm and here in Florida still have total devastation and it just urks me that Puerto Rico and so many others are thinking we are some sort of bottomless pit of money that just takes care of the world. We aren’t and we have limits like every country on people and services not to mention a debt that Obama raised by trillions. Trump doing his best to bring us back to health in America.
