Puerto Rico Suffers as Trump Unleashes a Disgusting Tweet Storm Against Them

Puerto Rico Suffers as Trump Unleashes a Disgusting Tweet Storm Against Them

President Trump issued a warning Thursday to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico, saying the USA territory's infrastructure was a mess before the storm and warning that federal officials can not stay on the island "forever".

There is exactly zero reason to treat Puerto Rico any differently from Texas or Florida.

For New York State Senator Terrence Murphy, building the right partnerships to provide relief to those reeling from the ongoing recovery efforts in Puerto Rico have been a main focus.

The president has repeatedly called for more help "on a local level" from Puerto Rico and has had an intermittent feud with the San Juan mayor, who also has faced criticism for engaging in political combat when other officials on the island are not. It wasn't immediately clear what prompted the president's reference to her on Twitter.

If Trump abandons Puerto Rico, it will be an impeachable offense. "It is imperative that we continue to do all we can to make sure that vital food, supplies and services get to all of Puerto Rico, including those communities away from the coast that are in dire need". Instead of going out of his way to turn this chaotic situation into something one would expect from the American government, Trump has made a decision to attack the whole island via Twitter. "These are great people".

The island is struggling on many fronts since Hurricane Maria struck on September 20, killing at least 45 people. "And we will be there every day until that happens".

As part of the TIDAL X: Puerto Rico initiative, the global music and entertainment company chartered two 747 cargo planes, the first on Saturday and the second yesterday, carrying a total of 400,000 pounds of supplies.

"Sixteen people versus in the thousands", Trump said.
