A Puerto Rican Just busted the lies of San Juan Mayor and Unveiled the Humanitarian Side of Trump
”In case you were wondering if President Trump is doing “enough” for Puerto Rico hurricane relief…this is from a Puerto Rican friend…
“Don’t believe anything negative that the mainstream media tells you about President’s Trump’s response to Puerto Rico! My parents live on the island. They’ve been without power since Sept. 20th. The response from the US government has been phenomenal. First, President Trump declared Puerto Rico a “State of Emergency” BEFORE Maria hit. He was scheduled to visit the island last week (due to Hurricane Irma), but his plans changed because Hurricane Maria was barreling down the islands last Tuesday & Wednesday. He has re-scheduled his visit for Tues., Oct. 3rd.
My father, who lives across the street from Isla Grande Airport, says that US Marines choppers have been coming in & out for the past 5 days or so, dropping off relief. Air traffic was non-functional right after the hurricane, so many relief flights could not land. It is now open to mostly relief-related flights. The US Coast Guard is patrolling the San Juan Harbor. They are the ones who let in the freighters.
Only certain freighters can dock in at certain times (due to lack of docks and piers), so they are taking turns. Luxury yachts and the like are NOT being let in — only relief cargo! There are 16 US Military ships deployed to PR right now.
FEMA has had a presence since DAY ONE and there are about 6 million bottles of water on the island right now. Geraldo Rivera was complaining today that telephone poles were still down – but that’s not a priority right now, Gerry! Food, Water & Gasoline is Priority Number One! Companies like Claro are setting up FiberOptics & Wi-Fi service. Puerto Rican electric utility workers are getting help from workers coming in from the mainland, but the US cannot do everything in a span of a month. It will take months and possibly years.
Perhaps those Puerto Ricans who seek Independence from the US should lend a helping hand to rebuild their island, since they don’t care for or appreciate the US. They’re the ones who should be putting up the telephone poles. But, they’re probably too busy filling out their FEMA Temporary Housing application. Donald Trump is a great humanitarian — and the truth shall prevail!!!”
