Top Military General Just said Trump is not allowing Military to do their Job in Puerto Rico
A Three star Military General just decimated the arguments of President Donald Trump, the FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security. The General alleged that the Trump administration is failed to respond to the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Puerto Rico after images of the “Meals” being handed out to Puerto Ricans leaked on internet.

He talk to the CBS News and shared his concerns ““They say everything is working, but the people are not satisfied. The mission of our military is to protect the American people. And this mission, this FEMA and DHS mission, is giving our military a bad name. Because we know how to do this. But we’re not allowed to do it. That’s what the hell is going on.
What is going on on the ground is not what the American military can do. You’ve seen what we can do. And this is not representative of what we can do. This is a cryin damn shame that we haven’t let the big dogs of the United States Army, Navy, and Marine Corps do what we do – which is expeditionary logistics at any time in the world.”

Meanwhile Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello said about 85 percent of the island was still without power Saturday. Meanwhile, 42 percent of cell phone customers in Puerto Rico don’t have service and 36 percent of residents still don’t have access to safe drinking water.
No electricity is also complicating another crucial service: running water. Generators are being used to pump and treat water, but they rely on fuel, another rare commodity (see below.) Yet, in some places, like the municipality of Comerío, no amount of fuel would solve the problem. Its mayor told Univisión on Oct. 10 that the water-waste treatment plant has collapsed, polluting the lake that supplies drinking water to the community. The water utility says restoring service will take months. Meanwhile, “there is no potable water in a single home in Comerío,” he said. He’s requesting water trucks to make home-by-home deliveries.
