Trump Demands More "Appreciation" for Relief Effort in Puerto Rico

13 Octubre 2017, 04:11 | Crisanna Felipe



Officials from the Department of Homeland Security are set to come to Capitol Hill Wednesday afternoon to brief House members on recovery efforts in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is slightly warmer, and Flood said the soil could be saltier from being on the coast or on a mountain with higher elevation. The reality is, they're no different from any of us. "Congress to decide how much to spend..." This process by Habibi has greatly helped a number of helpless residents who would otherwise have absolutely nowhere else to turn to.

Attkisson is a journalist who works for conservative Sinclair Broadcasting. Puerto Rico was declared a disaster after Maria. The "Boricuas", as they are known, a reference to the indigenous people who once populated the island, were without exception warm and open as we crisscrossed the island photographing and reporting on the damage.

King, who is a water treatment technician at the municipal plant on Spring Lane, is a member of the Urban Search and Rescue Corps of Massachusetts Task Force 1.

Now, three weeks after the horrific hurricane, around nine indoor cultivation spaces and 19 out of 29 cannabis dispensaries are operational thanks to generators and tanks of water.

Every death must be confirmed by the Institute of Forensic Science, which means either the bodies have to be brought to San Juan to do an autopsy or a medical examiner must be dispatched to the local municipality to verify the death, Ortiz explained.

Administration officials sought to downplay Trump's comments Thursday morning.

The leadership-backed House aid bill ignores requests made last week by the Texas and Florida delegations last week for tens of billions of dollars in additional assistance.

Several sites ran very similar stories, including the popular conservative outlet, which used the headline: "BOMBSHELL: DEMS/TEAMSTERS ORDER PUERTO RICAN STAND-DOWN TO EMBARRASS TRUMP". This quick and effective help was massively required by the island as soon as the hurricane hit.

The creator of "Hamilton" is asking his fans to support relief efforts for his native Puerto Rico, which was nearly destroyed by Hurricane Maria last month.

Democrats, however, pounced on Trump's tweets. Supplies we have. Trucks we have.

A woman looks out a door at her church in Caonillas, Puerto Rico. Dianne Feinstein, D-California, tweeted. The real fiscal hole, though, is likely to be in Puerto Rico's own budget. "@realDonaldTrump seems more worried about blaming hurricane victims than helping them".

The pharmaceutical sector may slowly move to locations that offer the same tax advantages but a smaller risk of hurricanes.

The people of Puerto Rico are proving their resilience. The school, chapel, laundry area, guest room and other rooms were flooded.

In the aftermath of Maria, the entirety of Puerto Rico's power grid has been wiped out along with much of its agriculture with so far precious little restored.

The bill passed ‎353-69.
