Trump warns post-hurricane Puerto Rico, says FEMA won't stay 'forever'

House to Add $36.5 Billion for Hurricane Relief, Puerto Rico Aid

Thoughts on leaving so much money on the table?

His reaction to the worsening humanitarian crisis was met with disbelief from concerned citizens and lawmakers like Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who asked Trump on Twitter, "Why do you continue to treat Puerto Ricans differently than other Americans when it comes to natural disasters?" Twenty one days ago the island became well aware and prepared for the uninvited visit from Maria.

But Ortiz, who has held office for 23 years and represented the Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook during Hurricane Sandy so is familiar with the logistics of disaster relief response, says New York needs a long-term solution.

As obviously shown, the Puerto Rican disaster brought lots of controversy to the table as many realized that there was not much rescue effort taking place. "I spend my time in the backyard looking at the stars and talking to neighbors, who I barely talked to anymore". So if the government did "wipe out" the debt, Main Street would bear the most pain, which is why there would be little congressional support behind it. As of Friday, only 9 percent of the island had power, with a little over half of residents able to access cellular communication.

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

"He is showing off that he is just racist", Padilla continued.

Texas: "The president was heartbroken about what he saw", Gov. Greg Abbott said after flying over the damage in Texas aboard Air Force One with Trump. Earlier in the week, we transported 110 dogs and 13 cats to Virginia. As one radio station pointed out, that's enough cable to stretch from Ponce to Antarctica.

After Hurricane Maria swept through Puerto Rico on Wednesday, September 20, Puerto Rico was in dire straits.

Padilla added that Trump appears to not grasp the history of Puerto Rico, reminding that the island is not a U.S. territory out of choice, but that such a status was imposed on the island by Congress before the First World War.

At the same time, the Kurds pulled back troops from its lines south of the city to avoid conflict.

"FLORIDA- Just like TX, WE are w/you today, we are w/you tomorrow, & we will be w/you EVERY SINGLE DAY AFTER, to RESTORE, RECOVER, & REBUILD!" Forecasts call for it to disregard straight Puerto Rico on Wednesday.

FEMA Administrator Brock Long said 16,000 federal and military assets are on the ground in Puerto Rico and about 350,000 Puerto Ricans have registered so far in the FEMA system to receive financial assistance. On mainland Puerto Rico, we are reaching countless others.

"We are 1.8 million meals short", one senior FEMA official told the Guardian yesterday. His generosity might be moot since Mike Ortiz, the funeral home's owner, has yet to give the family a bill for his services. Puerto Rico's treasury secretary, Raul Maldonado, said last week that the territory faces a government shutdown on Oct. 31 that would halt its hurricane recovery efforts if Congress doesn't intervene.

U.S. President Donald Trump waves to journalists as he leaves the White House October 11, 2017 in Washington, DC. Puerto Rico's governor, Ricardo Rosselló, has since begged for another suspension, but mainland officials don't appear moved. The island that she fought for, along with her community in the Bronx. "Before this disaster, Puerto Rico was already an economic disaster". Because the Puerto Rican government is hobbled by the recovery, the final death toll is still a mystery. All the agricultural land has disappeared. Speaking in San Juan, Ryan pledged additional federal assistance, saying that an aid package passed by the House yesterday - quote - "isn't the last". These flights also bring in resources, including humanitarian aid and pet food, that are distributed to the sister shelters.
