One thing that I really do not think that the mayor of San Juan particularly understands is that there are far more people trying to help her city and the island in general when it comes to getting everything restored as possible.
Puerto Rico has been devastated by two hurricanes: Irma and then Maria. The island is a US territory and President Trump has made sure it’s getting the help it needs. Nonetheless, lying liberals like terrorist-supporting Democrat San Juan Mayor Carmen Cruz have lied and said Trump doesn’t care or that he’s been inefficient. However, Puerto Rico’s Governor Ricardo Rossello tells a very different version of events. As Western Journalism reports, Rossello appeared by satellite on The View where he said President Trump has been in constant contact with a “very effective” response.
“Right now, the whole island, the infrastructure is devastated,” Rosello explained. “This hurricane has hit every corner of Puerto Rico. We have no energy grid. We have little access to water.”
The Trump Administration has been helpful. Rossello said Puerto Rico has been “working closely with the federal government to make sure we have all of our efforts ongoing.” Nonetheless, he did also say it is “critical” that Puerto Rico get even more help.
Liberals have really gone after Trump for supposedly not responding well enough to the crisis in Puerto Rico.
When asked if Trump’s assertion that the response has been GREAT is true, Rossello said that the federal government has responded well.
“The president has been in contact with me almost on a daily basis. So he is aware of the devastation, and I thank him for issuing pre-land emergency declarations. He has also given instructions to FEMA and other federal agencies to help Puerto Rico,” Rossello said, adding that the response so far has been “very good” and “very effective.”
In addition, Rossello agreed with POTUS’ claims that the island is hard logistically.
“What we really need are some human resources, which we’ve requested,” he explained, adding that many truckers haven’t reported back to work since the storms and supplies are hard to truck out to some areas.
“It’s a challenging situation,” Rossello said, adding that Irma and Maria have been “the most devastating event in the history of Puerto Rico.”
Currently FEMA and DOD staff are deployed, along with troops to help Puerto Ricans.
FEMA and personnel from the Department of Defense have been deployed to assist the people of Puerto Rico, according to Rossello.
