We can blame Trump if and when he railroads any attempt to give Long full resources and support without question.
Trump has already tried to gut FEMA to build the wall.
Reports of the proposal were confirmed to The New York Times by an official who had seen the documents and who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the closely guarded budgeting process. Mr. Trump is expected to present the budget this month, although it already is viewed as a largely aspirational proposal created by the Office of Management and Budget of the White House and individual departments to set priorities for Congress.
A spokesman for the Homeland Security Department said he could not comment on the deliberations, and John Czwartacki, a spokesman for the budget office, said it was “premature” to discuss any proposals before an official budget blueprint was released.

We can blame him for administrative disorganization. There are tons of jobs vacant, including a DHS head, that are meant to deal with situations like this.

Using a natural disaster to preemptively trash Trump, some people are sick in the head. Why not wait until he actually does something to deserve criticism in this situation before you spew your hatred?

Federal government plans years-long recovery effort in states hit by Harvey
Federal emergency officials said Sunday they're bracing to help with recovery efforts in Texas and other states hard hit by Hurricane Harvey for years to come.
“This disaster is going to be a landmark event," Federal Emergency Management Agency chief Brock Long said on CNN Sunday. “We’re setting up and gearing up for the next couple of years.’’
As Tropical Storm Harvey dumped massive amounts of rain on Texas and caused what the National Hurricane Center described as "catastrophic flooding" in the southeastern part of the state, Governor Greg Abbott applauded the efforts of the Trump administration as the state prepared for the worst.
"We're very appreciative of our fellow states as well as what the federal government has done," Abbott said Sunday on "Face the Nation."
"I gotta tell you the Trump administration has provided us everything that we need," he said.
