You're missing the point, again.

Up until today supplies were being delivered by 2 military ships. Supplies were arriving, but not enough to help. Plus, the Blaze article you posted points out that there are more issues on the ground as well.

That's great that your family is doing fine, but don't pretend like that is the story for everyone.

Cares?

Well then why wait for Trump and the state.

Whip out billions of dollars out of your own pocket, or fly there and help them yourself.

Instead of demagoguing Trump.

The best thing that happened to Puerto Rico was getting hit.

They were already bankrupt.

Now cash is guaranteed to be flowing in out of sympathy.

I was going to ignore your post here like I usually do, but then I saw this. Wow. You are a terrible person.

Right because whatever you say is certainly the truth now isn't it.

Remind me again who is trying to score stars off the Trump and PR ?

So an ad hominem instead of linking that source again. I guess we have nothing further to talk about.


Of course we don’t. Once it was determined that you didn’t research the topic before posting, I moved on. By the way the link is still there on the first page for your viewing, but I guess it would be a lot to ask for you to deny ignorance. Plus every interaction I’ve ever had with you has been the same. You attack the person instead of their information they are sharing, so yea I’m done with your child-like temper tantrums.

Most people who are done talking to someone don't need to stroke their ego to let the person know. They just stop talking. But hey, whatever you say.

Maybe Puerto Rico should have spent the 700 million in FEMA funds and preparing the country. Amazing how much of that money just floated away.

There are also still people in Florida and Texas with no homes and electricity. Are we just forgetting them now because of a Natural disaster in PR? Should aid be stopped to them and only be sent to PR?

Why isnt anyone asking other world leaders to help?
Why is this entirely OUR responsibility?

I keep hearing how these are Americans.....

This is Puerto Rico. Another country. They should get HELP, not an all inclusive fix served on a silver platter.

We have actual states in crisis now. Every dollar and able body should go to them.

And we still have our own natural disasters to face. The year isnt over.

Who said anything about providing aid to one over the other? Stop inventing ridiculous arguments out of thin air.

Blatantly false. It's just that you care more about his tweets than his actual efforts.

Sept. 5th - Hurricane Irma - President Donald J. Trump Approves Puerto Rico Emergency Declaration

Sept. 6th - Hurricane Irma - Readout of President Donald J. Trump’s Call with Governor Ricardo Rosselló of Puerto Rico

Sept 10th - Hurricane Irma - President Donald J. Trump Approves Puerto Rico Disaster Declaration

Sept 18th - Hurricane Maria - President Donald J. Trump Approves Puerto Rico Emergency Declaration

Sept. 20th - Hurricane Maria - Statement from the Press Secretary on Hurricane Response and Recovery Efforts in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands

Sept. 21st - Hurricane Maria - President Donald J. Trump Approves Puerto Rico Disaster Declaration

Sept. 26th - Hurricane Maria - President Donald J. Trump Amends Puerto Rico Disaster Declaration

Not only that, but Governor Ricardo Russello commended the administration for its quick response and attentiveness to the situation in an interview with PBS.



JOHN YANG: Governor, are you getting all the aid you need or getting it fast enough from the states?

GOV. RICARDO ROSSELLO: First of all, we are very grateful for the administration. They have responded quickly.
The president has been very attentive to the situation, personally calling me several times. FEMA and the FEMA director have been here in Puerto Rico twice. As a matter of fact, they were here with us today, making sure that all the resources in FEMA were working in conjunction with the central government.

We have been working together. We have been getting results. The magnitude of this catastrophe is enormous. This is going to take a lot of help, a lot of collaboration. So, my call is to congressmen and congresswomen to take action quickly and conclusively with an aid package for Puerto Rico.

We are in the midst of potentially having a humanitarian crisis here in Puerto Rico which would translate to a humanitarian crisis in the United States. So, I call upon Congress to take action immediately. You know, Puerto Ricans are proud U.S. citizens.
www.pbs.org...


You can tell what kind of person virtue-signalling works on by taking the note of the people searching for empathy and action and response time within the tweets and timelines on Twitter.

Wow. What a d1ck. I bet you wouldn't have the balls to say that face to face with someone whose lost loved ones or their home in Puerto Rico.

Keyboard coward.

Bruh... Puerto Rico is an American territory that hasn't been given statehood yet, like Guam & the US Virgin Islands. All Puerto Ricans are American citizens. In fact, it has more American citizens than 21 US States (Iowa, Utah, Mississippi, Arkansas, Nevada, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, West Virginia, Idaho, Hawaii, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, North Dakota, South Dakota, Alaska, Vermont, and Wyoming.)

en.wikipedia.org...

That's like asking why aren't other countries helping out when tornadoes ravage Oklahoma. Isn't the whole point in our federal govt to protect Americans?

Let me guess, yet another hypocrite who complains about Americans kneeling for the flag because of "patriotism", yet is fine with Americans suffering, dying, losing their homes & properties, etc in a hurricane?

Not be so crass, but I care more about NFL football than Puerto Rico.

I've never been there and despite Puerto Ricans being "citizens" they sure don't feel like it.

It's just a fact, NFL football iswas more important to me throughout my entire life more than Puerto Rico.

Just facts...

Your personal opinion (which you state clearly) is "just facts"?

Nah.
