    I guess that mayor wants the US to rebuild their entire infrastructure for free since they let their power grid go to hell. It's especially frustrating to hear that no PR truck drivers are helping. We have to send our Nat'l Guards down to drive the trucks? I always was taught that God helps them who help themselves, but guess I'm another one of those evil Republicans.

    Perhaps the difference between the way the hurricanes in Texas, Florida and PR were handled lies in the local governments. Texas and Florida have organized, business-like governors--Republicans. PR has Democratic leadership more similar to the way things were handled in Katrina by the Dems. What a shocker that PR has its collective hand out. Of course we have to help, but it would be nice if they'd do a bit, too.

    And just like I knew they would, the MSM/Dems has/is
    been going non-stop anti Trump on PR.

    The vast majority of the "blame" for this is on
    PR and their corrupt officials. There have been
    several times over the last few decades where
    infrastructure failings have happened but they
    have just muddled thru it. A major CAT 5 hit to
    the island was a certainty and they were not ready
    for it. That is not Trump's fault.

    The Feds reaction to it has also been pretty damn
    good given the location. Puerto Rico has the
    Atlantic Ocean to the north and the Caribbean
    Sea to the south. In other words, it's a big island.

    You can't just send a convoy of power company
    trucks to help out with the rebuild. Trump can't
    wave a magic wand and have the island "all better'.

    What should have been done better? Well PR needs
    to get its financial house in better fucking order and
    they better do it quick. Even if "Lord oBAMA" were
    still President, that still needs to be handled. The
    islands disaster teams & supplies need a lot more
    attention. A lot. This will happen again.

    And Mr. President, will you please think twice
    before you get into a childish Twitter War with
    people that have just suffered a major hurricane
    hit over an ENTIRE island???
    May the FORCE be with you!

    I cannot fault the PR truck drivers. They have homes and family and a flattened house and no gasoline to get to work. Where are the local volunteers that helped here even when they had losts their homes?

    I heard it was a truck driver's union issue.
