President Trump Tweets Puerto Rico Can't Get Aid 'Forever'

President Trump Tweets Puerto Rico Can't Get Aid 'Forever'

We want them to be safe and sound and secure.

The festival helped take the pressure off high school student Natalie Hernandez.

Trump has been roundly criticized for his administration's response to Hurricane Maria, which devastated much of Puerto Rico.

So why would Trump treat Puerto Rico like second class citizens?

The decimated infrastructure on Puerto Rico has made deliveries of supplies and aid almost impossible, especially to the smaller towns. It was announced Tuesday by Governor Cuomo that 425,000 pounds of supplies donated by New Yorkers had arrived in Puerto Rico.

The President responded, accusing Puerto Rican officials of wanting "everything to be done for them".

President Trump suggested again on Thursday that Puerto Rico bore some of the blame for its current crisis following twin hurricanes, and that there were limits to how long he would keep troops and federal emergency workers on the island to help. JetBlue transported additional supplies on board a passenger flight to Puerto Rico Saturday.

This shipment is the latest in a long line of efforts by NY to help Puerto Rico in their time of need. But Trump was too busy attacking Colin Kaepernick and the NFL's players who are protesting racial oppression and police killings of Black people to focus on Puerto Rico. Last week, UPS delivered more than 100,000 bottles of water donated by New Yorkers from across the state. One-third of people remained without water, including more than half in the island's north and west. Funds and in-kind contributions are being solicited from the business community, with a minimum donation of $10,000.

Prior to this weekend's shipment, NY previously sent more than 150,000 bottles of water, 4,000 canned goods, 17,000 packages of baby wipes, 4,000 packages of diapers and 10 generators to the island.
