Air National Guard members join Hurricane Maria relief effort

Air National Guard members join Hurricane Maria relief effort

As I listened to the first responders who have helped so many people, and to the local residents who lost so much, I was heartened by the stories of neighbors helping neighbors, and a community coming together in tragedy.

Fox News's Geraldo Rivera has been in Puerto Rico for a week now following the plights of individuals after Hurricane Maria destroyed large swaths of the island. All you have to do is do the right thing.

According to the government, 35 of the flights are domestic and four are international.

But Mulvaney reminded audiences not to take Trump too literally in an interview on Wednesday. They chanted, in both English and Spanish, "More aid, no debt, " and "¡El pueblo unido, jamás será vencido!" or "The people united will never be defeated".

During the presidential election last year, the former real estate developer-turned President called himself the "king of debt" and suggested he would cut a deal with US government bondholders to restructure the country's $US20 trillion debt.

Just as with Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, this Administration will continue to offer support and resources in the wake of this natural disaster.

Realizing what he's said (and that numerous people have died), he begins to backtrack so fast.

To administer health care to people in need, the island is in desperate need of power. The U.S. territory's government counted two suicides among the death toll, which now stands at 34, and with many communities still waiting for power and clean water, there is concern about others reaching a breaking point.

According to Alejandro De La Campa, FEMA's federal coordinating officer, the agency is expanding water distribution centers, and 78 tanker trucks are currently operating on the island. The debt, a result of generations of mismanagement, was enabled by Wall Street, which was enticed by the fact it was tax-free everywhere in the U.S. and risky enough to provide rich yields. "You can buy a $60 one-way ticket to Miami or an $89 ticket to New York, and you are a citizen here", LeCompte says.

Foss said it has deployed a multiple disciplined team consisting of operations, fleet engineering, project management, safety, marine assurance, supply chain, legal and finance. So I am asking the members of the press to send a mayday call all over the world.

"It makes you very proud to be an American when you see the job they've done", the President said of the medical staff at the hospital. But the island is still a disaster zone.

"There had been warnings that the levees needed repairs for 10 years before Katrina, so the damage Katrina did in New Orleans can be blamed on the state, just like in Puerto Rico", said Lopez Rivera.

'There's a lot of love in this room, a lot of love, ' Trump said. In his brief conversation with Rivera, Gen. Jeff Buchanan, who is leading the response, noted that they "really need fuel".
