Hospital Ship Arrives in Puerto Rico, DoD Works on Commodity Distribution

Hospital Ship Arrives in Puerto Rico, DoD Works on Commodity Distribution

Donald Trump downplayed the severity of the hurricane during his visit as he claimed Puerto Rico should be proud only 16 people died.

Brennan reports that Mulvaney was not aware of why Mr. Trump referred to Goldman Sachs as the bank to step up in "wiping out" the debt and was not aware if Sachs did indeed own the debt.

The Registered Nurse Response Network has more than 12 years of experience providing medical care after disasters such as Hurricane Katrina, the South Asia tsunami and Hurricane Harvey in Texas. "We are dying here, and I can not fathom the thought that the greatest nation in the world can not figure out logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles", Cruz said. "You can be very proud of all of your people, all of our people working together".

She suspects Trump "didn't even know that Puerto Rico was an island that was part of America".

More than 30 deaths on the island have been attributed to the hurricane, which also knocked out Puerto Rico's entire power grid and left many of its 3.4 million residents without potable water.

"And that's fine, we've saved a lot of lives".

She also criticized him for comparing the "devastation of lives" from Hurricanes Maria and Katrina, saying "you don't use death as a talking point".

During his televised meeting with emergency responders and officials of Puerto Rico, he went out of his way to praise - and seek compliments for - the federal response.

Thankfully, Yulín Cruz seems to have had an easier time getting White House staff to understand Puerto Rico's needs, and through them has managed to make some headway in getting the island what it needs to survive. Resources, including paper towels, are much-needed for Puerto Ricans, but it's telling how Trump needed to have a packed crowd delightfully squealing at his small contribution. Most residents still don't have access to electricity or mobile phone signals and are having trouble finding fuel for their generators or cars.

Ortiz, who has passed out home cooked food to people who don't have enough food to eat, said the Salvation Army had distributed aid in Playita in recent days, but he had seen no federal effort.

People have taken to Twitter to hit back at the president's decision to joke about money during a crisis.

Gov. Ricardo Rossello also said he believes the hurricane that struck on September 20 with winds over 150 miles per hour caused $90 billion in damage across the Caribbean island.
