Rally For Puerto Rico Planned Wednesday At The Capitol

President Trump issued a warning Thursday to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico, saying the US territory's infrastructure was a mess before the storm and warning that federal officials can not stay on the island "forever". Trump wrote in a series of tweets. The president adds: "We can not keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been incredible (under the most hard circumstances) in P.R. forever!"

In his belated visit to Puerto Rico, he described hurricane damage in the past tense, congratulated those who have heaped praise on him (one wonders why), tossed out rolls of paper towels and bragged about the comparative low death total (which likely rose as he spoke).

As the death toll in Puerto Rico rises to 45, and many more deaths are expected to be reported in the coming days and weeks, the small U.S. territory continues to suffer from a lack of food, water, shelter and supplies.

Jerry Jones Says Any Cowboy Seen "Disrespecting The Flag" Will Not Play
Jones said a phone conversation with Trump after the display in Arizona included Trump telling him there was a rule on the books. It's so important if that's what the country is looking at to look at [the protest] differently'.

Weeks after Maria made landfall, 84 percent of Puerto Ricans don't have power. UNICEF USA also delivered emergency supply kits to provide approximately 60,000 people with basic hygiene supplies, including water purification tablets, water buckets, soap, toothpaste, detergent, sanitary pads and more. The main issue with that hurricane was that the levies broke, sending flood waters into the city, drowning hundreds or even thousands of people while destroying virtually everything in its path. The Fund will invest in disaster relief, sustainable rebuilding, and capacity building for MA nonprofits that will serve the substantial migration of Puerto Ricans to Boston and throughout the Commonwealth that is expected in the months ahead. Trump tweeted a little after 7 a.m.

"Puerto Rico survived the Hurricanes, now a financial crisis looms largely of their own making", tweeted Trump, apparently quoting television newscaster Sharyl Attkisson. "They. want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort".

More shipments of supplies donated by New Yorkers and a top state official are being sent to Puerto Rico, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday.
