But all of the celebrities are getting in line and Tweeting that Trump is worried about the NFL while Puerto Ricans are starving.
We could’ve been even more help down there if they wouldn’t have basically run the US Navy out back in 2003 or so.
But Hillary said she’d send the navy. Where’s the navy? Trump obviously doesn’t know what he’s doing.
Semper Paratus! Great to see the Dili Steamers involved.
During a meeting at the White House with congressional committee members, President Trump announced he is planning to visit Puerto Rico, and possibly the Virgin Islands, on Tuesday of next week.
The visit is being timed to avoid any impact on first responders, U.S. military units and FEMA crews who are currently working in urgent mode to reestablish basic elements of recovery in the aftermath of Hurricane Marias devastation
President Trumps Homeland Security Advisor Tom Bossert and FEMA Director Brock Long have been in Puerto Rico reviewing recovery efforts and coordinating the administrations efforts to assist the island.
The left thinks they can turn this into Trump’s Katrina.
Hillary probably doesn’t even know we have a Coast Guard....separate and distinct from the Navy.
Seems like a great opportunity to study what happens when SHTF.
No power, no phone, no internet, very little gasoline and everything is CASH ONLY (credit cards don’t work without internet).
Excellent opportunity to write the great Prepper Manual with examples and things you didn’t think about.
Marines, National Guard, Coast Guard, Army Corps of Engineers are/have been on the job for days. if only our elected gov’t were as constructive and productive as our armed services. sigh.
An upside the Navy’s possession of part of Vieques, and their later expulsion, is that it is an undisturbed paradise in that specific area.
The locals have not pooped all over it and ruined it like a lot of other things and places there.
Tiny horses run free there. It’s pretty neat.
