Struggling Puerto Rico Gets ROCKED by More Devastating News from the Trump Administration

In 2017, several hurricanes rocked American states both on the mainland and in the sea. After Hurricane Maria ravaged the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, Trump treated the situation differently than in Texas since Puerto Ricans don’t vote for Trump.

His now infamous visit to Puerto Rico was undoubtedly one of the ugliest moments of his first year in office. At one point, he shot rolls of paper towels into a crowd of hurricane victims like they were dogs. He also blamed Puerto Rico for throwing the U.S. budget “out of whack” while most of the island struggled to find potable water.

After his horrendous visit, he pulled out a naval hospital ship early, refused to extend a temporary allowance for foreign vessels to ship in relief supplies, and engaged in a petty war with the Mayor of San Juan.

A new report says Trump has yet to send Puerto Rico its designated relief funds that are part of the bipartisan disaster aid bill. Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy recently traveled to Puerto Rico, and Gov. Ricardo Rossell√≥ informed him that the Trump administration hasn’t sent a penny.

On January 5th, Sen. Murphy tweeted that 1000 people have died, and half of the island is still living without power:

Puerto Rico is just one of many examples of Trump’s blatant dereliction of duty.
