Trump Insists "Fake News" Misrepresented His Puerto Rico Response In Bizarre Video

Trump Insists

NYPA and its crew was a vital part of the response team assembled by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo after he received a request from Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello, asking for essential supplies, services and assistance in assessing the severely damaged power grid in the USA territory where 3.4 million residents were left without electricity since September 20. The letter says independent damage assessments in Puerto Rico are as high as $95 billion - about 150 percent of the island's gross national product. Kaine will press the Administration to follow through on that commitment to additional, critical aid to Puerto Rico and will make the case to his colleagues in Congress to support it.

"Water and food delivery keeps being a top priority, making sure the people of Puerto Rico have the elements important to survive through this crisis", he said, noting that secondary priorities include power grid restoration and maintenance of generators in hospitals.

The plan, prior to the hurricane, forecast the island having only $800 million a year to service debt, likely meaning major haircuts for bondholders.

"FDA continues extensive efforts to provide direct assistance to the residents of Puerto Rico following Hurricanes Irma and Maria, and is taking new steps to mitigate the impact of these twin disasters on the island's vibrant medical product manufacturing sector". David A. Graham of The Atlantic called Trump's response to the crisis in Puerto Rico "strange" and "disjointed".

In Puerto Rico, Kaine was struck by the enormous magnitude of the damage, which has left the vast majority of Puerto Ricans without power and many without access to clean water or food.

In a joint effort with other senators, including U.S. Sen. He also attached a video purporting to show, "What the fake news media will not show you in Puerto Rico..."

"Increasingly painful to [understand] the american people want to help and US Gov does not want to help".

"As fuel and water supplies dwindle precariously low, damaged infrastructure from roads and bridges to ports and electrical lines exacerbate the already formidable challenges, and threaten to leave the island without power for months to come", the senators wrote. About 88 percent of the island is still without power, the Puerto Rico Energy Authority reported on Saturday. The store serves as a collection site for items to help Puerto Ricans. But with its aircraft still in the testing phase, the company said Friday that the engineers it's sent to Puerto Rico are focused on providing support to NetHope's teams. "They're hanging in there, but they need help".
