Over the past couple of days, the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico has hit our President with several rude remarks regarding his relief efforts. Carmen Yulín Cruz, slammed Trump this week accusing him of not sending aid to the devastated country after it was hit by Hurricane Maria last month. A fact that is undoubtedly false.
Trump fired back at her in a series of tweets saying that, “The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump,” and “Results of recovery efforts will speak much louder than complaints by San Juan Mayor. Doing everything we can to help great people of PR!”
Now, Marco Rubio has come forth and made sure the public understands that the President HAS done everything possible, and the leftist media is just trying to slander him once again.
“They responded to the storm the way we respond to storms. They responded to it in a way no different than Texas or Florida in terms of the assets. And what that is is the federal government says, ‘We are here,’ to the local government or to the state government, and in the case of Puerto Rico the territorial government there. ‘We’re here to help. Tell us what you need,’” Rubio told reporters.
Despite what liberals are saying, President Trump responded to Puerto Rico’s storm in the same dedicated way that he responded to the devastation in both Texas and Florida. He went all in and and provided all the aid he could.
Rubio tells reporters that the problem, and the difference between Puerto Rico and Texas and Florida, fall in the area’s distribution centers and the community itself.
“The problem is, as I said to someone yesterday, there’s aid getting to Puerto Rico, but it wasn’t getting to Puerto Ricans because it had to be distributed from San Juan to the different municipalities and then within those municipalities distributed to people. They had established this sort of hub and spoke system where all the aid came in and then had to be distributed out. Those distribution systems were victims of the storm themselves. They were broken.”
Rather than spending all her time in front of cameras slandering our President, the Puerto Rican mayor should spend more of her time trying to help Puerto Ricans. Our President is doing all he can, and he does not deserve the attacks he’s been receiving from liberal media!
