Trump claims Bahamians are very bad people, criminals, refuses to let helpless Bahaman refugees into the USA...
Two islands out of the country were impacted.

Bahamians can take care of Bahamians. Other island not affected.

As a side note, the aviation community is fairly tight and the word has gone out for those with aircraft to assist in flying in relief supplies.

I did this flying from Fort Lauderdale Executive to Grand Bahama and Abaco islands in my Cheyenne. I removed the seats and carpets and converted it into a cargo plane. And the response has been overwhelming. The airspace there is so clogged with airplanes the risk of a midair collision is very real. I saw a FedEx 757 land at Nassau and disgorge hundreds of tons of relief supplies. The crew donated their time. FedEx paid for the fuel.

So those of you crying about Trump, to hell with you. The response has been as stated overwhelming. I have seen it.

Correct.

Some people won't be happy until WE'RE a Third World, banana boat country.
The rest of the islands are just fine. Just standard liberal outrage sprinkled with TDS.

Also, with a passport, they can come to the US just fine.
And a visa.

Y’all just stop with your BS already. Y’all looking like total idiots, Lol.
These liberal lefties are playing the same game of lies as they did about Trump supposedly calling all Mexicans, rapists and criminals. They have no shame at all.

I would think that the Bahamas being a fairly wealthy country should be able to help them within their own country first and foremost.

Secondly, as a former Brit colony that should be on the table but only after the commonwealth that they are part of with 50+ other countries takes a share.

Surely if these actions are taken the 70k bahamans that are homeless would be well taken care of.

Imagine after Katrina if instead of absorbing refugees into other parts of our own country we just pushed them off to Canada and hey...the Bahamas! Again, they are a pretty wealthy country with a high GDP, they should be able to step up and help their own citizenry.

Lastly, that island should be crawling with rebuilding and construction efforts fueled by insurance payouts etc. for years and years to come. It makes sense that they retain a reasonable labor pool?

Where are these agencies when it comes to our homeless and homeless vets? Typical ! You want to look like the good guys, but ignore your own citizens who are living in the street. Then you complain about how they’re ruining your cities. Bunch a hypocrites!

Of course they’re lying. This entire thread (and many others) exposes how severe the TDS has progressed in 3 years, lol.

What’s so atrocious in enforcing our immigration laws, not letting in criminals? Sorry, I forgot, we’re talking about the left here; who will fight to protect MS13 in their sanctuary cites, providing them free healthcare, free shelter, education, etc.

Just another attempt to create a conduit of hate against president Trump. Florida is all in helping the Bahamas.
