They stayed in New Orleans and other areas after Katrina for 10 years. They've been in PR what, a month? I wonder why the different standard? 🤔

Everyday you think this monster can't get any worse, and yet he does something even more vile. Maybe Trump actually is the anti-Christ.
All the Christians love him and treat him as almost a messiah, but that's mostly because he promised them a white heterosexual Christian male dominated society. Trump has been the final straw that has pushed me to atheism.

He's playing to his base. He's promising to make black and brown (and Spanish-speaking) people righteously suffer for their supposed laziness.

The constant need to spin stories to create racism and social division out of thin air gets pretty old.

Trump is a buffoon (in general) but this is just partisan sniping.

I spent 8 years around here defending Obama from the same sort of partisan crap over every little thing so I'm well practiced dealing with it. The OP is just doing what the right wingers did before them.
man, does it ever.

Can you cite some examples of how it was in PR before the storm?


I will be helpful in stating that 'infrastructure' refers to "the fundamental facilities and systems serving a country, city, or area, as transportation and communication systems, power plants, and schools."


Infrastructure | Define Infrastructure at Dictionary.com




For instance, it is my understanding that PRIOR to the storm 100 percent of the citizens enjoyed electrical power, safe drinking water, and cell phone service. PR had, prior to the storm, a network of roads and bridges that one could travel upon. You had functioning schools, hospitals, and government. You had ports that were open for ships, both cargo and passenger. You had a functioning airport.


Anyway, since Mr. Trump is not here to answer my question, perhaps you would inform me of the state of the infrastructure in PR prior to the storm.
Fantastic post.
Doubt you get any responses.

Trump isn’t a Christian, he loves his own wealth more and the poor, needy and sick can pull themselves up by their bootstraps (if they have boots!). He has little or no respect for others so why would he help those in PR; he didn’t even know they were citizens and part of the U.S.

Donny still hasn't gotten over his shock in learning that Puerto Rico is an island, surrounded by water.

An ocean. A very large ocean. And, I did not know this until Trump pointed this out, you can not drive to Puuuerto Riiiico either.
