Trump threatens to pull FEMA from Puerto Rico - ABC15 Arizona

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.

Do you think FEMA should stay there forever?

Why not? We've kept the military in Afghanistan for 16 years. Trump said he'd stay with Texas and Florida as long as it took for them to rebuild. Why treat PR differently? It's only been 3 weeks.

He would NEVER make such a comment about Florida or Texas.

After Sandy we were without power for eight days. Crews from many other states came in to help repair our power lines. The comments we heard were that it was a mess - basically held together with chewing gum and duct tape. Was that our fault? Should we abandon American citizens because they haven't been able to afford to update their power grid?

In fact, his tweets about Florida and Texas specifically said he's with them forever, and will stay as long as they need to completely rebuild.

Once the supplies are delivered and the area stabilized, FEMA should leave. Let the locals take care of themselves. This is a STATE issue now.

He didn't say he would stay in Florida and Texas forever; He said he would stay as long as it took to rebuild.


The problem with Puerto Rico is that they had major problems with their infrastructure before the storm. It is not FEMA's job to fix problems that were not caused by the storm. FEMA needs to stay as long as is necessary to get Puerto Rico back on their feet, and then it is the people and government of Puerto Rico's job to take it from there.


I swear you people would find a problem with anything. Saying they will not stay forever is completely benign and reasonable.

All he had to say is exactly what he said for Florida and Texas.

He's a jackass.

I think they should stay as long as it takes to fulfill their mission statement.

FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from and mitigate all hazards.
