    ps. did anyone read what trump tweeted?

    We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!

    FEMA, the military, and 1st responders. their role as first responders..is to do what they need to and get out.

    sec kelly is explaining on CNN the different between first responders, and the rebuilding effort..

    Oddly, the message to Texas and Florida was the opposite - that the feds would be there as long as needed.

    Really, is anyone surprised?

    FBI agents in Puerto Rico have been receiving calls from "across the island" with residents complaining local officials are "withholding" or "mishandling" critical FEMA supplies -- with one island official even accused of stuffing his own car full of goods meant for the suffering populace.


    The accusations come in the aftermath of deadly Hurricane Maria, which devastated the U.S. territory last month.

    “The complaints we’re hearing is that mayors of local municipalities, or people associated with their offices, are giving their political supporters special treatment, goods they’re not giving to other people who need them,” FBI Special Agent Carlos Osorio told Fox News.

    Osorio, an agent with the FBI in San Juan, said the bureau was investigating the allegations.

    Swamp Island

    You know perfectly well that Puerto Ricans are Third-World screwups. Keeping our ties with that Parasites' Island is against the will of the American people, so it is undemocratic to feel we owe them anything.

    "Trump seems ready to pull aid from Puerto Rico. He took a different tone with Texas and Florida."
    http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/12/politics/trump-puerto-rico-texas-florida/index.html
    Obviously, Trump won the states of Texas and Florida while Puerto Rico votes only in the primaries(which "Little Marco" won)


    Maybe there will be more paper towels for Christmas?:D

    So now the lucky half the island has unsafe drinking water and the unlucky half WISHES they had it that good.

    Why to go Trump ! You sure help at least half of PR turn lemons into something that almost resembles lemonade .
