After the Trump administration won praise for effective relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the fake news media and the “resistance” are exploiting the tragedy in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria devastated the Island.
Rather than rationally looking at the facts on the ground, many in the dishonest media are painting it as Trump’s Katrina.
Some headlines are even darker, with the fake news and alt-left seeming to want the world and Americans to believe that Trump and the federal government are intentionally ignoring the devastation because Trump is a racist bigot and the people of Puerto Rico have no electoral votes.
Watch as I bust this myth with the facts from the ground including the praise given to the administration and FEMA by Puerto Rico's governor and their non-voting representative to Washington, DC.
But, while the media was complaining and inventing the news surrounding the federal government’s response, Trump was ramping up the amount of aid sent to the island and making arrangements to travel there himself to survey the damage and support his fellow Americans.
Sometimes, I think the dishonest media forget President Trump is from New York City, home to over a million Puerto Ricans.
