San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz is desperately trying to get FEMA to save her city after Hurricane Maria devastated it.
It has been two weeks since the storm hit, and 43 percent of the island still has no water and almost all of Puerto Rico has no power. And while the death toll may only be at 34 people, there is no actual way of telling how many people have been killed yet. The continuing horror of the situation had forced Cruz to beg for help:
When asked by ABC News’s Martha Raddatz FEMA Director Brock Long said they had “passed” on the mayor’s calls for aid. “We filtered out the mayor a long time ago. We don’t have time for the political noise,” he said.
Trump’s administration has already made it clear how they feel about Puerto Rico, as they continue to ignore their cries for help.
But as Hurricane Nate began to approach Louisiana, Trump began scrambling for relief before the storm had even hit Although, he claims that while he was out playing golf—again.
If Puerto Rico were a red state instead of just a territory, Trump would have had FEMA clean up the island in a week.
