As President Donald Trump continues firing off tweets that praise the highly criticized USA response to a growing humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria, other members of his administration are pushing a positive public relations campaign to contradict harrowing on-the-ground reports, according a memo leaked to Axios Sunday morning.
The assertion seemed to surprise Rosselló. Of course, there are areas of Puerto Rico which we haven't really gotten in contact.
Carmen Miranda, 60, of Luquillo, is among those who has faced long lines for gasoline, medicine and supplies. Nine hospitals now have regular electricity service restored, and dozens more are running on generator power. We will make it with or without you because what stands behind me is all due to the generosity of other people. The party has been extremely important to the history of Puerto Rico.
The political jousting has frustrated many lawmakers and observers, who worry that it distracts from the urgent need to coordinate relief efforts. "We are dying and you are killing us with your inefficiency". "I know there's a tendency for fatigue because we've just been through two hurricanes".
Donald Trump has been copping it even more than usual today for a series of Tweets concerning the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico, and even Kim Kardashian, who has pledged her support for the people of the troubled US territory, has joined the chorus of those criticising him. She spent 12 years living in the continental USA and during that time earned an undergraduate degree in political science from Boston University and an advanced degree in public management and policy from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
"For example, on the military side, we're bringing in both Air Force, Navy, and Army medical capabilities in addition to aircraft, more helicopters". Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. Almost half of the supermarkets have reopened, albeit with reduced hours, and about 60 percent of the gas stations have begun pumping, many protected by armed private security guards. She also said her complaints had resulted in more food and water being provided. "All I have is time for people to move forward, get help".
He added that FEMA employees have been forced to rebuild numerous most basic services in Puerto Rico, far beyond the demands that are typical in a disaster area. Then Duke said before leaving Washington that the federal relief effort was a "good-news story" because of "our ability to reach people and the limited number of deaths".
She added, "We've worked so hard to get to where we were and to have so many things that we were so proud of in our country, to just literally revert backward is the most frustrating thing".
CBS News senior national security analyst Fran Townsend, who authored an extensive report on the government's response to Hurricane Katrina, told "CBS This Morning: Saturday" that the federal government has to listen to local officials and "respond to their needs".
