20,000 pallets of water bottles found unused on Puerto Rico runway

20,000 pallets of water bottles found unused on Puerto Rico runway

President Trump said that 3,000 people "did not die" due to hurricanes in Puerto Rico a year ago - then blamed the Democrats for releasing numbers that he called misleading.

"Potentially, Hurricane Isaac right now is tracking south of the island, but we are - we had several thousand people inside Puerto Rico right now working on long-term recovery that has shifted to the response mode to monitor, as Isaac passes to the south", Long replied. "And I can not fathom the thought that the greatest nation in the world can not figure out the logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles", she said.

The mayor of Ceiba, Angel Cruz Ramos, told CNN he's grateful for the generosity, but believes that too much water was delivered at the wrong time.

On Thursday, Mr Trump wrote in a pair of tweets that Democrats were attacking him "when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico". If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list.

In a statement, the GSA Administrator for Puerto Rico, Ottmar Chávez, said FEMA "reported that it had an excess of bottled water in May 2018, before I became the agency's administrator".

After going on to talk about Puerto Rico barely getting by now right now, Joey Crack went on to pray for those in the path of Hurricane Florence and hopes the USA government will do a better job with this relief effort.

Cruz went after Trump on Twitter after the president told reporters that "Puerto Rico was an incredible, unsung success" without mentioning the staggering new death toll of nearly 3,000 Americans. "If you're in Florence's path and considering riding it out, your president just said that a hurricane response where 3,000 die is his measure of success".

The co-host - whose family was directly impacted by the Puerto Rico storm - gave Trump a verbal pummeling while talking about reports that the administration took $10 million away from FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Agency) - and gave it to ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), noted Mediaite.

The administration's efforts in Puerto Rico were widely criticized as slow and insufficient. "I think Puerto Rico was an incredible, unsung success", the president said.

That was before a recent study found 2975 people died as a result of Hurricane Maria.
