Puerto Rico’s Governor Praises the Administration’s Relief Efforts So Far

The devastation in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria has gone woefully under reported – which is why we here at The Resurgent devoted several hours of coverage to it yesterday. The island is decimated, and it will take a long time for Puerto Ricans to recover from the destruction.

Yet Puerto Rico’s governor, Ricardo Rosselló went on PBS Monday evening and proceeded to praise the Trump administration’s efforts on the island so far.

The president has been very attentive to the situation, personally calling me several times. FEMA and the FEMA director have been here in Puerto Rico twice. As a matter of fact, they were here with us today, making sure that all the resources in FEMA were working in conjunction with the central government.

We have been working together. We have been getting results.

It’s worth nothing that Rosselló is a Democrat.

Now, there’s a long way to go, but Rosselló has given all of us some encouraging news (especially considering the media wants us to believe that all Trump does is tweet about the NFL).

Continue to pray for Puerto Rico. Continue to give to reputable organizations that will make a difference. Without continued help and support, Puerto Rico will take even longer to emerge from this immensely difficult time.
