Visit to Puerto Rico was publicity stunt by Cuomo

Visit to Puerto Rico was publicity stunt by Cuomo

The Trump administration has removed statistics from a federal website that revealed how dire the crisis in Puerto Rico remains in the wake of Hurricane Maria, according to a new report.

"To the people of Puerto Rico: Do not believe the #FakeNews!" he wrote on Saturday. The officers will help local police enforce curfews and address other security concerns.

Over 250,000 students are now enrolled in college in Puerto Rico, where many areas are still without potable water and electricity. He observed Hurricane Maria's damage, shook hands with officials, and talked federal funding. "So it's sort of we gave an inch and they want a mile which is great it's that sort of support that we're seeing from across the system", Cohen said. The storm took out the island's national electricity grid and left the population without power and drinkable water.

The vice president was aiming to reassure people in the US territories that the Trump administration will help the islands recover from the massive storm. "Unfortunately, his visit to Puerto Rico, this week, did not assure me of healing and I was hoping for healing and instead his comparisons and complaints gauged deeper wounds". Puerto Rico's Treasury Secretary is seeking between $6.0 billion and $8.0 billion in aid from the US government to keep the commonwealth government running for the next few months. NY has the largest Puerto Rican population outside the island, and it has been preparing for an influx of residents after Hurricane Maria wrecked the island.

Puerto Rico had already filed for bankruptcy with a USA bankruptcy court earlier this year, and it is struggling to pay for more than $70.0 billion in unpaid bills. "We're going to have to wipe that out".

Puerto Rico officials didn't make their first formal request for interstate assistance until September 21, the day after Maria struck.

"And unfortunately, some of us are beginning to think that maybe it's because the U.S. Virgin Islands is a primarily black territory that we're not hearing anything in the news", Plaskett added. Otherwise, their government will shut down by November 1.

"As far as the political noise, we filter that out, keep our heads down, and continue to make progress and push forward restoring essential functions for Puerto Rico", he said. White House budget director Mick Mulvaney hastened to say the president didn't mean what he said.
