So what’s the precise state of affairs at the floor at the island of Puerto Rico? Obviously, there’s no small quantity of devastation thank you to Hurricane Maria, which did incalculable harm previous this month. Which brings us to the following query… What has the government’s reaction been to this disaster? More in particular, what has President Trump’s reaction been?
Well, in accordance to Puerto Rico’s personal governor, Ricardo Rosselló, he’s slightly happy and was once on PBS lower than 48 hours in the past praising Trump’s consideration and reaction to the disaster:
PBS’S OHN YANG: Governor, are you getting the entire help you wish to have or getting it speedy sufficient from the states?
GOV. RICARDO ROSSELLO: First of all, we’re very thankful for the management. They have replied briefly.
The president has been very attentive to the placement, in my opinion calling me a number of occasions. FEMA and the FEMA director were right here in Puerto Rico two times. As an issue of reality, they had been right here with us these days, ensuring that the entire sources in FEMA had been operating along side the central executive.
We were operating in combination. We were getting effects. The magnitude of this disaster is gigantic. This goes to take numerous assist, numerous collaboration. So, my name is to congressmen and congresswomen to take motion briefly and conclusively with an help package deal for Puerto Rico.
Two days prior to that, the Associated Press reported on extra reward and appreciation from Puerto Rico’s governor. What particularly stands proud is Rosselló’s reward for the management’s pro-active pre-planning, and the island’s Resident Commission informing us that Puerto Rico hasn’t ever won this type of coordination sooner than:
Rosselló and different officers praised the government for making plans its reaction intimately sooner than the typhoon hit, a distinction with what Puerto Rico has lengthy noticed because the overlook of three.four million Americans dwelling in a territory with no vote in Congress or the electoral faculty.
“This is the first time we get this type of federal coordination,” stated Resident Commission Jenniffer Gonzalez, Puerto Rico’s non-voting consultant in Washington.

Lest you assume I’m cherry-picking outdated information, Rosselló seemed simply this morning on “The View,” and when requested at once about President Trump’s declare that the federal government is doing a “great job,” Rosselló once more had simplest reward for Trump and for the comfort efforts so far, which he described as “very good” and “very effective.”
Moreover, Rosselló stated that he has simply asked further sources to help with some new logistical issues and the ones requests had been in an instant commemorated.
Here is the entire video. Partial transcript under (emphasis added):
The president has been involved with me virtually every day. So he’s conscious about the devastation, and I thank him for issuing [pre-storm] emergency declarations … verbally, because the typhoon was once hitting Puerto Rico. He has additionally given directions to FEMA and different federal businesses to assist Puerto Rico. So that effort is ongoing and it’s superb and it’s very efficient. However, there are logistical threats we face … The logistical transportation of the entire assist we’re receiving is changing into a type of bottleneck. What we truly want are some human sources, which we’ve asked and FEMA has established the corps of engineers and Special Forces from the DOD [Department of Defense] which can be going to be coming to Puerto Rico so they are able to assist…
The governor’s simplest obvious governmental fear was once with a unique help package deal from Congress, which he clearly desires to see handed briefly.
