Did the Mainstream Media Blame Puerto Rico for Its Hurricane Disaster?

"It will go into effect immediately", Sanders said on her Twitter account. Gray says, "I'm very anxious and we all are anxious to get back to normal very, very soon but I think it will be a long road before that happens".

"The island of Puerto Rico has no electricity- therefore, the ATMs are not working, credit card machines are not taking any (cards)", Solivan said.

Trump's decision came at the behest of Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello, but others pushed for it as well.

He also said the task of getting aid to the island was hard because of its location in the "middle" of the Atlantic Ocean, but then initially did not temporarily waive the Jones Act, an archane naval code that complicates the relief effort by allowing only US -built and USA -flagged vessels from responding.

Mr Trump has said the United States deployed 10,000 emergency response workers to Puerto Rico after Maria's 140mph winds and torrential rain brought the Caribbean island's fragile infrastructure to its knees.

"The world will see we are treated not as second-class citizens, but as animals that can be disposed of", Cruz said of the treatment she felt Puerto Rico had received.

As though criticizing Mayor Cruz wasn't crass enough, Trump invoked the racist trope of lazy minorities hungry for government handouts just for good measure.

Puerto Rico, a USA territory in the Caribbean, was left devastated after Hurricane Maria made landfall on the island as a Category 4 storm earlier this month.

Floridians and Puerto Ricans are all Americans -and our federal government is failing Puerto Rico in its greatest time of need. He noted Trump had waived a matching funds requirement, which means the cash-strapped island won't have to contribute to the initial costs of the federal assistance. They say Puerto Ricans, who depend on imports, absorb extra shipping costs for items that could be shipped directly from American ports to Puerto Rico with readily available foreign crews, but instead must be delivered by USA flagged vessels.
