Trump: We can't aid Puerto Rico forever

Carmen Yulín Cruz

The Dominican Sisters of Hope in the United States were told their sisters in Puerto Rico have been through hurricanes and loss of electricity before and know how to cope with these challenges, but the need this time is particularly great.

Nahir Ortiz, 14, cries in her grandmother's arms at the family's local church in the hurricane-ravaged town of Caonillas, Puerto Rico, on Oct. 1. That visit, most memorably, had him throwing paper towels to an audience gathered to see him inside a church.

"And San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, who has feuded publicly with the President over the federal response, said on Twitter that Trump was incapable of fulfilling the moral imperative to help the people of PR. Shame on you.!" According to a study published earlier this year, there were 2,926 large, ocean-going ships in the U.S. commercial fleet in 1960, making up 16.9 percent of the world fleet.

What Maria didn't do, however, was diminish the graciousness, tenacity and will of the Puerto Rican people.

But the loan is intended to be a short-term measure to help the cash-strapped island territory pay urgent bills, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Now, three weeks after the horrific hurricane, around nine indoor cultivation spaces and 19 out of 29 cannabis dispensaries are operational thanks to generators and tanks of water. "And they were screaming and they were loving everything", Trump said of his visit to the Calvary Chapel, where the now-famous tossing of the paper towels took place.

Puerto Ricans, our fellow Americans, are waiting in 13-hour lines to buy water and gas.

One of the worst-hit buildings from the hurricanes were hospitals. These capabilities include the ability to communicate with vessels and aircraft to gather information and the ability to share information with the Department of Defense and other Coast Guard assets and agencies such as FEMA. When they do the autopsy, we'll come to the conclusion of the cause of death.

"There's no backlog in bodies", he said of the deaths that have been reported to the Institute of Forensic Science.

Not even gasoline-powered vehicles can get far before they are obliged to seek a fill-up-which they cannot get because gas pumps rely on electricity to operate.

He thanked the City of Newburyport for its support of his mission. The key thing is that they send what the farmers can use and need.

Puerto Rico was already suffering from a lengthy recession and its government was beset with fiscal struggles to begin with.

People have been trapped in their homes, debris blocking any attempt to escape. "So we are keeping them there".

King said for the seeds to be sent to Puerto Rico, they have to be treated, and ECHO has the certificates to do that, which was why the organization was contacted. They were offered essentials and food as part of their stay.

Flood said she wasn't sure who was going to get what.
