Some in the liberal media and Democrats in congress are starting to criticize President Trump for what they claim is a poor response to the disaster caused in Puerto Rico by hurricanes Irma and Maria. They claim that he is spending too much time fighting with the NFL and ignoring the plight of the 3.4 million people on the island as well as the people in the devastated Virgin Islands.
Members of the administration claim that this is far from the truth. There are currently 10,000 federal employees on the island from FEMA and numerous other agencies, including the thinly spread military. Thousands of tons of food, water, medicine, and fuel have been delivered. The problem is that so much of the island is still flooded and so many infrastructures destroyed that getting the supplies to the most desperate areas is still impossible.
