20,000 pallets of water bottles found unused on Puerto Rico runway

Trump rejects Puerto Rico hurricane death toll 20,000 pallets of water bottles found unused on Puerto Rico runway

"The image of my dead husband immediately came to my mind.as well as all the lives that were lost". He is the one who gave out the A+ ratings.

"Nobody is singing his praises because we all saw what happened", San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz told The Associated Press.

"The administration killed the Puerto Ricans with neglect", she added.

Ms Cruz shot back: "If he thinks the death of 3,000 people is a success God help us all".

President Trump said that 3,000 people "did not die" due to hurricanes in Puerto Rico previous year - then blamed the Democrats for releasing numbers that he called misleading.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in a statement on Wednesday said it, "purchased the water as part of its supplies and determined there was a surplus" before making the water "available to any agency that needed it".

"Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!" he tweeted. "The Trump administration led us to believe they were helping when they weren't up to par, and they didn't allow other countries to help us. If we were another state, the response would have been much faster".

Verizon says its technicians will install the necessary equipment and configure the Verizon router free of charge. Verizon says it will expand 5G broadband internet to additional cities, but didn't provide a time frame.

They said about 4,600 people died in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of the hurricane from delayed medical care. From Sept. 30 to October 7, not one of those checks was approved.

For Maria, there was a large gap between when the first loan was approved and when loans started ramping up.

But perhaps worst of all is the fact that Trump is using words like "tremendous" and "success" to describe a response to a storm that ultimately killed nearly 3,000 people, more than the roughly 1,800 killed by Hurricane Katrina and about the same number of people who were killed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Overall, compared with Harvey and Irma, Maria saw more funds loaned to homeowners rather than business owners.

Earlier this month, the island's governor formally raised the death toll from the 2017 storm to an estimated 2,975 from 64 following a study conducted by researchers at George Washington University.

Bernie Sanders added:"Nearly 3,000 people died". During a visit to the island last September, Trump tossed paper towels into a crowd and told Puerto Rican officials that they should be proud the damage did not compare to the havoc wreaked by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, which he described as a "real catastrophe".
