Can Someone Explain The Difference?
Compare and contrast Trump's pledges to Americans in Texas vs. Americans in Puerto Rico.
What do you suppose is the reason Trump pledged to be there "every single day after to restore, recover, and REBUILD!" Texas, but is telling Puerto Rico not to expect help from their government "forever?"
Can someone explain the difference?
"The need to solve the island’s debt problem and update its infrastructure is worthy of serious discussion, but not while people are having to collect unpurified water in buckets from mountain springs — and not as some kind of justification for cutting off relief aid. [...]
This may be the most un-American thing Trump has ever said or done. I am serious that if he actually withdraws emergency assistance while Puerto Rico is still in such condition, Congress should begin impeachment proceedings. Presidents do not get to pick and choose which Americans to help at times of disaster. We are one country, and we do what we must to help fellow citizens in need."
