The President, and his whole administration however, didn’t leave the matter unattended. They worked non-stop to send help and assistance, to the victims. Unfortunately, the mainstream media didn’t say a word about these efforts.
And on top of everything, they are now even trying to blame President Trump for the suffering of the people in Puerto Rico. The San Juan Mayor has welcomed the opportunity to bash the President with open arms, feeding the liberal media lies.
In a recent interview, she gave some interesting responses, listing the reasons why her city didn’t receive the help that they so desperately needed.
According to the Conservative Treehouse, Colonel Michael A. Valle, the Commander of the 101st Air and Space Operations Group as well as Director of the Joint Air Component Coordination Element, 1st Air Force, and also, the one responsible for the relief efforts after Hurricane Maria came forward to issue a statement of his own.
He said : “They have the generators, water, food, medicine, and fuel on the ground, yet the supplies are not moving across the island as quickly as they’re needed.
It’s a lack of drivers for the transport trucks, the 18 wheelers. Supplies we have. Trucks we have. There are ships full of supplies, backed up in the ports, waiting to have a vehicle to unload into.
However, only 20% of the truck drivers show up to work. These are private citizens in Puerto Rico, paid by companies that are contracted by the government”.
The reality is that Teamsters Union drivers didn’t want to work. It surely cannot be Trump’s fault if only 20 percent of drivers showed up to distribute the supplies that his administration provided.
But this is not all.

The San Juan Mayor was invited to the FEMA Command Center to look at the operations herself, but she also refused to show up.
So even though she puts all her efforts into charming the people on the mainstream media, she is deceiving them badly, because it looks like at the end of the day, President Trump is not the one who is supposed to take the blame.
The liberal media have once again twisted the narrative to make the President look like the bad guy.
