Lawmakers say speech proves Trump doesn't care about PR crisis

By Nicole Chavez, CNN

Democratic lawmakers say President Donald Trump's State of the Union speech glossed over the grim reality that at least 3 million of Puerto Ricans are facing.
"To everyone still recovering in Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, California and everywhere else -- we are with you, we love you, and we will pull through together," Trump said.

I've been thinking that after the PR people have suffered so long in the heat and without adequate resources for so long, corporate vultures will swoop in and offer to relocate them to the mainland, pay them pennies for their property so they can get settled elsewhere then bulldoze the wreckage on the island and start building luxury hotels, restaurants, casinos, golf courses, high priced condominiums and gated communities, top of the line infrastructure including cell towers and access to wifi all over the island; food franchises that will kill the mom and pop stores. People who left wouldn't be able to afford to move back and people who remained couldn't afford to stay. Yup, that's America.

... On 3 October, FEMA signed a $156m contract with self-described “serial entrepreneur” Tiffany Brown to deliver millions of meals to the island, according to the New York Times. By 19 October, they had cancelled the contract, Ms Brown – the sole owner and employee of her contracting company – had delivered only 50,000 meals in the time she was supposed to deliver 18.5m.
