Trump at the Texas Border

Hard to find Video. Wonder Why? Puerto Rico Congresswoman Praises Trump and Federal Response to Hurricane Disaster.

With all the Democrats criticizing Trump in unison talking points it's refreshing to hear what some of the folks in Puerto Rico actually think about Trump's response to the disaster!

Rep. Jennifer Gonzalez-Colon is the non-voting Congressional Representative for Puerto Rico in the U.S. House. At a meeting Tuesday she described the Federal government's response to the disaster in the island territory:

REPRESENTATIVE GONZÁLEZ-COLÓN: Thank you, Mr. President. The first thing is that, before we were hit by Maria, we were hit by Hurricane Irma. And during that time, before the hurricane, here was FEMA acting together with a lot of employees. More than 4,000 people were here in the island from the different branches of the military -- HHS, Navy, Army, FEMA -- and all the staff working together before the hurricane hit. They were here before, during, after the first hurricane, and they continued to stay on the island, boots on the ground. During Maria -- same thing.

I think we never got the level of communication between the federal government and the government like never before. And we are in the path of the hurricane, so we are used to receiving hurricanes, but never before a Category 5. The amount of devastation is unheard of. But during all this time, we got the federal government by our side, doing the job of the people here, like you in the military, doing all that has been asked. All the questions and requests that the governor did, the President and his Cabinet accomplished it and send more people, and has continued to send in more people -- trucks, drivers, and resources.

Thank you, Mr. President, for all you've been doing for the island.
What a shame that Democrats continue to use political talking points when what is needed is help to restore Puerto Rico. Trump is getting the job done!

Loud cheers for Trump at another event handing out supplies:

Death toll from Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico has risen to 34. It's a miracle it wasn't higher but pre-storm preparation by the Trump Administration also played a role!
