President Trump Announces Visit To Puerto Rico on Tuesday (Video)…

During a meeting at the White House with congressional committee members, President Trump announced he is planning to visit Puerto Rico, and possibly the Virgin Islands, on Tuesday of next week.

The visit is being timed to avoid any impact on first responders, U.S. military units and FEMA crews who are currently working in “urgent mode” to reestablish basic elements of recovery in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria’s devastation.  WATCH:

.

President Trump’s Homeland Security Advisor Tom Bossert and FEMA Director Brock Long have been in Puerto Rico reviewing recovery efforts and coordinating the administration’s efforts to assist the island.

      Another disastrous day for the Left, Uniparty, Bain Capital, MSM and Globalist who are trying everything in their power to convince the world that our President doesn’t care about Puerto Rico and their current circumstance. The problem for them is that the Governor and Mayor of San Juan are painting a totally different picture!

      Here are two POS from the Uniparty that call themselves Republicans!

      But HERE is the reality!

      17h

      Our President decided to slap the Uniparty, Left and MSM around with these tweets!

        Obviously we hope all the good People of PR are taken care of ASAP, and it’s not the average person that is at fault for the fact of no emergency plan. It’s the corrupt govt, as is most of Latin America. The tons of money that congress has sent them should have made the place a paradise. Unfortunately, the money is not used for the purpose of the general welfare, it goes into the pockets of the govt. officials. The public utility is one of the worse offenders of corruption on the Island and consumes what little money that is allowed by the crooks that hoard must for themselves.
        Recently there was an article published that PR just built a statue similar in size to the Statue of Liberty. There is no sense in this mad spending, unless you FOLLOW THE MONEY. This is why PR is always in hot water. we all will keep the people in our prayers. We also hope that they understand the emergency aid that was sent to them as soon as humanly possible. President Trump made a special effort to send Naval vessels, planes etc. All we hear from the likes of the Boston Globe is the President hasn’t done anything to help PR.
        When the dust settles, the PR should be come a State or be separated as an American territory, they want all the free-bees but no allegiance to the Flag or our Country.

          PR has always been in debt and unable to pay. 45% of the people are on welfare, but paid at US rates, not related to the mich lower cost of living. the utility is a big mess.

          The issue last year with the “bailout” was that PR had reached its borrowing limit, and then Goldman Sachs created a “special financial instrument” that circumvented the borrowing limit and got them further into debt. The Wall St. hedge funds, Ryan’s donors, had bought that debt at about 40% of face value, put it in widows and orphans funds, with the proviso that PR could not declare bankruptcy and discharge this debt. It HAD to be paid. Screw the other bondholders that had lent money legally, these vultures had to be paid FIRST. And maybe ONLY.

          PR wanted to default on this debt through a quasi-bankruptcy arrangement. Enter Ryan and assorted other swamp creatures, trying to save the vultures, and possibly use the US taxpayer to bail out PR so it could pay GS, kinda the way we paid to bail out AIG that insured 90% of GS derivatives in the 2008 crisis.

          Sam players, same corruption, no end in sight. So I don’t want to hear these swamp people talk about Trump. PR needs to be cut loose, and let them make their own way.

            Great comment.
            I watched the mayor or assistant mayor of San Juan crying and cussing–if this is the caliber of their government officials no wonder they’re dead broke and in massive debt.

            This is third world crapola and of course we the taxpayers have to pay for it.

            PDJT is dealing with three hurricanes inside 2 weeks and two of the places hit are in the middle of the gosh darn ocean!

            I have an idea. Tell those ignorant ball players TO get in a cargo plane and go help the people of color in PR.

    Despite her criticism of President Trump’s federal aid to Puerto Rico, I wonder how much Hillary has sent to help them? She and Bill are multi-millionaires. They could afford to help the storm victims, but no, all she can do is whine and complain.

    A number of medications and medical devices are produced in Puerto Rico. To that end, the FDA is actively involved to prevent critical shortages, Rx, etc., due to damage to the manufacturing plants. Yesterday, I received an FDA email Statement from FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D. addressing this issue. Additionally, from Fortune.com (below):

    FDA: Puerto Rico Faces ‘Critical’ Drug Shortages After Hurricane Maria Devastation
    Kirsten Korosec, 12:00 PM ET

    [snip]
    The damage caused by Hurricane Maria has crippled Puerto Rico’s pharmaceutical industry, which could lead to critical shortages of certain drugs and medical devices, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said in a warning issued late Monday.

    “We are aware of several other instances where we may soon face critical shortages if we don’t find a path for removal or ways to get production back up and running,” FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in a statement. “This is both a short- and long-term issue. We need to ensure access to these critical treatments for the Americans who need them, but also recognize the important role that the medical product industry plays in helping Puerto Rico sustain its economy and help in its recovery.”

    The FDA said it is working with other agencies to restart the pharmaceutical industry in Puerto Rico to avoid a drug shortage. Since Friday, the FDA has been working to limit the loss of drugs “critical to American patients” due to a lack of refrigeration, storage and transportation, according to the agency.

    I normally donate to the Salvation Army for natural disaster relief. I have heard good things about Samaritans Purse doing relief work after these hurricanes too. I want to make sure my next modest donation goes where it can do the most good. (Already sent donations to TX and to family in FL). Puerto Rico looks like an escalating humanitarian crisis brewing. Can my fellow Treepers help me to decide where to send a donation to best help the folks in Puerto Rico…to an organization that is on the ground there ? I may just split the donation between the two but would appreciate suggestions. Feel so bad for the PR people…it must be very difficult to hang on waiting for help in their current condition. Thanks for any suggestions.

    I have followed the PR bailout fiasco since last year. It is a waste bucket of sloth, corruption, entitlement, ad nauseum. It is NEVER going to be a self-sustaining place until we cut them loose. PR/US policy has been a mess since the Spanish-American War, and the US has made a number of mistakes, but for God’s sake, they don’t even teach English in the schools. 45% of the island is on welfare, paid for by mainland taxpayers, at mainland rates, although the cost of living in PR is WAY below ours.

    I had a friend whose mother was from PR, and had lived in NY for 40 years. She spoke not one word of English. 40 years. No desire to learn it, just here for the bennies.

    This is not salvagable. Never will be. It is like pouring money down a rathole. Cut ’em loose. If they become a state, it will be a disaster. They will vote for every left-wing proposal out there. Humanitarian aid, this one time, th3n cut them loose. Complete waste of space.

      “West Side Story” seemed a pretty apt picture back when I was a young New Yorker. But, as of now, they certainly have been given a clean slate to start over. Lots of debt, but Trump is an expert at turning debt into something helpful. Here’s hoping they rebuild their infrastructure and their culture into something more beneficial to all.

      As a person who grew up from the fifth grade thru high school in
      PR and who has a brother and nephews on the island plus many friends I agree with your assessment of the status of PR. It can never be allowed to become a state . The great majority of puertorricans love PR but hate the USA and our culture. In fact they feel superior to all “Americans ” and they make it a point of saying and claiming to be puertorricans wherever they go in spite of the fact that they are indeed American citizens. Just like Mexicans , they adore their flag but dislike ours. They are Marxist in their thinking and love the freebies they can get and all the free time and holidays ( there areike 20 plus holidays a year there).
      The government corruption is astounding . The judicial corruption is the worse of anywhere in the US . I can’t tell you how many times I’ve witnessed people speak poorly of the USA and mock us . They love to be in the Miss Universe pageant and the Olympics represented by the PR flag which is one of the main reasons they voted against statehood in the past . All the educated professionals are leaving and have left the island. The rest have moved to the mainland and many to the famous Orlando corridor where they all voted for Hillary. The island went wild over Hillary in the primary and also for Marco Rubio .
      My brother will always stay there. So will my nephews. He has built a successful life for himself and loves PR . They will never understand nor care about our heritage : only theirs. And they will forever vote democrat . Even President Trump will not be able to change that mentality I’m sure of this. They will complain and claim they weren’t given enough . Just watch. They are and have always been incredibly ungrateful to the USA. However , many have fought and died in all wars since WWI. Many Vietnam vets and current servicemen. Even they will not vote republican. Pride and a misguided feeling of superiority even when they’re going down will not allow them to change their ways. Just like many Latin American countries , corruption is imbedded in the culture for generations. Good people that have been brainwashed for way too long . Sad but true . Never statehood . They will change our country by obtaining 2 senators plus 4 congressmen plus 3.4 million votes for the likes of Hillary , Marco et al. So never should we feel compelled to allow this. If Hillary had won she would have pushed this statehood for PR immediately. The consequences to our country would’ve been devastating.

      Woman unless he wants the publicity and fanfare to go to her which he doesn’t . Just hope that Melania goes down with him otherwise they will all take it as a slight to their island and themselves. Yes , that’s how truly petty this group is .
