Default Re: What's the future of the Trump administration?

Puerto Rico: the mayor of San Juan is begging--literally--for someone to cut through the red tape that has desperately needed emergency supplies, such as drinking water, stuck in the dock of San Juan, instead of going to the towns and the people who need it.

Trump is playing golf this weekend, after tweeting that a) Puerto Rico owes so much money, 'hard decisions' will have to be made about 'rebulding' and b) everything is fine an dandy there.

Icing on the devastation cake: reports of cholera in Puerto Rico have begun to surface.

Two reminders: Puerto Rico is a US territory, and everyone born there is a US citizen. Not a sorta-citizen, not a second-class citizen, but a full fledged US citizen. The US government exists to take care of its citizens--and it's letting *these* brown, Spanish speaking US citizens die.

Second reminder: Congress just approved a $600BILLLION budget for the military, but the ass in the White House waffles about how much it would cost to rebuild an island full of US citizens.

Oh, and just for fun: Flint, Michigan still doesn't have clean water or a workable water system. They haven't have potable water since April 2013, when the government switched the water supply to Flint, from the Huron Lake to the Flint River, to save money. The extent of the poison wasn't known for months, and the GOP governor who basically sat on his hands while thousands of his constituents were poisoned to save money, is still there.
