Don't overlook the Americans who suffer in Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands

Don't overlook the Americans who suffer in Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands

Rihannacriticized President Donald's Trump response to the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria, suggesting that the President is not paying enough attention to the disaster occurring on the island.

Speaking to the press, and taking no questions, she said neither she nor Trump will rest until displaced Puerto Ricans are back home, schools, hospitals and clean water are back and the island's economy is moving again.

Mildred Lopez, a Puerto Rican community organizer and wife of the pastor of the Emanuel Church in Plano, says the members of her church are all Puerto Rican.

Even though donations surge soon after a hurricane, people often forget to help with the long rebuilding process, which can take years.

"Congress must immediately take up an appropriations bill to come to Puerto Rico & the US Virgin Islands' aid", Warren wrote. They are working so hard.

"Maybe from where she's standing it's a good news story".

Did a Horny Leonardo da Vinci Paint This Nude Mona Lisa?
About 20 paintings and drawings of a nude Mona Lisa exist in collections across the world but most have proved very hard to date. Louvre conservation expert Bruno Mottin said "Monna Vanna" dates back to da Vinci's lifetime at the turn of the 15th century.

"The recovery effort probably hasn't been seen for something like this", Trump said.

The mayor said city law enforcement and fire officials also will be deployed to help out in Puerto Rico, once the proper paperwork is processed at the federal level.

Meanwhile, bottlenecks have developed in the distribution of aid that has arrived in Puerto Rico.

As of Wednesday, about 97 percent of the island's residents still lacked power, Gov. Ricardo Rossello said, and about half remained without running water.

"The relief effort is under control".

The Wisconsin Republican said he expects the Trump administration to send Congress a request for a long-term recovery package once damage assessments are conducted.

Demi Lovato's Reason for Getting Sober Will Break Your Heart
She once said: "Something I've never talked about before - but with my drug use I could hide it to where I would sneak drugs". And she added that while she continues to stay well, there are also days when she does "fight temptation".

The complaints came eight days after Hurricane Maria slammed into the United States territory of 3.4 million people, destroying much of the island's infrastructure.

Many people need money, Ruiz said, but there's no easy way to get cash to them. And House Speaker Paul Ryan said the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) disaster relief account will get a $6.7-billion (U.S.) boost by the end of the week.

The president returned to the issue of financing reconstruction on Puerto Rico on Friday.

Almost a week after Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico, President Trump finally waived the Jones Act for the island, allowing more emergency supplies reach the battered territory's shores.

"I really hope things are worse today than they are going to be tomorrow", Rafael Álvarez, vice-president of Méndez & Co, a food distribution company based in San Juan, told The Guardian.

'Big decisions' needed on rebuilding Puerto Rico, Donald Trump says
Data shows that networks may increase coverage on the island, especially ahead of Trump's planned visit next week. The industry has about 90,000 jobs there, and accounts for about 75% of the goods shipped off the island.
