US President Donald Trump has griped about emergency relief efforts in hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico, saying federal aid can not continue "forever". Should we use all available resources to actually save Puerto Ricans where possible, or move on to other crises, real, imagined or engineered?
"Puerto Rico survived the Hurricanes, now a financial crisis looms largely of their own making", tweeted Trump, apparently quoting television newscaster Sharyl Attkisson. But Trump was too busy attacking Colin Kaepernick and the NFL's players who are protesting racial oppression and police killings of Black people to focus on Puerto Rico.
It was clear from the start that President Donald Trump's response to the two back-to-back hurricanes that decimated Puerto Rico was going to be bad. We want them to be safe and sound and secure. Instead of going out of his way to turn this chaotic situation into something one would expect from the American government, Trump has chose to attack the whole island via Twitter.
Dozens of residents with ties to Puerto Rico had their spirits lifted at Springfield Technical Community College Wednesday, with a salute to the music and dance heritage of Puerto Rico and Cuba.
Almost 90 percent of the people in Puerto Rico had no power as of October 11. "These are great people".

This shipment is the latest in a long line of efforts by NY to help Puerto Rico in their time of need. When the American people need a leader after a national tragedy or national disaster, Trump will never be there.
Puerto Rico initiative delivered the supplies on chartered planes Saturday and Monday.
