In an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, the governor of Puerto Rico Ricardo Rosello thanked President Trump for his hard work.
“I have to say that the administration has responded to our petitions. FEMA, Brock Long, has been on the phone virtually all the time with me, checking out how things are going,” said Rosello told CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
Cuomo tried to push the narrative that President Trump is refusing to help Puerto Rico through the hurricane, but Rosello wouldn’t let him. “The president points to you as someone who is providing proof that the effort on the ground is great… and you know that there is a stark contrast between the word ‘great’ and the conditions many of your people are living in. How do you explain these two versions of reality?” Cuomo asked Rosello.
“Within the limitations, everyone has all hands on deck,” he said. President Trump apparently watched the interview and tweeted about it.
Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello just stated: “The Administration and the President, every time we’ve spoken, they’ve delivered. The fact is that Puerto Rico has been destroyed by two hurricanes. Big decisions will have to be made as to the cost of its rebuilding!” tweeted President Trump.
However, the media is now trying to ignore this interview and are still pushing their own agenda. If you research Puerto Rico right now you might find some of the following headlines. “Rihanna Slams Trump on Puerto Rico: ‘Don’t Let Your People Die Like This” from CNN. And “Trump faces growing backlash over Puerto Rico response” from Politico.
