  1. Trump again harps on Hurricane Maria death toll as Florence kills in the CarolinasRead the original story w/Photo

    Saturday Sep 15 | The Miami Herald

    With the deadly remnants of Hurricane Florence still pounding the Carolinas , President Donald Trump took to Twitter again late Friday night to question the number of deaths in Puerto Rico attributed to last year's Hurricane Maria. Having already drawn widespread criticism from members of his own party earlier this week for a claim made without evidence that the death toll was ginned up by Democrats in order to slime him , Trump once again tried to cast doubt on the estimated 2,975 killed by Hurricane Maria in the U.S. territory.

  2. Trump claims without evidence that Democrats distorted Hurricane Maria death tollRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Sep 13 | The Miami Herald

    President Donald Trump argued Thursday, without evidence, that a recent report that about 3,000 Puerto Ricans died due to Hurricane Maria was a political stunt by Democrats "to make me look as bad as possible" and that government officials and university researchers "just added" people who died from natural causes to the official list. The accusation comes a week ahead of the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Maria's landfall in Puerto Rico, which set off a logistical and humanitarian crisis for the U.S. territory's 3.3 million U.S. citizens.

    Tuesday Sep 11 | The Miami Herald

    Manatee County Supervisor of Elections Mike Bennett said his office will comply with a federal judge's ruling last week to provide Spanish-language sample ballots ahead of the Nov. 6 general election. Bennett said the quicker someone - especially from U.S. territories like Puerto Rico - can learn English and assimilate into the American society, the quicker they can become successful and live the American dream.

  4. Trump didna t do a a fantastic joba in Puerto Rico. Ask the loved ones of 2,975 deadRead the original story w/Photo

    Saturday Sep 1 | The Miami Herald

    That's one heck of a jump from the 64 originally reported by the government - and the most damning evidence of how tragically inadequate the Trump administration's response was to the catastrophic national disaster. It's also an indictment on the island's leadership, which tried to hide the scope of the devastation by stubbornly clinging to wildly inaccurate figures, even after scientific researchers and respected media like the New York Times covering the aftermath were reporting differently.

    I read with great interest the July 26 op-ed in the Miami Herald, "Philanthropic foundations have yet to come through for hurricane-torn Puerto Rico." The devastating impacts of Hurricane Maria remain, and the story of Puerto Ricans attempting to recover, should continue to be front and center in the media and beyond.

    Jun 30, 2018 | The Miami Herald

    Puerto Ricans living in Florida may have liberal leanings, but they're more likely to know Gov. Rick Scott than U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and have a higher opinion of the state's Republican governor than Florida's only statewide elected Democrat. That's according to a Florida International University poll conducted last month and released Saturday, adding more evidence that Scott is making headway among a community of voters that could have an outsized influence on November's U.S. Senate race.

    May 2, 2018 | The Miami Herald

    An aging C-130 Hercules that rescued and resupplied U.S. citizens after last year's hurricanes crashed onto a highway in Georgia during what was supposed to be its final flight, killing all nine Puerto Ricans on board. After more than 60 years of government service, the huge plane was being flown into retirement in Arizona, reducing Puerto Rico's National Guard fleet to five similar planes, two of which need maintenance and aren't being used, Adjutant General Isabelo Rivera said.

    When a tiny Montana-based company secured a $300 million no-bid contract to restore power in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, the Federal Emergency Management Agency was quick to distance itself from the ensuing backlash. FEMA Region 9 Deputy Administrator Ahsha Tribble praised Whitefish Energy's work in Puerto Rico during a Puerto Rico Financial Oversight and Management Board meeting in New York on Feb. 1, according to video obtained by the Miami Herald.

    Puerto Rican Gov. Ricardo Rossello on Friday slammed the federal government's response to Hurricane Maria, saying residents of the island, who are U.S. citizens, are being treated like "second-class citizens." Rossello and other critics have complained that the federal aid given to Puerto Rico after its worst natural disaster has not been equal to that given to Florida, Texas and California after similar disasters.

    Jan 11, 2018 | The Miami Herald

    Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello intends to throw his political weight around in the 2018 elections, mobilizing Puerto Ricans who recently moved to the mainland to vote against lawmakers he says "turned their back" on the U.S. territory in its time of need. Rossello's threats are ostensibly aimed at Republicans in Congress tasked with doling out billions in disaster aid and in charge of an overhaul of the nation's tax system, where Puerto Rico's status as a U.S. territory creates rules that don't exist on the mainland.

But having failed to force a change, RossellA3 is changing tactics now that the Republican tax overhaul bill is headed toward a final vote.
