President Trump and FLOTUS arrive in Puerto Rico

The President is out leading from the front.

Today the President and his team landed in Puerto Rico to see the damage first hand and talk with the survivors. In an unexpected move, he also met with San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz. The President and the Mayor had a small disagreement, but Trump, always the leader and never the politician, but differences behind him and concentrated on helping the victims of Hurricane Maria.
Here are more details from

President Trump visited storm-ravaged Puerto Rico on Tuesday to survey damage and talk to residents, while also meeting and briefly praising the San Juan mayor following their feud over the administration’s response to Hurricane Maria.

The president, accompanied by first lady Melania Trump, participated in a packed briefing on storm recovery shortly after landing at Luis Muñiz Air National Guard Base in San Juan.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, who has repeatedly criticized the president’s actions since the storm wreaked havoc on the U.S. territory last month, was seen shaking Trump’s hand and joining him for the briefing in a hangar.

Trump didn’t mention Cruz in his remarks to the media. But – in comments that seemed meant to draw a contrast – the president singled out Ricardo Rosselló, the governor of Puerto Rico, for praise.

“This governor did not play politics,” Trump said. “He didn’t play it all. He was saying it like it was. And he was giving us the highest grades.”

Trump is in Puerto Rico for several briefings and to visit with storm victims. He is meeting with senior military personnel and government officials, including Rosselló and Kenneth Mapp, the governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands, which was also severely damaged by the storm.

“Now, I hate to tell you Puerto Rico, but you’ve thrown our budget a little bit out of whack,” the president said at the hangar briefing. “Because we’ve spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico. And that’s fine, we’ve saved a lot of lives.”

The president pointed out that 16 people died in Puerto Rico because of Maria — a death count far lower than that of “a real catastrophe like Katrina” in 2005.

As recovery efforts continue to take place with the help of federal agencies, more aid is expected to reach the Island territory. The President’s activities since landing speaks volumes to his character. A true leader isn’t afraid to roll his sleeves up and see what the situation is first hand. That’s exactly what the President is doing.

Puerto Rico has a long road ahead in terms of recovery efforts. Much of the island’s infrastructure has been completely destroyed. Only the might of the federal government, acting under the guidance of the President can restore Puerto Rico to its previous state.

After his trip to Puerto Rico, the President plan’s on flying to Las Vegas.

    my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
