Rihanna Issues Heartfelt Plea Calling on Donald Trump to Help Puerto Rico

Much of the Island was destroyed, with billions of dollars owed to Wall Street and the banks which, sadly, must be dealt with.

The White House on Thursday waived an act that was preventing foreign ships from delivering supplies to Puerto Rico, more than a week after Hurricane Maria devastated the United States territory. "The relief effort is under control". Rossello has said he was "very grateful" for the help of the federal government and blamed logistics, not politics, for delays in getting help immediately after the storm. The Jones Act requires ships that deliver goods between American ports to be American-built, which isn't a big deal for most Americans.

"The problem has been with the logistics, the parts of the supply chain that move the cargo from our terminal to the shelves or to the tables of the people in Puerto Rico", Ayala said Wednesday.

Trump had issued a temporary waiver for the shipping of petroleum on September 8, soon after the departments of Defense and Energy made recommendations to do so in response to Harvey, which hit Texas on August 25 damaging refineries and pipelines.

Rubio supported the administration decision to name Gen. Richard Kim to lead the Defense Department's response in Puerto Rico, but Rubio wants Trump to go one step further.

Many of its 3.4 million residents have been without electricity, reliable drinking supplies and other basic necessities since the storm struck.

Meanwhile, Puerto Ricans are waiting hours in line to get gas, food and cash. "It's chaos, total chaos", he said.

Critics of the Trump administration have said the island is not getting the same response from Washington as it would if it were a US state, even though its residents are USA citizens.

The governor tweeted "Thank you" to the President's official twitter account Thursday morning. "Now Congress must repeal this law to aid long-term recovery". "Food and water on site", he wrote.

The department said then that there were sufficient ships available to meet the need.

Scott added: "I have directed the Florida National Guard and FWC to be prepared for deployment as soon as we receive a formal request for assistance from Puerto Rico, and we already have an airman from the Florida Air National Guard on the ground in Puerto Rico coordinating air operations".

Apparently stung by the criticisms, administration officials have emphasized the complexity of delivering aid to the island. Large numbers of generators are now on Island. Also on the way are ambulances and 100 trucks carrying diesel and gasoline fuel.

The $40 million in "quick release" funds is meant to restore essential traffic on Puerto Rico's roads and limit further damage, in order to facilitate long-term fix work and recovery efforts. "We anticipate many families affected by the disaster in Puerto Rico may seek refuge in our state".
