    As mush as I can't stand Trump, he is NOT responsible for the hurricane's death toll. Once again that is the responsibility of the Puerto Rican government and their criminal mismanagement in preparing for this.

    America elected Trump. Knowing he is the king of bankruptcies.

    What Trump didn’t say about his four big business bankruptcies

    So the people of Puerto Rico are responsible for a Category 4/5 hurricane hitting them directly down the middle of the country?

    And, being a US Territory, they are completely responsible for their own country. Even though Republicans in the US will pass such onerous policies as the Jones Act and being a territory, they are not even a country?

    Are you sure you've thought this through? Don't let me call you a Rex T. Trump.

    The announced death count is 34, but in the few reports able to get out, it's said every funeral home is filled to capacity and still stacking bodies. Eventually, when people have time and aren't just trying to survive and aren't spending every day sh!tting their guts out because they are drinking creek water, they will count the bodies. But Republicans are ghouls. They want the body count first. Maybe they are right. Otherwise, we will never know how many the Hurricane killed and how many died from Trump/GOP inaction. Like after Katrina.

    I don't care what you call me. Hurricane disaster aid is a separate issue from debt relief. US states are in debt worse them Puerto Rico. The people there elected corrupt politicians, now they are paying the price. The rich and criminal 1% run Puerto Rico. Debt relief would only be aiding and rewarding those who initially benefited from the loans they took out. You haven't said anything to convince me otherwise.

    It's called Gerrymandering and it's why Republicans control both houses, the presidency, the Supreme Court, and nearly every state legislature.

    We know from the Government under George W. Bush and under Donald Trump they are incompetent and greedy as hell.
    As long as they are in power, recent history has shown us things just get worse and worse.
