    “All week long you see people carrying water by here. Saturdays and Sundays, in particular, when people are off from work.”

    Here’s the problem. The pump needed to push the water up the hill and into their home. Well, it’s broken. And U.S. sanctions are blocking the country from acquiring new pumps, motors, pipes and replacement parts.

    US Sanctions Leave Millions of Venezuelans Without Water



    Does this president even know what sanctions are ?
    I don't even think he really wanted to be president, to be perfectly honest. It appears that Donald Trump is learning
    as he goes, like on-the-job training. ( He's like Joe Pesci in My Cousin Vinnie) He should have taken lessons from Obama on teleprompter reading , that's for sure.

    Time to go about it in a roundabout way. :tomato:

    It may cost a bit more, but it'll get it done.

    This could be a shining moment for the Clinton Foundation to step in and be humanitarian heroes again. (Oh wait they never really were )

    Impossible. The crisis would be declared normality as the feudal fascists would take over.
