Trump: “Big Decisions” on Puerto Rico San Juan Mayor: “Genocide”

September 29, 2017

The Hill:

The Defense Department has not sent enough troops and vehicles to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico but will soon send more, according to the three-star general newly in charge of coordinating the military response.

Army Lt. Gen. Jeff Buchanan said Friday morning that the Pentagon has 10,000 people helping with the response after Hurricanes Irma and Maria ripped through Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands earlier this month.

“We’re certainly bringing in more [troops],” Buchanan said on CNN’s “New Day.”

“For example, on the military side, we’re bringing in both Air Force, Navy, and Army medical capabilities in addition to aircraft, more helicopters. … [But] it’s not enough, and we’re bringing more in.”

    MSNBC’s “11th Hour” led with this story tonight, the absolutely “1984”-ish NewSpeak from Tump on how “incredible” was his response to Puerto Rico, followed by the mayor of San Juan begging, in tears, to the TV cameras today, for help which is not there, pleading “we are dying!” . I’d already decided his “base” must have a moral and intellectual IQ in the low double digits, but if he gets away with this, I’ll have to revise to the low single-digits.
