Speaker of the NYC Council to Trump- PR Has “10,000 between troops & relief workers when there were 40,000 in FL with Irma”

While our fellow Americans are dying in Puerto Rico the President of the United States is playing golf in NJ. And it seems it is more than the mayor of San Juan who has had enough. Speaker of the New York City Council, Melissa Mark-Viverito told CNN, “What I was struck with was the devastation, basically, though, the absence of any sort of federal authorities in the three days that I was there, it is about life and death, this is about lack of preparation, lack of planning, lack of appropriate response. What we need to do is save lives, to have more federal workers there and more troops on the ground. We only have about 10,000 between troops and relief workers when there were 40,000 in Florida with Irma. This is not an appropriate response and that has to be acknowledged. We need much more seriousness. We need President Trump to basically pull away from his fragile ego, to get out of his golf course cocoon and get to work. This is on his watch. People are dying, and he needs to respond appropriately and give proper direction.”
