    Puerto Rico residents outraged after discovering unused aid from Hurricane Maria

    Firefighters investigating buildings for damage after the earthquake discovered a large cache of relief supplies from 2017 that were never distributed.

    While the supplies were immediately turned around for use in helping the earthquake victims, people still want to know why they were never given out in the first place.

    So yeah... we *did* indeed give Puerto Rico aid, but someone mislaid or sat on it.

    The only logical conclusion is that tRumphbl ordered aid to be gathered and delivered to Puerto Rico and then hidden away so that no Puerto Ricans could get it because Blaughmph hates all Puerto Ricans. There is literally no other explanation.

    Someone forgot they were there or there was a miscommunication about who was supposed to see that they got delivered to where they should go.
    Human error.

    Yep forgot about them during the emergency and likely sometime within that year, someone remembered them or ran cross them and by that time the hurricane emergency was over, and they were afraid to tell anyone for obvious reasons.

    The silver lining is they're there now and so close to the epicenter where they are needed the most.

    The outrage is over the prospect that whoever was responsible for these items may have known exactly where they were the entire time and deliberately withheld them for nefarious purposes.

    Anti-Trump San Juan Mayor's Admin Reportedly Under FBI Investigation | Breitbart

    "The administration of San Juan, Puerto Rico, Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz—who rose to fame because she trashed President Trump for not helping the victims of Hurricane Maria*—is reportedly under FBI investigation for corruption.

    Cruz and other members of her administration are under investigation for allegedly keeping supplies from reaching the victims of the hurricane* that damaged much of the island almost nine months ago.

    The FBI reportedly began their investigation into Cruz after Yadra Molina, a former member of Cruz’s administration in charge of procurement, claimed in a February lawsuit that Cruz’s administration retaliated against her for reporting alleged acts of fraud within the administration."

    *Emphasis mine.

    Seems some people forgot this entire incident was supposedly Trumps fault because he allegedly didn't even send aid.

    How many posts have there been demonising Trump for this? And how many times was it pointed out the officials in Puerto Rico harmed their own people, on purpose, to spite Trump? How sick is that?

    Why do people condone such actions by acting offended only if Trump can be accused? People died because this aid was not handed out. The thing that realy irks me is all this 'moral outrage' over this incident will just fade away; now that what many of us have said for years is being proved true. Now, conspiracy theory that.

    OP cited video had a pay block on it so I posted it.


    There are literally hundreds of news reports claiming Trump failed to, or outright refused to even send aid.

    Legitimate question: Were people allowed to die in order to wrap up smear President Trump?

    That was from 2018. What happened with the investigation?

    I agree. I have been pushing that same point for some 2 years now. I have posted the trash dumpsters found with aid in them. Runways filled with decaying goods. Reports of missing shipping containers. I even posted the investigations into politicians that were withholding aid from the public for their own constituents. I even shown the military response to affected areas.

    None of that mattered. People dying in horrid conditions didn't matter. The suffering. The children. None of it mattered if it could not be used against Donald Trump. All that outrage, and puffed up moral anger was an act. Now that it is actualy coming out Trump was right, it still doesn't matter. There are people reading this conversation right now that know they were dead wrong, and will not utter a peep. And the same news media that propagated the lies are in a CYA phase. Not a single apology or inner reflection.

    Might want to ask yourself why... but the answer is harsh, and many do not want to face the truth. The death and suffering of these people were only convenient to them when it could be spun for political gain. Unfortunately, these same individuals will now hunt down the next sensationalised outrage they can blame on Trump; completely letting Puerto Rico's plight fall to the wayside, and disregarding this new group of individuals they use as the next attack.
