Remember when Donald Trump was called an evil racist for not sending more and more and more resources to Puerto Rico after their hurricane two years ago?
Because I remember that.
Puerto Rico Gov. Wanda Vázquez Garced fired the island’s emergency manager, hours after a warehouse filled with supplies was discovered.
The emergency aid is believed to be from when Hurricane Maria hit the island two years ago, the governor said.
Carlos Acevedo, director of Puerto Rico’s Office of Emergency Management, was dismissed Saturday. The governor appointed Maj. Gen. José J. Reyes, the adjutant general of the Puerto Rico National Guard, to replace him.
Earlier on Saturday, numerous pallets of water and other boxes with emergency supplies were found at a warehouse in the earthquake ravaged city of Ponce.
Several residents were seen opening the rolling metal doors of the building and calling for authorities to distribute the supplies. Families began lining up Saturday afternoon outside the warehouse, hoping to get bottled water, food and emergency radios, CNN affiliate WAPA reported.
They’ve lately been begging America for even more supplies – whining that Trump waited a whole week before agreeing to dump more money into this sinkhole.
Did you know they are technically a part of America, and their citizens are US citizens?
Some people don’t know that.
They have demanded independence before, but the US didn’t give it to them, because white people wanted to keep them as a part of the US so we could keep sending billions of dollars worth of water bottles and emergency radios they could leave to rot in random warehouses.
