Trump’s “Great” Cleanup is Years Behind Puerto Rico’s Needs


A year after Hurricane Maria

❝ A year ago, shortly after Hurricane Maria tore its way across Puerto Rico and upended Ana Rodriguez’s small mountain town, all she wanted was reliable electricity and safe drinking water in her home. She still doesn’t have either.

❝ Her water is bottled and her electricity — which flutters off and on and can’t even power her vacuum cleaner — is something her neighbors in Cidra jerry-rigged after getting tutorials from YouTube videos. (They also snatched abandoned transformers from other towns for their setup.) Rodriguez isn’t expecting the Puerto Rican government or the Federal Emergency Management Agency to come to the rescue.

“People here feel so bad about the government and FEMA,” says the self-employed mother of two. “You can’t say which one is better or worse — they are equally bad.”

If you can’t promise a winning number of votes to the Republican Party and their Fake President – this is the kind of “service” to citizens in need you can expect.

Trump’s trade war cancels Alibaba’s promise of 1 million U.S. jobs


Mercury News

❝ Alibaba Chairman Jack Ma said the company can no longer meet its promise to create 1 million jobs in the United States due to U.S.-China trade tensions, Chinese news agency Xinhua reported on Wednesday.

❝ Ma has already warned that the trade war between the world’s two largest economies could last decades and that China should focus exports on the “Silk Road” trade route, citing Africa, Southeast Asia and Europe.

❝ Ma met U.S. President Donald Trump two years ago and laid out the Chinese e-commerce giant’s plan to bring one million small U.S. businesses onto its platform to sell to Chinese consumers over the next five years.

“This commitment is based on friendly China-U.S. cooperation and the rational and objective premise of bilateral trade,” Ma told Xinhua…The current situation has already destroyed the original premise. There is no way to deliver the promise.”

Understand thoroughly, Trump is an ignoranus incapable of leading trade or cultural relationships with another nation to progress and parity. He relies on reactionary advisors like Lighthizer and Navarro who wish to halt any and all mutual trade relations with China.
