Donald Trump awards himself 10 out of 10 for Puerto Rico hurricane response
- Hundreds of thousands without running water and electricity
- ‘Did we do a great job?’ Trump asks Puerto Rico governor at White House
Donald Trump gave his administration’s response to the damage wrought on Puerto Rico by Hurricane Maria a 10 out of 10 during a meeting with the governor of the devastated US territory.
Nearly a month after Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico, conditions remain dire: hundreds of thousands of Americans are still without running water. More than 80% of electricity consumers remain without power. A majority of cellphone towers remained knocked down and only a small percentage of the roads have been reopened.
