    Trump: Puerto Rico 'an island surrounded by water,' recovery will be slow


    The mayor of a Puerto Rican city that sits next to San Juan praised the administration's help Saturday night, and chided the "politics" of San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, who has been criticizing President Trump.

    In an interview with Secrets, Guaynabo Mayor Angel Perez Otero said that in several meetings with FEMA and U.S. military officials about the recovery effort, Yulin Cruz has been absent. "I've seen other mayors participating. She's not," said Perez Otero.

    Esta comunidad se unió y limpió sus calles. Los felicito y reconozco. Mira el video https://www.facebook.com/angelperezoterooficial/videos/798988116947016/ …

    Despite days of praise for the government's effort from Puerto Rico's governor, Yulin Cruz has become the new face of the island in the media with her sharp criticism of the administration's efforts.

    Asked if he has seen similar shortfalls and non-communication from the administration, Perez Otero said "that's not been my experience." He added, "There is a lot of politics in Puerto Rico."

    Perez Otero added that the San Juan mayor "is my friend." His municipality sits just west of San Juan. Together, they make up most of the San Juan metropolitan area.

    Perez Otero said that he has been in constant contact with military, FEMA and White House officials and has been promised that "they won't leave until Puerto Rico is good." He added that a top Trump aide quoted the president saying that the aid so far "is not enough. There is going to be more."




    He noted that the country was in a financial crisis before Hurricane Maria hit and that it needs financial help from Washington.

    But he said that recovery aid is pouring in. "We are receiving a lot of help from FEMA and the Red Cross...there is lots of help coming to us," said Perez Otero.

    He is keen on receiving water and blue tarps for homeowners to use for shelter. Two hours before Secrets talked to him he said a top FEMA official promised that the tarps would arrive in "a few days."

    And why is that the case? At least he is showing appreciation for our help at this time.
    These storms will only get more severe in the future. You just can't rebuild w/o having that in mind and using new modalities to protect.
