Gutierrez Blames Trump For Puerto Rico Deaths

in Important Issues

Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) spoke about President Trump calling his administrations response to Hurricane Maria a “success.”

Gutierrez stated, “It might be, although I’m sure that there are others that will compete, one of his biggest fabrications and lies. How do you celebrate and declare a success when officially now the deaths are over 3,000? And, you know, that’s the latest study. One accepted by the government of Puerto rRico that never wanted to change the numbers and was complicit with this president in trying to hide the real calamity and deaths and the lack of action of the American government. But let me say this; the Harvard study said it was over 4,000. I was there within ten days. I was there within ten days, not because the government allowed me to go facilitate it, because Donald Trump did everything he could to stop any oversight, over the conduct of the American government, and what it was doing to facilitate.”

“I think the mayor of San Juan was absolutely correct, you let people die. And, you know, if you think a success is having the deaths of people on your hands. I think it’s important to put it into context. He said two things. He said, ‘well, you know, the people of Puerto Rico would be better off, but they want us to do everything for them.’ So he called us lazy. And then he said, ‘wow, you’re busting my budget.’”

“This is a president of the United States with a catastrophic situation in Puerto Rico, unprecedented in Puerto Rico with thousands of people dying and saying how expensive and how lazy we are. The only one who was lazy was you, Mr. President. You were lazy, and you weren’t on duty and people died because of it.”

    What a fool Democrat congressman! Everyone already knows the San Juan mayor screwed their people up by totally interfering with delivery of life saving supplies and food to get political sway. What a SOB. I’m surprised the Puerto Ricans haven’t decided to have a public execution for such a sick POS!

    The supplies sent to Puerto Rico were commandeered by the croup mayor for distribution to her friends and family and the rest were sold on the black market. Supplies that did not sale are still being found such as rotting food and pallets of bottled water. Bottom line they did not want the supplies, they wanted the money.

    The revised 3000 death count was NOT based based on a body count but a computer projection/simulation, so more lies from the left.

  • Clayton

    after the first 100 they died because of the power grid being down and the corrupt kiss Killary ass mayor of San Juan that held on to the supplies trying to make Trump look bad and back fired when she had her pic taken in a warehouse full of supplies
