Pallets of water, bedding, food, medical supplies and other necessities sat wrapped in plastic and unused in a warehouse for more than two years while Puerto Ricans suffered through the aftermath of a devastating hurricane and, recently, an earthquake. Now their discovery has triggered a political firestorm, Fox News reports.

Democrats have hammered President Trump for ignoring Peuerto Rico but this is just another example that the Dems are full of crap.

Trump was right- the Puerto Rican government is corrupt as all hell.

On Sunday, Puerto Rico Gov. Wanda Vázquez fired two more officials in the most recent development since anger broke out over a viral video showing unused emergency supplies – allegedly left-over aid from Hurricane Maria – sitting in a warehouse in the southern coastal city of Ponce.

The firings come after a Facebook video showed residents taking supplies from the warehouse.

The video shows residents opening a door to a large warehouse full of water bottles and baby food, among other necessities, that had been there since Maria slammed into the island in 2017, killing more than 2,000 people and injuring several hundreds more, The Daily Caller News Foundation reports.

President Donald Trump lifted a hold on more than $8 billion in disaster aid funding to help victims of Maria, according to a Jan. 15 Politico report.

Carlos Acevedo, director of Puerto Rico’s Office of Emergency Management, was one of the officials who was pushed out. He denied allegations of mishandling, according to a Sunday statement the office of emergency management published.

“There have not been orders to seize or destroy those items at any point,” Acevedo said in a statement. Vázquez’s decision comes months after Trump criticized the American territory, calling Puerto Rico “one of the most corrupt places on earth” in an August tweet in 2019.

Puerto Rico is struggling to get out from underneath crippling debt and filed for bankruptcy in 2017. Many 2020 presidential Democratic candidates have gone after Trump for his attitude towards Puerto Rico, particularly bringing up the president’s initial reluctance to help the island with aid.

Vázquez’s decision to fire the three officials comes as Puerto Rico is trying to recoup after a massive earthquake hit Puerto Rico Saturday, causing a tsunami warning, officials on the island reported.

Putting lives in danger in order to fabricate a scandal around the president. This is outrage needs to be severely punished. When people’s lives are at risk partisan politics ends.
