In an interview on ABC‘s “This Week” Sunday, Long refused to even acknowledge criticism of his agency’s sluggish response to Hurricane Maria, saying that the Trump administration has “filtered out” the San Juan mayor.
Long went on to insist that—despite abundant evidence to the contrary—the Puerto Rico recovery is progressing thanks to the Trump administration’s efforts.
During his trip to Puerto Rico last week, Trump complained that the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria has “thrown our budget a little out of whack.” He also said Puerto Rico’s crisis is not a “real catastrophe like Katrina.”
As Cruz and others desperately plead for help in the midst of Puerto Rico’s humanitarian emergency, Trump is at his golf club in Virginia—the 70th day he has spent at a golf course during his presidency.
