The Trump administration gave less help to Puerto Rico than Houston
The media and the public noted the stark differences in the Trump administration's tone and urgency following hurricane Harvey, which ravaged Houston last summer, versus hurricane Maria, which Puerto Rico is still recovering from several months later. Now Politico's recent reporting reveals that the relief provided by the federal government was also imbalanced.
Flashback: Trump sent several more tweets following Hurricane Harvey and the situation in Texas than he did about Maria and Puerto Rico. It also took 13 days before Trump visited PR — while he visited Texas twice within 8 day of the hurricane striking.
