"Amid Puerto Rico's disaster, a disconnect ... How Trump's time at his golf club hurt the response to Maria," atop WashPost front page:

  • "[A]s storm-ravaged Puerto Rico struggled for food and water amid the darkness of power outages[,] Trump and his top aides effectively went dark themselves."
  • "Trump jetted to New Jersey that Thursday night [9 days ago] to spend a long weekend at his private golf club there, save for a quick trip to Alabama for a political rally. Neither Trump nor any of his senior White House aides said a word publicly about the unfolding crisis."
