Puerto Rico relief efforts boosted following recent controversy

As of September 30th, the Department of Defense is expanding relief efforts and the presence of emergency response personnel in Puerto Rico. This follows public outrage directed towards President Trump, who some believe is not doing enough to help the storm-stricken island.

The President recently engaged in a twitter feud aimed at San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, leading some to question his leadership ability.

In spite of Trump’s controversial remarks, Mayor Yulin Cruz insists on focusing on uniting to ameliorate relief efforts across Puerto Rico.

Although the federal government’s efforts to help Puerto Rico recover have been criticized, it seems as if both the Puerto Rican government and Federal authorities are committed to cooperating and remedying the issue at hand.
