Schumer On ‘Face The Nation:’ Puerto Rico Relief Efforts ‘Slow Footed,’ ‘Not Adequate’

WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork/CBS News) — Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-New York) had strong words for President Donald Trump Sunday amid the ongoing crisis in Puerto Rico.

“The president, instead of tweeting against the mayor of San Juan, who’s watching her people die and just made a plea for help, ought to roll up his sleeves and get to work here,” Schumer said on CBS News’ “Face the Nation.” “The bottom line is at least for the first week and a half the effort has been slow-footed, disorganized, and not adequate.”


Schumer’s remarks followed Trump’s criticism of the mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulín Cruz, who has said the administration’s response was “killing us with the inefficiency.” The president tweeted Saturday that Cruz had “poor leadership ability.”

Schumer said the Puerto Rico response “needs the president to stop calling names, stop downgrading the motives of people who are calling for help.” Schumer called the response “not good” and urged the deployment of more military troops to the area.

Trump is set to arrive in the region on Tuesday to survey storm damage. Schumer said the president should have been on the ground much earlier.

“He should have gone to Puerto Rico earlier than two weeks. He’ll go Tuesday. That’s good. But two weeks after it hit. He was in Texas twice after that. Obama was up at Sandy two days afterwards. They say, ‘There are logistics that get in the way, but the president going makes a huge difference. And logistics didn’t get in the way in the past,” said Schumer.

As of this weekend – nearly two weeks after Puerto Rico was hit by Hurricane Mariasigns of progress were seen in San Juan.

Some buses are running weekend routes and engineers have cleared access to seven communication towers, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency says San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport can now handle 250 flights a day.

Millions across the island are also still without electricity, and residents are running low on food and water.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló visited ports in the U.S. territory on Saturday, where FEMA sent several shipments of badly needed supplies.

Meanwhile, Schumer said Sunday that Republican leadership’s efforts to provide tax reform through reconciliation “excludes Democrats” in the process.

“It’s the same process that led to the demise on health care. And let me just address one thing, John,” Schumer said, speaking to CBS News’ John Dickerson. “Speaker Ryan keeps saying it helps the middle class. That’s not true. What he’s saying and what the plan is are totally different.”

The Republicans’ plan, rolled out last week, aims to decrease the number of individual tax brackets from seven to three and lower taxes on businesses. However, it leaves many of the details — such as the income levels accompanying those tax levels — to the tax-writing committees in Congress.

Schumer noted that Democrats instead would like Republicans to consult their colleagues before rolling out a major tax plan.

He added, “They can’t just put down a plan and say, ‘Bipartisanship is you guys come over and do what we want,’ when it’s against our principles.”

Rob Kardashian Is Ready To Make A Comeback

Even though the chips have been down in his personal life for a while now, Rob Kardashian is reportedly ready to make a comeback following his very public breakup with Blac Chyna.

And that comeback includes a MASSIVE weight loss program, because he has gained back quite a bit of weight after his breakup with BC and ensuring deep depression.

Remember how Rob started to get healthy and in shape again when he was with Chyna, before their breakup?

Well, he’s ready to do that again, and REALLY push hard for it this time, because he’s got a new woman as motivation: Dream Kardashian.

According to TMZ, Rob has already hired a nutritionist, and he’s started working out again.

His goal is simple: get back tot he “old Rob,” and his means are pretty clear — he does NOT want to do it with his family or friends helping.

He’s going to have to work very, very hard at it, because reports say he’s gained back even more weight than he’d been carrying before all the BC breakup drama.

Planes, ships, barges: the DIY evacuation of Vanuatu’s volcano island

Eruption threat means all 11,000 people of Ambae in the Pacific need to leave – and with sparse official help, they are getting off any way they can

Vanuatu is no stranger to the rumblings, shakings, flood waters and wrecking winds of natural disaster. The south Pacific island nation was rated the most at-risk country in the world in a 2016 United Nations study. Its 83 islands are stuck right in the middle of hurricane alley and they dot the border of the “ring of fire” – a belt around the Pacific prone to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

Despite their precarious situation being a day-to-day reality, the country has been galvanised by the prime minister Charlot Salwai’s order to evacuate the entire island of Ambae because of the threat that the volcano at its centre will blow.

Donald Trump Continues To Prove He’s An Awful Leader — STILL Griping At Puerto Rico And Teasing North Korea

Talk about leading from behind.

Donald Trump completely under-cut his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, this morning by blowing back against a claim that Tillerson made earlier this week on American diplomats being in contact with North Korean officials to avoid nuclear war.

And in exactly two tweets, Trump betrayed his worldview on this issue: he’s ready for nuclear war.

Fuck, man.

Here’s what he said about North Korea (below):


Why would you go against your own Secretary of State like that — and why even HAVE him as your Secretary of State if you’re not going to listen to his ideas for, you know, avoiding global conflict and solving things through diplomatic means?!

What a bad leader!!!

But don’t worry — Trump didn’t just save his incompetence for North Korea. Here he is on Puerto Rico, STILL railing against people who have criticized him days after he first griped about it late this week (below):


Seriously. It’s shameful.

Will Trump defenders ever wake up?

Trump sure won’t. He’s old. He will not be different. Ever. This is who he is: a profoundly shitty person.

Equatorial water ice could provide more options for Mars colonists

The planet Mars as captured by the Hubble Space Telescope in 1997. The Medusae Fossae Formation ...

An international team of scientists has discovered evidence of water ice around the equator of Mars – a region in which it was believed the vital resource would be unable to survive. The ability to mine and process ice deposits could make future manned exploration of the Red Planet much easier, as it can be used for drinking water, and even as an element in the manufacturing of rocket fuel.
