When asked why he had announced the plans 46 days before an election, and not in
the aftermath of the devastating storm three years ago, Trump blamed Democrats
and said, "We've been working on it for a long time."

Puerto Rico is being promised nearly $13 billion in federal disaster funding to
repair its electrical and education infrastructure three years after Hurricane
Maria's devastation and six weeks before the presidential election.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency plans to award two separate grants to
help rebuild Puerto Rico's electrical grid system and educational facilities,
the White House announced on Friday.

"Today's grant announcements represent some of the largest awards in FEMA's
history for any single disaster recovery event and demonstrate the Federal
Government's continuing commitment to help rebuild the territory and support the
citizens of Puerto Rico and their recovery goals," read the White House
statement.

Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico as a Category 4 storm in September 2017,
killing at least 3,000 residents and essentially destroying an electrical system
that was unreliable to begin with. Parts of the island remained without power
for almost a year.

'Oh, shit! They can come to Florida and vote? Why didn't they
tell me that?'

Bullshit, Donnie Two-Scoops. It's a blatant ploy to try to buy votes,
and only Trump-humping morons can't see it.

He played yet another round of golf today...if he missed more than the usual
number of putts, he might get pissed off and take a couple of billion back...
