Trump's Irma Minimized Bush's Katrina

The Trump administration has been criticized for having a slow and tone-deaf response to the devastation in Puerto Rico from hurricane Maria
Acting Homeland Security secretary Elaine Duke said she is satisfied with Puerto Rico's Hurricane relief. As you watch the following video make special note her comments were delivered just outside the White House and probably after a lie fill strategy session with you know who. You will also notice duke seems to seek assurances from the man standing to her left.

For point of clarity Duke literally stated Hurricane relief on the devastated island is a "good news story."

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz responded to the White House "good story" lie.

Puerto Rico's recovery is "not a good news story."

"This is a 'people are dying' story," she said in disbelief.

From Trump's "good news story" to his personal dip into the "swamp."
The Mayor heads into her ravaged and flooded city to outreach to people who may need special assistance or need to evacuate their residence.

Trump responded to the Mayor's plea ("begging") for help in classic Trump, via the insensitive and uncaring Twitter.

...Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help. They....

...want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort. 10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job.

The military and first responders, despite no electric, roads, phones etc., have done an amazing job. Puerto Rico was totally destroyed.
Did you notice Trump's use of the common and ever-present conservative dog whistle: ...want everything to be done for them...

How are those words any different than conservatives, especially conservative politicians spewing: "They want us to give them stuff?"

If you have a few more minutes, consider watching a segment from Fox News and its resident Trump apologist and Neo-conservative, Geraldo Rivera, but heads with the San Juan Mayor over her outspoken comments regarding the Trump's lack of emergency attention and subsequent response.  What you about to see and hear has been edited and produced for an audience which predominately supports Trump? So, recognize the reporting slant despite the mayor's irrefutably effective retort to Rivera's efforts to fed Fox viewers malarkey regarding dying Americans.

Let's end with this...Notice the year of the Tweet.
