Thousands died because Trump was derelict in his duty.



And his actions since Hurricane Maria struck show him to be criminally negligent.

President Trump personally jumped in during budget negotiations to cut the amount of Medicaid funding for Puerto Rico, according to a Politico report.

Congressional negotiators unveiled a budget deal earlier this week allocating $5.7 billion over two years to fund public health insurance on the island, instead of $12 billion over four years.

But three sources told the outlet that Trump didn't back the deal because he believed it was too much and wanted to reduce the total amount.

The island's economy has been in recession for over a decade and its Medicaid program has faced drastic cuts, NPR reported.

PS: Thank you for caring about Puerto Rico. I was born there — and my family, unlike Trump’s, traces our roots to Boston before the Revolution. Proud to say we have fought for America’s independence and in every war since then to keep our freedom.

That's a wonderful family history! Thank you for that. I do care about Puerto Rico.. it's horrible what's happening to them.. I can't wait for a Democratic President.. and I care about what the horror show is doing to HUD, too.. with that corrupt ben carson breaking the law to screw Puerto Rico and anything else they can think of.

So appreciate that the Democratic House is dealing with trump's "criminal behavior". Thinking he's above the law is what got him Impeached.

Our House can't devote enough resources to halt all of the lawlessness in the Executive branch, but they're certainly putting forth heroic efforts!
