Donald Trump has spent another weekend at a golf club while the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico pleaded for clean water in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

But people did not buy that anyone should thank him for the relief efforts in Puerto Rico, given that he was vacationing at a golf resort while community members and aid organizations were scrambling to save lives. Project Loon obtained consent agreements to use land mobile radio (LMR) radio spectrum in the 900 MHz band from existing carriers operating within Puerto Rico. "NYPA technicians are very familiar with PREPA'S electric system, as it is similar to NY state's system, so I'm confident that our expertise will be of significant value on the ground as we continue to coordinate with federal and local partners to repower Puerto Rico". In response to concerns Kaine expressed during the visit about the relatively small size of the aid package the Trump Administration has proposed for Puerto Rico, compared to previous relief packages following Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, DHS officials in Puerto Rico assured Kaine that the recently announced aid request is just designed as an initial step until the island's long-term rebuilding needs can be assessed. Google parent company Alphabet has proposed launching balloons over the island to bring Wi-Fi service to hard-to-reach places, as it has in other parts of the world. "They also lack satellite and cell communication", said Kaine.

In a joint effort with other senators, including U.S. Sen. "We need to make sure that it is spent the right way, we have to prioritize the spending in ways that will address the issues of most need". He claimed that the people of Puerto Rico also had "fun" during his visit.

"There has been great collaboration with the [Department of Defense], with the federal government, with the state governments", Rossello said on MSNBC Monday. "[Puerto Rico's Medicaid program] is headed toward a collapse", Edwin Park, vice president for health policy at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, told the publication. The store serves as a collection site for items to help Puerto Ricans. "While the full scope of the devastation is not yet known, one thing is for certain - with quick and decisive action granted through the authorities in the DPA, the potential devastation on Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands may be mitigated". "They're hanging in there, but they need help".
