Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera, who has been in Puerto Rico for more than a week, contradicted the media lies that Trumps administration has failed to effetely respond to the crisis after Hurricanes Irma and Maria.“Whatever you read in the so-called fake news … I think the president and the first lady were amazingly gracious and graciously receiving by the grateful Puerto Rican people,” Rivera reported.
Rivera then showed the interview he did with President Trump while he was in Puerto Rico.
“They’re special people,” Trump stated. “I love the Puerto Rican people.”
Trump acknowledged that the situation was “very tough,” but the federal response is strong.
“I say we got an A+ in Texas, we got an A+ in Florida, and we may have done our best work here, but it hasn’t been appreciated,” he continued, talking about San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz.
Rivera then asked Trump “How do you feel? You’ve been blamed for everything from kids dying to a cholera epidemic that didn’t exist?”
“She was very, very nice at the beginning,” Trump responded, “and all of the sudden I noticed she went a little bit on the nasty side, and I said, ‘I guess she’s running for office.’ And it turns out I was right. Isn’t that a shock?”
Rivera also confronted Cruz asking, “Are people dying? I’ve been traveling around, and I don’t see people dying.”
“Dying is a continuum, right?” she said, talking about how many people don’t have access to medical care and food or clean water.
Paul Krugman, a New York Times writer, falsely wrote on Twitter that there was a cholera outbreak on the island. Cholera is a disease spread by bacteria in the dirty water.
His post was retweeted more than 14,000 times.
The Centers for Disease Control discredited his claim forcing Krugman to correct his false report.
Rivera appeared on Hannity on Tuesday, saying Trump administration is actually doing very well working in those circumstances.And about the 34 deaths, Rivera said, “Blame Hurricane Maria for those deaths. Don’t blame President Trump.
