Rivera Refutes ‘Fake News’ Stories About Trump Admin’s Response To Puerto Rico

“Whatever you read in the so-called fake news … I think the president and the first lady were …”

Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera, who has been on the ground in Puerto Rico for over a week, refuted media reports that the Trump administration has failed to adequately respond on the island following 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 said on Fox News on Wednesday.

The correspondent then aired his interview with President Donald Trump from Puerto Rico from the day before.

“They’re special people,” Trump said. “I love the Puerto Rican people.”

Trump admitted it was a “very tough” situation, but the federal response was 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 added, likely referring to members of the media and probably San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz both of whom he had tweeted about over the weekend.

Rivera picked up on the reference, noting that Cruz, who is a likely Democrat candidate for governor in 2020, noticeably did not applaud when Trump came to the island to meet with local officials.

“How do you feel? You’ve been blamed for everything from kids dying to a cholera epidemic that didn’t exist?” Rivera asked the president.

“She was very, very nice at the beginning,” Trump replied, “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?”

Many media outlets seized on Cruz’s claim on CNN late last week that Puerto Rico is a “people are dying” story.

Rivera confronted Cruz on Sunday, asking, “Are people dying? I’ve been traveling around, and I don’t see people dying.”

“Dying is a continuum, right?” the mayor replied, explaining some people are not getting adequate amounts of food and clean water and medical care, and therefore are in the midst of dying.

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman wrongly claimed via Twitter on Saturday that there had been a cholera outbreak on the island. Cholera is spread by bacteria in dirty water.

The tweet was shared over 14,000 times.

The Centers for Disease Control countered Krugman’s claim that same day, apparently prompting the columnist to partially walk back his assertion shortly thereafter.

Appearing on Hannity on Tuesday night, Rivera said the Trump administration is doing good work under difficult circumstances.

Regarding the 34 dead from the storm, Rivera said, “Blame Hurricane Maria for those deaths. Don’t blame President Trump.”

Puerto Rican Cop Just Called Radio Station To Leak Something That’ll DESTROY San Juan Mayor

This story is breaking across the news desk. A very emotional female police officer from Puerto Rico’s police department in Guaynabo called into a US Spanish radio station to give people the real scoop about what is happening in Puerto Rico.

 

The call was recorded on September 28th. It shows the corruption within the Puerto Rican Government and the Municipal authority of San Juan especially. Watch the video below:

 

Oh just so you know… The video is not an English. Subtitles have been included in the video and a transcript of the call in English is below.

 

 

Before reading the transcript. We need to get this video out there everywhere. This totally kills the mainstream media’s narrative in Puerto Rico. Hit that share button now.

 

English Transcript:

 

Radio Announcer: What is your name?

 

Police Caller: I cannot give my name because I work for Puerto Rico’s Police Department. I need to pass this information out because the stuff that is being brought from the U.S. is not being distributed.  They are not allowing the Puerto Rican people to receive the donations.

 

Radio Announcer: What part of Puerto Rico are you calling us from right now?

 

Police Caller: I am right now in Guaynabo.

 

Radio Announcer 2: Wow.

 

Radio Announcer 3: But what information do you have? What have you seen?

 

Police Caller: The Mayor, Carmen Yulin, is not allowing anyone to distribute… We need… what Puerto Ricans need is that the U.S. armed forces come in and distribute the aid. And that they stop the governor, Rosello, and the mayor, Yulin, on doing what they are doing… It’s an abuse, it looks like communism, in our own island (sobbing)… (sobbing continues, inaudible translation due to cries)…

 

Police Caller (cont.): People are helping us, but they are not accepting it, they are not accepting anymore help supposedly: “they have to wait for the license, that there are no buses.” …Let me tell you something Boricuas (Puerto Ricans) are dying of hunger (crying continues) … This is a bureaucracy, everything has to be protocol, the lines are stretched. …We can only give one box of water per person (sobbing continues).  …The medics here, people are dying, the hospitals are in crisis.

 

Police Caller (cont.): I am embarrassed, as a Boricua to work for Puerto Rico’s police and see that we cannot do anything.  There are dozens and thousands and thousands of food and when people ask we cannot give anything away because [Mayor] Carmen Yulin says that we cannot take anything out; because everything is a soap opera, everything is a show and there have to be cameras here and there.  ….Because you know they are just looking for votes for the upcoming years.

 

Radio Announcer 2: Wow

 

Police Caller: And the governor won’t move unless there is a camera behind him; [Mayor] Carmen Yulin won’t move unless there is a camera behind her.  This is how we are living in Puerto Rico, meanwhile artists are giving money and the people of Florida are sending stuff, and I don’t know how many more people are helping because we have very limited communication, very limited, and we have no idea what’s going on outside; and the people who are sending stuff, they have to come in; they have to come to help Puerto Rico and distribute what is being wasted …because what else are we going to do?  You tell me, what are we going to do?

 

Radio Announcer #2: Of course the desperation.

 

Radio Announcer #3: We are with our hearts broken listening to you describing this situation which is heartbreaking when we know that so many people are helping …this is a police officer speaking.

 

Police Caller: I’ve been for one hour and a half just trying to download an application because the phones that they give to us I cannot use them as a police officer due to security measures.  But I need to speak for the people because the people are suffering.  Because I, as a cop, and other partners are seeing it.   A lot of people have been posting videos (sobbing – inaudible)  …and no-one is paying attention.

 

Radio Announcer #3: We are truly sorry for this situation, we did not know that..

 

Police Caller:  If Cuba and Venezuela want to help and we are grateful for that; and that the government denies their help, the government denies Cuba’s help. …That they reject Venezuela’s help, …Look for God’s sake!  Tell me how is that possible, we need help.

 

Radio Announcer #3: We are going to send this message out so that it gets to where it needs to get to…

 

Police Caller:  We want the U.S. to come in, that the strongest forces come in and take the governor out, he is not doing anything, he is just going around and around, …and everyone is like: “oh, look how nice, the governor, he is going in the mud, he is going in the water”, And where is it?  Pardon the expression: WHERE IS THE FOOD?

 

Police Caller (cont.):  Look, grab the food, grab the sausage can and take it to the families! Stop the show! The governor is just doing a show, is all a show.  There are many mayors that are suffering because they cannot do anything for their people.

 

Radio Announcer #2: What are they doing with the food? Is it being kept in storage because they are not allowing to give it out?

 

Police Caller: They are not doing anything, and they tell the harbors (ports) that they cannot bring stuff anymore.  If the U.S. government doesn’t get involved they will finish us.  We are going to end up worse.  …Worse than Cuba, Africa, or worse than Haiti.  We are living in an era that you don’t want to see, people are desperate.  The gasoline, people are already killing each other. Not to rob you, they are doing it so they can be the firsts to get food and take it to their families.

 

Police Caller (cont.): Do you know what it is when a woman approaches me and tells me “I don’t have any more.” “I don’t know what else to give my kids because I don’t have anymore.” “Water and crackers”!

 

Radio Announcer #1: Sweetie, thank you for calling us and using this medium to denounce this situation; and good thing that it was you who explained this so that people don’t think that we are making up stuff; because this has nothing to do with politics. This is a very serious situation.

 

Police Caller: Very Serious (sobbing continues)

 

This video needs to get out to all of America. Keep fighting Puerto Ricans. We are praying for you.
