White House not preoccupied with Trump, says press secretary

White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked at the briefing on Monday whether former President Trump’s ban from Twitter makes it easier for President Biden to negotiate a Covid-19 relief package with Congress. ’We don’t spend a lot of time talking about or thinking about president Trump here,’ Psaki said, adding, ’But I can’t say we miss him on Twitter.’

I remember this story very well as it unfolded. I remember the death count constantly being adjusted to include people that died well after the storm passed for stepping in puddles of electrified water, roofers falling off of structures, or elderly people with no access to medicine. The hurricane struck the island in 2017 and it wasn't until August next year that the "final" count was released to be roughly 3,000 people. I have been through many hurricanes in my life, there is no reason to add to the count well over a year later. The method for collecting a tally was little more than a guessing game, https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00442-0 I also remember reading about the warehouse full of supplies that never reached the public. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino/puerto-rico-residents-outraged-after-discovering-warehouse-full-unused-aid-n1118501 I also remember the mayor wearing shirts with words on them to take shots at Trump. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/09/30/mayor-puerto-ricos-capital-city-wears-t-shirt-saying-help-us/ So inflated death tolls for unrelated loss of life, warehouses full of supplies, and a politically active mayor more interested in selling shirts then helping her people. Yeah, you can shove it with this "Trump blocked muh funding" nonsense, I remember this whole story very well. Political grandstanding and Orange Man Bad at its finest.

The PR hurricane was in 2017 and so far they have gotten $20 billion of the $60 billion that was allocated. Best guess is the rest of the money hasn't been sent due to possible corruption. But Dem's actually seem to prefer these kinds of griftable situations. Just look at where the money from the Clinton Foundation went in Haiti (spoiler, it didn't go to the Haitian people). So sure give them the rest of the money (we're printing it out of thin air these days), but make sure there is full accountability for where it goes. If Hunter takes a trip to PR, you can pretty much rest assured he's going to be getting a new "business" contract (because he is so smart and good at business).

Huh what’s up with News Voice? Wasn’t the topic here on Biden releasing the relief package Trump didn’t release during the 2017 hurricane in Puerto Rico because of corruption in the province that was hit by the storm? Why is it now on the WH’s saying they arent preoccupied with Trump?

One day, this will all blow up in their faces. People see their lies, their corruption, and their double standards, and it will not last.

Hey Robert you can say the same for every hurricane that occurred in the U.S Some people die of different causes but the deaths were a result of hurricanes.

The only thing that makes this story newsworthy is the fact that it's the only question she didn't have to "ummm...I'll have to circle back around to you about that". (The story being the one about the White House commenting on Trump being banned from Twitter, not the hurricane story)

None of these comments have anything to do with Jen responding to Trump's twitter ban...
