Trump OMB blocked Puerto Rico from receiving hurricane aid: Probe

A HUD report made public Thursday has concluded that the administration of former President Trump obstructed a probe looking into why officials withheld about $20B in hurricane relief for Puerto Rico following the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Maria. The report also found that tensions between the HUD and OMB resulted in unprecedented procedural hurdles.

Many say Trump did this. Only one article clarifies "Trump officials". People: why should I believe Orange Man Bad when you lied about some of the most absurd stuff around him? I'm not saying he doesn't deserve criticism, but by the time 2020 hit, I was done with the games and assumed everything negative on him was a lie because everything I researched always was and that's because you could never seem to criticize him on anything that made sense. Weakest Impeachment attempt in our history and people still think he's going to jail, for one.

People died and suffered because Trump wanted to play silly political games. I assume that they did not praised him enough so that he blocked federal money.

The people of Puerto Rico got screwed by their own government who failed/refused to distribute the aid that was sent to them. Does no one remember the warehouse full of aid that was left to rot? Does no one remember the interview begging for more with stacks of crates (that supposedly never got delivered) in the background? I’m all for the US government taking responsibility for their failures, but the Puerto Rican government also needs to take responsibility for theirs.

Well I know nothing about this but I'd say Puerto Rico wants to be a state really bad but they are not and don't pay any income tax. So why would they deserve 20 BILLION dollars in aid?

This story is nothing more than the tabloids making a concerted effort to make the case for Puerto Rico statehood. The tabloids are the propaganda wing of the democrat party, plain and simple.

Communists in government, the bureaucracy, engage in activities to sabotage President's policies, orders and directives to embarrass the President and make political scandals for the democrat Communist propaganda mills. I don't blame patriots for crimes committed by Democrats. And neither should you.
