Trump's credibility not standing up well to national tragedies — Witcover

A flight from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport to Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico - and back - would take roughly 7.5 hours. Puerto Rico's debts, they wrote, "must be canceled and reduced to sustainable" payments. These guidelines include services to make sure students get proper immunizations and check-ups and setting up extra support systems within the school, such as counseling. In its 2016 report, "Failure to Act: Closing the Infrastructure Investment Gap for America's Economic Future", the American Society of Civil Engineers argue that 10 key sectors of infrastructure are currently inadequate to meet our needs, let alone to address the increasing demands of a growing society.

Massachusetts superintendents have been talking with state officials to see if any financial assistance will be available for those who may have an influx of children - some of whom do not speak English and may need extra help because they have been traumatized by the devastation the hurricane brought. This is Edwin Acosta.

For us Puerto Ricans it was clear. So it was just a disconnect.

Relief efforts are concentrated in San Juan, and it's here where progress is most evident. Walking table to table, the vice president met Everlinda Burgos, who had arrived earlier in the day from her home in Naranjito. Now my neighbors and I arrange car pools with one another since gasoline is so scarce. Residents of storm-wracked, independent, and broke Caribbean islands like Dominica and Antigua-Barbuda are still more desperate, seeking shelter from relatives abroad. With no electricity, people with mobility issues have become prisoners in steaming hot high-rises.

In his comments to Fox News' Geraldo Rivera, Trump said that Puerto Rico owes "a lot of money to your friends on Wall Street".

The governor said almost half - 47 percent - of residents have running water and that should climb to 60 percent by the end of the week.
