WATCH: Curt Schilling Drops Truth Bomb, Confirms Trump Sent All Aid Possible to Puerto Rico

Baseball legend Curt Schilling found himself in Puerto Rico, stating that President Trump and his team have been doing everything they can to help out victims affected by the hurricane aftermath. However, what is happening on site is disturbing, as the aid is not being distributed accordingly.

The media have, naturally, sided against the President, informing the crowd the White House has been lazy in providing help in the region.

“I have talked to politicians in both states (Texas and Florida) and the governor of Puerto Rico,” Schilling told Fox News (see video).  “All have said … that the president did everything in a pace they’ve never seen before, as far as him releasing money and releasing assets. But the execution on the ground has been horrifying.”

Aside from Schilling, Richard Rossello, the governor of Puerto Rico, also gave Trump the thumbs up as far as offering help is concerned.

“The president and the administration, every time we’ve asked them to execute, they’ve executed quickly,” Rossello told Fox Business. “The administration has responded to our petitions. FEMA and [FEMA director] Brock Long have been on the phone virtually all the time with me, checking out how things are going.”

The liberal crowd loved to bash the POTUS, reporting he has done nothing so far to aid Puerto Rico, while tons of food, water, and medical supplies were sent off to the country as an immediate form of response.

Still, many, including Trump and  Senator Marco Rubio stated the problem was found on the ground in Puerto Rico, where the distribution faced an obstacle.

So far, more than  10,000 containers packed with food, water, and other supplies found themselves trapped on the dock of San Juan since the country doesn’t have enough truck drivers to distribute the means across the island.

Puerto Roc’s overall instability as a country caused for this to happen, while its weak structure was a direct culprit for the massive consequences the island faced after Hurricane Maria hit. That is exactly why Puerto Rico suffered way more than, let’s say, Texas, a state that has solid infrastructure as a comparison.

Back in June 2017, Puerto Rico had a vote, wanting to become the 51st state of the United States of America, so it can mainly receive governmental aid if needed. Puerto Rico has remained a U.S. territory ever since.

At the moment, Puerto Rico is facing a $70 billion debt, although the population amounts to only 3.4 million. Take a look at the charts below and see it for yourselves:

As of May 2017, Puerto Rico got itself into a the greatest municipal bankruptcy ever recorded in U.S. history. The money’s whereabouts are still uncertain.

Curt Schilling, however, felt the need to report things for what they are, noting the government has been covering every step of the agenda so far. The fact management was not as effective, is out of Trump’s power.

“Everybody is afraid somebody will get blamed,” Schilling said. “And that is causing these hang-ups.”

Despite this, people from the left side of politics enjoy trashing Trump, calling him ineloquent and unable to handle a crisis of this sort.

Aside from Puerto Rico, Trump was quite useful and handy in the Florida and Texas hurricane aftermath as well. Obama was not even close to helping in cases of natural disasters back when he was in charge like Trump did now.

Now, Twitter users are beginning to ask themselves, what happened to the federal funding in the country?

It is a fair point to come across, if we have in mind that trump already took most of the guilt, without being initially responsible for the chaos on the island.
