Trump’s Neglect Just Forced Puerto Ricans To Drink Water From Toxic Waste Sites
After giving himself an A+ on his pathetic response to Hurricane Maria’s total devastation of Puerto Rico, Donald Trump left the island to fend for itself.
His extreme negligence has resulted in a climbing death count, at least 90% of the island without power, more than 2 million people in need of food, and more than half the country without drinking water.
Some Puerto Ricans are so desperate for water, that they have taken to retrieving water from EPA “Superfund” or toxic waste sites.

CBS News correspondent, David Begnaud, tweeted out an EPA press release this afternoon announcing reports that Puerto Ricans have been “obtaining, or trying to obtain drinking water from wells at hazardous waste ‘Superfund’ sites…”
As the number of dead grows and the drinking water that supports life dwindles, this president’s criminal negligence does indeed look more and more like genocide by indifference.
