Lin-Manuel Miranda to Trump: ‘We still need your help’ in Puerto Rico

Lin-Manuel Miranda wants President Trump to make up for a “lost weekend” delaying disaster relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

The “Hamilton” playwright and actor headlined the Unity March for Puerto Rico in Washington, D.C., on Sunday. Miranda told The Hill in an interview the rally’s core message to Trump is, “we still need your help.”

“The message is that we’re here and Puerto Rico is still — half of the island is still without power — and we still need your help,” Miranda said, directing his message to Trump.

Miranda, whose parents are Puerto Rican, has been sharply critical of the Trump administration’s disaster response.

    Let’s have a tally of how many of these well off Puerto Rico actors, businesspersons, singers, etc etc. have contributed to help their fellow countrymen/women/children.
    If they are adamant about the government helping them out, be the first to show the government how much “you” (the aforementioned) have given to those in need.
    I dare any one of them to post how they have helped Puerto Rico besides complaining about it.

    We The REAL people of America roll up our sleeves and get to work getting something done, you should try that instead of “begging” for more Free stuff. Grow the hell up and help yourselves. Damn man.

      Look at how much money is being given to Houston vs Puerto Rico. In case you didn’t understand this, the people of Puerto Rico are real Americans to and they are doing what they can with what little they have. Much of the problems with Puerto Rico is because of their economy. There are a number of federal regulations that hurt their economy badly. Our President went there and made some promise, now is the time for him to stand behind them.

          So tell me. People build houses in flood plains and they keep getting washed away and the tax payers keep giving them money to rebuild.
