Al Sharpton: Trump Needs to Make Immediate FEMA Funding Available

‘He needs to come in with a proactive agenda rather than a makeup for the debacle he did the other day’

EXCERPT:

SHARPTON: "Certainly, there is a disproportionate impact because they are in areas that are harder to redevelop and dealing with how you are going to finance, refinance, insurance issues, all of that has a disproportionate impact. But I would hope that the President and this administration heeds the request of this mayor with an immediate relief not based on some refundable situation in the future. There is immediate need there. We all talked about how insensitive it was for him not to mention the victims in his first trip. Tomorrow should not be to remake or redo what he didn’t do the first trip. Tomorrow he ought to say, 'We’re making immediate funding available, we’re going to put FEMA people on the street to handle debris.' He needs to come in with a proactive agenda rather than a makeup for the debacle he did the other day."
