Maddow: Trump’s Response to Puerto Rico Is a ‘Man-Made Disaster’

‘The president for Puerto Rico is Donald Trump’

FALLON: "I mean there's something like 9,000 shipping containers full of food, and water, and medical supplies sitting in the port of San Juan, and nobody's organized an effort to get that stuff out of the port, and on to the streets, and into the communities that need it. So it's not that there hasn't been a response. It's just been a bad, inept, poorly run, inattentive response with no political leadership, and a president who doesn't appear to care about it, and that is a man-made disaster. Yeah, this was a storm, but the response is a politically-led catastrophe by a president who really doesn't seem to care, and that -- I mean, Puerto Rico -- Puerto Rico doesn't have another president, right, who's going to fix this. The president for Puerto Rico is Donald Trump. He's all they've got to lead this."
