Trump: Stop Ignoring the Crisis in Puerto Rico

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Send necessary aid to the island territory of Puerto Rico to help with recovery following Hurricane Maria.

Following the strongest storm to hit an American territory in over 80 years, the island of Puerto Rico is suffering terribly in the wake of Hurricane Maria. With over 95 percent of the island without power or access to working phone lines, many are wondering when help from the U.S. government will arrive to bring necessary assistance.

Meanwhile, President Trump has spent the days following the hurricane’s deadly landfall tweeting about NFL players “disrespecting the flag” by refusing to stand during the national anthem and his disappointment regarding failed attempts to repeal ObamaCare, yet has remained conspicuously silent about the devastation occurring on American soil. He has not spoken publicly, and Puerto Rican officials say that aid is coming far too slowly to help the 3.4 million left without electricity or other basic resources.

The people of Puerto Rico are American citizens who deserve a swift response from their government to aid them in their struggle to recover and rebuild following this natural disaster. Sign below to demand that Trump commit all necessary resources immediately and show his support for the people of Puerto Rico.


Dear President Trump,

Puerto Rico has been devastated in the wake of Hurricane Maria. Over three million American citizens are without power, and basic resources like food and cash are becoming more and more scarce. The residents of this island are counting on you to send necessary financial aid and boots-on-the-ground support to help them in their efforts to recover and rebuild.

You must show your public support for the people of Puerto Rico and turn your attention to the suffering of your fellow American citizens. I urge you to immediately acknowledge the humanitarian crisis that is unfolding on U.S. soil and to send all available resources to help the citizens of this territory get back on their feet before more lives are lost.

  1. Gen Lovyet Agustsson says:

    stop loosing lives.

  2. I am so tired of this president not being able to focus on what matters. Someone please put him on medication to help him focus or put a muzzle on him. His mouth and fingers are a huge issue to everyone.

    • Robert Ortiz says:

      He focuses only on what matters to him personally or to his political party at that time. Everyone else can eat cake as far as he is conceered. He’s indifferent to the suffering of others. Shame on him!

      • Michelle Lynn says:

        If I could…. I would walk up to him, look him straight into his eyes and say “YOUR FIRED”!! I get so tired of hearing that! Everything is a game to him and he doesn’t care what really matters!!!

    • You have no clue who the president is. You are hearing fake/false news and then blaming Trump for the lies of the press.

  3. Stop thinking and complaining about the NFL! Start doing your job already! Take care of all the people in this horrible and life threathen situation NOW! NOT NEXT TUESDAY! HELP OUR PEOPLE IN PUERTO RICO NOW! 16 people have already lost their lives! They don’t have food or water! You should of reacted immediately! That’s what true Presidents do!

  4. We sent aid IMMEDIATELY!!! You Trump haters are so ill informed it’s pitiful!

  5. Trump never ignored Puerto Rico. Petitions are full of fake news. 3000 containers of food/water/supplies are sitting there, but no trucks to transport it from the dock to the people. Around 5 minutes shows the problem in Puerto Rico. Stop blaming Trump for everything and get the truth before you write a petition that means nothing.
