Clinton Tries to Call Shots: ‘Trump Should Send Navy to Puerto Rico’

Since when does Hillary Clinton care about American citizens? Her most famous words are easily, “What difference does it make?” after American citizens were killed in Benghazi.

Her ship for calling the shots has sailed, but she is still trying to pull the strings. Clinton is calling on Trump and Defense Secretary James Mattis to deploy the U.S. Navy to Puerto Rico to help with hurricane relief efforts.

She did so in a tweet stating, “President Trump, Sec. Mattis, and DOD should send the Navy, including the USNS Comfort, to Puerto Rico now. These are American citizens.”

Thats the most concern I have seen from her for Americans since……well, thats the most concern I have ever seen from her.

She also retweeted photos of those impacted by the storm.

We are all for helping the people! If it means sending in the Navy, then so be it! I pray that their lives are restored back to normal as soon as possible. I just find it ironic that Clinton thinks she has any power to call shots at his point.

Hurricane Maria brought large amounts of destruction as the whipping winds and relentless rain pummeled the islands in the Caribbean, claiming the lives of at least 19 people in the region.

About 3.4 million residents in Puerto Rico are living without electricity after the storm knocked out the power on Wednesday. Officials are warning that it could be months before they see the lights flicker back on as repair efforts just begin to get afoot.

Federal emergency relief resources are already strained after a wave of powerful storms hit the U.S. over the past few months including Hurricane Harvey and Irma.

Trump spoke with the governors of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands on Thursday, a day after declaring the impact of Hurricane Maria a major disaster.
