i actually think he is correct. people on facebook groups keep complaining that help isnt there ( since before the storm hit he has done everything to make sure the virgin islands would have the help it need ) help has been here since day 1
people keep complaining that it isnt out there on the main stream news-it has been since day 1
people complain the power is out-2 islands were devastated. infrastructure cant be repaired in a week. its not like on the mainland where other states can just send down linemen and their trucks to help out.
other islands have pitched in to help. since day 1. other groups and organizations are doing as much as they can. help has been arriving every day.
in the states there have been 3 major events that have also taken federal money. the virgin islands cant have it all. you have harvey, you have irma in florida ( pretty much the whole state ) and you have all those fires up north east.

just what should be done that isnt being done?

should he have sugar coated the situation? or just been straight up truthful about it.

People on some of the Facebook groups are expecting miracles. If only they'd spend more of that energy helping those that need it, instead of bi+c#ing.

Although, he is sugar-coating the situation when he goes on national media. I wish he'd stop that.

The sugarcoat is what I dont like. I agree that people that havent been through aftermath of a storm are expecting too much, that being said it does seem lack of coordination in aspects is a problem.
