Dem Doesn’t Think Trump Will Be Able To Handle Florence

Representative Gerry Connolly (D-VA) expressed fear at how unprepared the government is for Hurricane Florence. This comes shortly after President Trump expressed his belief in how well they handled Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. Connolly stated, “What we’re all worried about is the federal capability of response.”

Connolly stated, “If I’ve got a president who’s claiming success in Puerto Rico, I tremble at how well we’re organized to respond to this massive hurricane.”

CNN’s Jim Sciutto then asked, “The president said today that the east coast, in his words, ‘should be in great shape’ for Hurricane Florence. What did he mean there?”

Connolly responded, “Well, if he means by that the states are in pretty good shape, that’s probably accurate. What we’re all worried about is the federal capability of response.”
