Puerto Rico Follows in the Footsteps of Haiti

I was shocked when I read this story about five former presidents raising funds for hurricane relief. [1] I’m not picking on the Chicago Tribune, all of the media handled this story in the same way. I assume this means that the majority of Americans don’t know the aid they sent to Haiti didn’t go to Haitians. As of October 21, the ex-presidents’ appeal had raised $31 million for hurricane relief.  Here’s what has been taking place in Puerto Rico since then.  (I originally posted an older video.  This one was published October 17.)
