    In a thread of early morning tweets, US President Donald Trump expressed his displeasure with Puerto Rico’s personal progress on hurricane relief.

    Nothing is Forever?

    Citing a quote from journalist Sharyl Attkisson, Trump attempted to highlight the state of Puerto Rico's infrastructure and economy prior to Hurricane Maria. He later went on to stress how FEMA, the military and first responders have been the ones shouldering the burden of relief and cannot stay in "P.R. forever!"

    Meanwhile, the US War in Afghanistan just passed its 16th birthday.
