Obama Is Expanding 'Efforts To Help Puerto Rico' While Trump Is Still Hating On NFL Players

Here's how you can donate to the One America Appeal.

Published September 27, 2017

While Puerto Rico faces a humanitarian crisis after being left without food, water and power by Hurricane Maria, President Trump has not spent nearly as much time talking about relief efforts as he has talking about the NFL. 

Despite Trump's promises that Puerto Rico will get help "soon," many feel that he hasn't made a solid effort to send resources for the island's people. 

As people wait for the current administration to act for the people of Puerto Rico, Barack Obama came through with a relief effort to aid all those who have been affected by the recent storms. 

One America Appeal is described on its website as a "joint appeal that was originally launched by all five living former American Presidents to encourage their fellow citizens to support recovery efforts."

The bipartisan group includes Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. 

"Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria have brought terrible devastation — but also brought out the best in humanity. As former Presidents, we wanted to come together to help our fellow citizens in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean as they recover and rebuild," the website reads. 

This effort is taking place while Trump continues to bash NFL players on Twitter.
