send the money, send needs, send those who can actually provide improvement/assistance rather than taking away for a photo op. if he needs to speak with any official from PR, get a satellite phone to them as they have no cell service - no need to make situations worse. you can visit in a few more weeks when things are more situated.
It's not his fault, it's what the crooked media demands nowadays. Look at how they crucified Bush over Katrina. A Republican President will never have a fair shake with the mainstream media, so if Trump delays his visit or doesn't make one at all, it would be mayhem on the news media against him.
