99 percent of Hurricane Matthew aid requested by NC denied by Trump administration

This article is from May 10, 2017. I posted it to point out that eastern NC is still trying to recover from hurricane Matthew , thanks to Trump. Gov. Roy Cooper's a Democrat, therefore not a Trump loyalist. That's the only explanation I can think of for denying aid. It'll be interesting to see if he's more forthcoming with aid due to the midterms. Either way Trump doesn't give a shit about the people of this country.

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) - The State of North Carolina requested $929 million from the federal government to help with costs associated with Hurricane Matthew, but the state will be receiving far less than that, according to an announcement by Gov. Roy Cooper

North Carolina will receive only $6.1 million from the Trump administration. That's 99 percent less than the requested amount.

In a letter Cooper sent to the president and other officials today, he expressed "shock and disappointment in the lack of federal funding for Hurricane Matthew recovery efforts."The governor had worked with Sen. Thom Tillis and Representatives David Price (D) and Rep. David Rouzer (R) in April to come up with a request to Congress to help cover the costs associated with the destruction left by Matthew.

The $929 million requested would have been used to "help communities and families fix homes, repair businesses and recover from the historic flooding," Cooper said.
