Video: ABC Tries to Get FEMA Chief to Bash Trump — He Drops Fact Bombs on Stunned Anchor

By

ABC anchor Robin Roberts seemed determined to get FEMA Chief Brock Long to bash President Donald Trump on Wednesday — but he shut her down with facts.

When asked about a claim from MSNBC that tens of millions of dollars were redirected from FEMA to ICE and may have impacted disaster relief, Brock pushed back with the truth.

No, not at all. It’s just an attempt to divert away from the life safety issues of Florence,” he said. “It does not come out of the disaster relief fund that funds everything behind me, that funds everything in the field. So it’s a non issue for us at this moment.”

It may make for a better headline to suggest President Trump’s administration isn’t doing everything humanly possible to save people during a disaster, but that doesn’t make it the truth.
