    With FEMA understandably overmatched by this fall’s series of megastorms and faced with a uniquely challenging context in Puerto Rico, the Trump administration could have gotten creative: deploying its own international responders at scale, or seeking help from international partners. Inexplicably, it did neither. And the response suffered as a result.

    If I'm remembering things correctly the government actively refused help from other countries -- going so far as not letting aid ships from other places land at Puerto Rico.

    Baffling situation, really. Especially since it demonstrably isn't impossible to handle well, which the article really shows.
