Stupid argument.

Yes, presidents delegate.

Who did Trump delegate with Marie, who will Trump delegate with Florence.

Or is like everyone on his own. Or good job Brownie. :roll:

If I were amoral bully like Trump, I'd wish a category 5 hurricane just make a landfall at Mar-a-Lago. But I don't. And it happens any one time.

But then Fema actually should do something. Other than advising people to drive away, and with people with no cars or no gas, though luck, :roll:

Your the one that's stupid.

The state officials can call out the national guard, along with all the city and state resources such as Highway patrol, to help the people. It ain't the Federal Government's job.

We aren't like Finland, the 'United States' are just that ... united states.

Yeah, states are states, But then what is FEMA for? :roll:

How did FEMA do in Houston last year, or was it just unnecessary.

I really hope FEMA is unnecessary with Florence. ;)

You are absolutely clueless about the US. Everything already IS delegated.

Law enforcement, fire and paramedics...cities and counties
Zoning...cities and counties
Evacuation plans...cities and counties
Infectious diseases....cities, counties, states...and rarely CDC, NIH
Utilities...utility operators, with emergency plan coordination with cities and states
Hospitals...hospital operators with city/county coordiantion
Highway safety...usually state highway patrol
National Guard...under the command of the governor of the state

Coast Guard...federal but grounded or in port during the storm

having emergency water and food and our own damn medicines....that is the responsibility of the person who needs the water and food

FEMA = Federal Emergency Management Agency.

FEMA is federal and must have the state governor's permission to act. In Louisiana when they asked for permission the governor didn't give FEMA permission until after it was a disaster.

Trump should issue an Executive Order directing FEMA to take over ALL of those things.

But were he to do so, then some might accuse him of being a dictator, right Nero?

And for New Orleans the mayor did not coordinate with the state or even ask FEMA for guidance. Ditto for P.R. Hirricane Maria's biggest reveal was the stupidity and venility of the mayor of San Juan.
