"You know, Harvey is memorable for people's ability to rush in to help - the overwhelming response".

Gillespie said his team did whatever it took to bring supplies to the people. "We wanted to demonstrate with real projects - with immediate impact - that renewable energy technology is available now and it's a much more resilient alternative to diesel".

There's your story, Trump told the media.

A hundred percent of the proceeds from the special Puerto Rican influenced menu items will be donated to the United for Puerto Rico fund helping the island rebuild and recover.
