It has been 158 days since Puerto Rico was ravaged by Hurricane Maria and left without power.
As of this writing, 83% of the island is said to have power restored. Akon says he could’ve restored the island’s power months ago — within 30 days of the disaster.
We got Akon Friday night at LAX, and asked about the progress in the Puerto Rican relief effort — as of this week 83% of its residents have power restored. Akon scoffs, because the country is 5 months into disaster relief and power should have been restored months ago.
His org, Akon Lighting Africa, has brought light to 14 African countries and he says he could have done the same for Puerto Rico, but even in disaster politics reigns supreme.
As for Trump, well … Akon joins the chorus — it hard to know what’s in his head.
