5:16 am
doctor john, san juan. following the devastation of hurricane katrina in 2005, our next guest authored a report on the federal government response. george w. bush's homeland adviser. >> what principally did you learn from looking at that? >> look, what you understand is the federal government is not equipped to be the first responder. it's never going to be. the first responder is the person in your local community. the problem in a devastating natural disaster is those people are also victims. they're not really in a position. they may be the most competent first responders that you've got, but they're not in a position. they've got families and homes to worry about. >> no bus drivers, no police, all at home trying to take care of family. >> we found in katrina, the quicker you surge forces that can actually act and put in place expedition nare logistics,
5:17 am
the quicker you see a recovery. what does that mean? the people who are the best in the world are the u.s. military. right now 7200 troops there. they need thousands more. got the army corps of engineers. they will help in terms the of getting electricity, transmission and distribution. they need a lot more help now until they get on their feet. >> we heard praise from the administration after harvey and irma the way they handled things. we're hearing two different stories from puerto rico and the administration. what changed? >> he gets this. oftentimes you're getting the site of a natural disaster is reports are wrong. a. the people on the ground have the best information so the mayor and the governor know the best what their own constituents
5:18 am
are dealing with. you have to defer to them. you have to listen to them and respond to their needs. the best example is the jones act. the foreign flag ships. they got all the commodities into puerto rico. they didn't need to waive the jones act. governor calls and said, look, you do and they did it right % away. that's a good example of you've have to listen to the people on the ground. >> you mentioned getting goods in. we've seen a lot of stuff stacked up at ports, but not able to get it out anywhere. we know there's a shortage of drivers. could that not have been anticipated. >> it's the right question. i don't think we have a good answer yet. we had a three star general at northern command in the united
5:19 am
states overseeing the response and one star general on the ground sort of executing against the plan. i think what they see now the three star general on his way if he's not already arrived in puerto rico to evaluate the response and requirements. i would be surprised if he didn't say i need more troops in order to manage this distribution until puerto rico itself can get back on its feet. >> why did it take so long to get three star general in place. you mentioned before the army knows how to deal with this and they should be the ones. >> to be fair, my understanding from the white house is that three star general has been in place from the beginning, but he was managing sort of his role from the mainland u.s. and i think that the sort of adjustment has been they're going to send him down to understand better on the ground what they're requiring. >> as you were saying, you need to be there. >> thank you great perspective. coming up the next hour, more on the federal response to the humanitarian crisis in puerto rico. talk with "the washington post"

5:41 am
together. >> it's interesting the attitude you see in polls. on one hand you see the them say they want the players to stand for the "national anthem," but on the other hand, people do not like what the president is saying. so where does that leave things? >> yeah. it's tough right now. i think owners, maybe even networks, fans probably want this to move on, but i think players know. i think players want too keep the message going. what's happened this whole thing started with colin kaepernick a year ago and it's a little mixed right now because players and owners want unity. everyone wants unity. the crafted statements, we're all together, no divisiveness. but players we protesting with kaepernick in racial inequality and police action against african-americans. it's changed but players still want to get the message out. >> you mentioned mixed message and some wanting to move on.
5:42 am
we saw some sponsors come out and put these crafted statements together. the nfl owners have to be concerned with the business side of things. you've been in the front offices. what do they do at this point. now where do they go? >> you showed green bay where we were for many years. you have to support your primary stakehold stakeholders, your product, your players. you have to support them. but you have to talk about the sponsors and fans. there's a base of support for what trump said. there's a base of support who want players to stick to sports. you have to balance all of those concerns. you have to balance support for your player and look at what's dwoig on outside. >> is it a ratings thing? i think you wrote about this. ratings are going to go up and down. what do owners look at if they're trying to get a sense of whether they're trying to get a fan base? >> ratings is a big factor.
5:43 am
sponsor, interfacing. all the things you're talking about. are the metries going north? do they keep going north? are people behind this? i think what happened is we had this week of emotion in week three of the nfl. now what's going to happen. if owners are not as supportive of players, do players support even more? is it discipline and league and team. we have to watch both sides. >> is there evidence that the nfl is paying for this in some way at this point? >> you see the polls saying move on. i think what happened a year ago the nfl look a what kaepernick did and said right away, we encourage but dot not require players to standle you're going to see sitting and kneeling. kaepernick is a movement. he's a much bigger story unsigned than signed. if he was signed, it would be a one-day story and they'd move on.

5:49 am
on the individual level, this is a shuvling of the decks. some will pay more, some will pay less. it's not huge. the corporate tax, that really changes the game. and then wealthy heirs are the other winners. doing away with the estate tax. >> it's a small group. >> it's a small group that affects huge amounts o dollars. >> the white house is billing this as a big win for the middle class. you had fwar co-ensaying families would say about a thousand dollars, enough to buy a cared on build a kitchen. >> i have clients working on renovations. u i can guarantee you it costs many than a thousand dollars even on a budget, a dyi. no, no, definitely not. the reality is 70 p of the americans claim their deductions. their taxes are already pretty
