FILE - In this Sept. 26, 2017 file photo, Nestor Serrano walks on the upstairs floor of his home, where the walls were blown off, in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, in Yabucoa, Puerto Rico.

For many, Trump’s boast is hard to square with their daily reality: Blackouts remain common, and nearly 60,000 homes have only a makeshift roof.
