As President Trump considers providing aid to the travel industry, he should factor in that only one cruise ship deserves aid from American tax payers. The only cruise ship in the world flagged with the American flag is the “Pride of America”.
The cruise ship industry’s is seeking aid to keep them afloat due to the Covid 19 virus. Any aid should only come from the countries where these cruise ships are flagged. The cruise lines and owners flagged their ships in foreign countries to avoid paying American crews. To avoid following American safety standards. And they did not want to pay Americans to build their ships here in the USA. They should not receive one penny from the USA in aid. If they need aid to keep going they should turn to the country that they flagged their ships in. The name of that country is plainly marked on the stern of every ship and with the flag they fly.
