Geraldo Rivera said the people of Puerto Rico were very happy that President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited to survey the Hurricane Maria recovery efforts, despite the assertions of some in the media.
Geraldo Rivera currently serves as a roaming correspondent-at-large for Fox News Channel (FNC). He joined the network in 2001 as a war correspondent.
Rivera began his career as a reporter for WABC-TV in New York where he presented a series exposing the deplorable conditions at the Willowbrook State School for the mentally ill. These award-winning reports led to a government investigation and the institution was eventually shut down.
Before becoming a member of the original cast of ABC's Good Morning America, Rivera presented the first television broadcast of the infamous Abraham Zapruder film of the assassination of President John Kennedy as host of ABC's Good Night America. He also contributed to ABC's 20/20 for eight years as an investigative reporter.
The winner of the 2000 Robert F. Kennedy journalism award (his third) for his NBC News documentary on "Women In Prison," and the Scripps Howard Foundation national journalism award for "Back to Bedlam," Rivera has received more than 170 awards for journalism, including the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award, three national and seven local Emmys, two Columbia-Dupont and two additional Scripps Howard Journalism Awards.
Rivera is a graduate of the University of Arizona and Brooklyn Law School and is the author of seven books.
