Puerto Rico Gov. Rossello: I Answered Trump Truthfully

Puerto Rico Gov. Rossello: I Answered Trump Truthfully”

But at the same time, there is a reality that we must be honest about: Many residents of Puerto Rico do not pay federal income tax.

Activists work to provide relief to Puerto Rico's poorest; Spain cracks down on Catalonia; Trump's Travel Ban struck down again.

When it comes to grading hurricanes, President Donald Trump is off the mark about Maria.

He said he has given his blessing to Congress for a funding plan, but added that the governor "understands that these folks can't be there forever".

"The truth of the matter is, the president has responded", Rosselló said on Friday.

Trump did not give any specifics about how much money the government may give or loan to the cash-strapped territory, home to 3.4 million USA citizens. Rossello has been supportive of Trump, while the mayor of San Juan has been outspoken in her criticism.

Trump and some of his top aides suggested last week that there would be limits to how much help Puerto Rico could expect from Washington.

That has complicated and delayed efforts to restructure a portion of a $74-billion public debt load that officials say is unpayable.

People hug as they are reflected in a mirror, after Hurricane Maria hit the island in September, in Toa Baja, Puerto Rico October 18, 2017.

The Puerto Rican government said that more than 80 percent of the island remains without electricity and more than 30 percent do not have safe drinking water.

While almost 90 per cent of supermarkets have reopened, many have bare rows of shelves empty of goods like water, bananas and canned tuna.

"We need to think about rebuilding Puerto Rico in a holistic way".

College students in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands whose studies have been halted by the recent hurricanes are being offered an educational lifeline by New Jersey City University.
