Rally For Puerto Rico Planned Wednesday At The Capitol

Rally For Puerto Rico Planned Wednesday At The Capitol

President Donald Trump is criticizing hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico and says the government can't keep federal aid there "forever".

Trump was apparently referring to a "simple back-of-the-envelope calculation" from CEA chairman Kevin Hassett, who estimated in a speech last month that if USA firms didn't park their profits overseas, the jump in US corporate profits would be passed on to workers, and over eight years, "the median USA household would get a $4,000 real income raise".

"Electric and all infrastructure was disaster before hurricanes", Trump said in a subsequent tweet, also citing a lack of accountability on the island.

"Congress to decide how much to spend.We can not keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been wonderful (under the most hard circumstances) in P.R. forever!" he added.

President Donald Trump has just threatened to pull FEMA out of Puerto Rico. The vast majority of the island remains without power and a good portion without clean drinking water.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, quickly accused Trump of treating residents of the island - American citizens - differently than the victims of the hurricanes that recently hit Texas, Florida and other parts of the Southeast.

"Our goal is to make sure that the Hispanic community understand that we value Latino cultures and origins and we want to celebrate that", Carol Flores from the STCC Hispanic Association told 22News.

Last week, Mr Trump suggested the government debt accumulated by Puerto Rico would have to be wiped out to help it recover from the natural disaster. He picked a fight with the mayor of San Juan that has stirred concerns inside the Republican Party about its relations with Latino voters.
