Pelosi rips Trump's 'heartbreaking' warning to Puerto Rico

Cubic Corporation Helping Puerto Rico Restore Communication

"We can not keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders" in Puerto Rico "forever", President Trump said Thursday, hinting at a possible limit on federal aid to the island territory where 3.4 million Americans have struggled to recover from two destructive hurricanes. "A total lack of accountability say the Governor".

"We understand this has been a catastrophic event on the island of Puerto Rico".

Trump's latest outburst immediately touched off criticism.

President Donald Trump suggested Thursday that Puerto Rico is going to have to shoulder more responsibility for recovery efforts from Hurricane Maria, saying the federal government's emergency responders can't stay there "forever".

LLC Raises Stake in JetBlue Airways Co. (JBLU)
The stock of JetBlue Airways Corporation (NASDAQ: JBLU ) has "Outperform" rating given on Wednesday, July 29 by Imperial Capital. Florida-based Jackson Wealth Ltd Limited Liability Company has invested 0.56% in JetBlue Airways Corporation (NASDAQ: JBLU ).

He continued in a third tweet: "We can not keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been awesome (under the most hard circumstances) in P.R. forever!"

To clarify, that's the president of the United States (1) doubling down on his claim that, really, the commonwealth brought this on itself; (2) suggesting that, despite the fact that almost 90 percent of people are still without power and some may be drinking from Superfund sites because they don't have clean water, the federal government is about ready to wash its hands of the situation; and (3) implying that the people of Puerto Rico are pulling a fast one on him, trying to take advantage to extract more aid than they really need.

The bill stood at $36.5 billion as of Wednesday afternoon. Electric and all infrastructure was disaster before hurricanes. Trump then seemed to indicate he may pull federal relief workers, including those under the Federal Emergency Management Agency, from the island. In addition to the federal effort, 22 states have responded to calls for aid in Puerto Rico.

Up to $5 billion of the FEMA money could be used to help local governments remain functional as they endure unsustainable cash shortfalls in the aftermath of Maria, which has choked off revenues and strained resources.

House Speaker Paul Ryan will lead a bipartisan delegation visiting Puerto Rico on Friday, according to the speaker's office. He has promised that the island will get what it needs.

He continued: "I lived through it myself, a victim of floods on numerous occasions, had to clean it up, and I will tell you, nobody came to help us, we handled it ourselves". "It's not easy when you are continue to suffer - see the suffering of the people without food, without water, and actually living in a humanitarian crisis".

Several lawmakers from hurricane-hit states said a third interim aid request is anticipated shortly - with a final, huge hurricane recovery and rebuilding package likely to be acted upon by the end of the year.
