House Is Expected to Pass Disaster Relief, Puerto Rico Credit Bill

White House legislative affairs director Marc Short said on CNN's "The Situation Room" that he did not view Trump's tweets as a "threat" to withdraw aid to Puerto Rico and conceded he did not know why Trump chose to make those statements Thursday morning. A total lack of.accountability say the Governor. Electric and all infrastructure was disaster before hurricanes.

The president adds: "We can not keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been awesome (under the most hard circumstances) in P.R. forever!"

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said in a news conference Thursday that he called the White House looking for clarification on Trump's tweets.

Trump has been complaining about Puerto Rico's debt and infrastructure issues since the hurricanes made landfall and has claimed the mayor of San Juan has poor leadership skills.

Ryan said he didn't know about Trump's tweets.

He added: "There will be a period in which ... we hope sooner rather than later, to where the U.S. military and FEMA, generally speaking, can withdraw because then the government and the people of Puerto Rico are recovering sufficiently to start the process of rebuilding".

Carmen Yulin Cruz says on Twitter that Trump's words "seem more to come from a 'Hater in Chief".

"The President wrote in two separate tweets, "'Puerto Rico survived the Hurricanes, now a financial crisis looms largely of their own making.' says Sharyl Attkisson.

"I ask the United Nations, UNICEF, and the world to stand with the people of Puerto Rico and stop the genocide that will result from a lack of appropriate action from the president", Cruz said. Puerto Rico and its agencies owe more than $70 billion to creditors.

Short also argued it was wrong for the government to take this moment to expand hurricane relief into larger assistance for Puerto Rico.

Although it was free to play in Thursday's game, Chestnut Academy sold baked goods and water with all proceeds going to the victims of Hurricane Maria.

60 percent of wastewater treatment plants are working on generator power.

Only 10 percent of the island has electricity while only about 65 percent of residents have drinking water, the Pentagon said in a statement.

"We will be there all the time to help Puerto Rico recover, restore, rebuild", Trump said during a Hispanic Heritage event at the White House. He added, "We've saved a lot of lives".

"It's puzzling, given everything the administration is doing to reconstruct the island".

"Today, we must act quickly to ensure that the federal government is able to fulfill its duty to the millions of Americans in need", Frelinghuysen said on the House floor.
