WASHINGTON, D.C.- President Donald Trump is criticizing hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico and says the government can't keep federal aid there "forever," Associated Press says in a report.
Trump criticized the U.S. territory in a series of tweets Thursday. He says there is a "total lack of accountability" and "electric and all infrastructure was disaster before hurricanes."
The president adds: "We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!"
The House is on track to back Trump's request for billions more in disaster aid, $16 billion to pay flood insurance claims and emergency funding to help the cash-strapped government of Puerto Rico stay afloat.
Hurricane Maria struck Sept. 20. It has killed at least 45 people, and about 85 percent of Puerto Rico residents still lack electricity.
Donald Trump tuits Puerto Rico
In a visit to the island last week, Vice President Mike Pence vowed that the administration will be with Puerto Rico "every step of the way."
"I say to all of you gathered here today to the people of Puerto Rico: We are with you, we stand with you, and we will be with you every single day until Puerto Rico is restored bigger and better than ever before," he said.
Trump himself made a similar promise, saying in a Sept. 29 speech, "We will not rest, however, until the people of Puerto Rico are safe." He added, "These are great people. We want them to be safe and sound and secure. And we will be there every day until that happens."
