Trump Gives His Outlook On Puerto Rico
While President Trump has been supportive of Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, which devastated the island—he has not shied away from criticizing their dire economic situation.

Thursday morning he tweeted out a quote from journalist Sharyl Attkisson about their financial mess in the wake of the hurricanes.

“'Puerto Rico' survived the Hurricanes, now a financial crisis looms largely of their own making,' says Sharyl Attkisson,” he wrote.

Trump also noted that Puerto Rico’s infrastructure was a mess before the storms, and now the big decision will be how much Congress will decide to spend on the island territory.
