Nancy Pelosi accuses President Donald Trump of dismissing the American citizens of Puerto Rico. In a Capitol briefing yesterday, the House Democratic leader said hurricane assistance for Puerto Rico is a real challenge for the conscience of the nation. In an earlier tweet, the President said FEMA and the U.S. military cannot stay in Puerto Rico forever. He also criticized the island's infrastructure and debt problems. Pelosi called the President's tweets heartbreaking and said they lack knowledge about FEMA's role after natural disasters.
Earlier this month, Trump said his administration will not rest until the job is done in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
