Trump dumped his gripes while more than 80% of the US territory is still without water, a third of its citizens do not have clean drinking water and the death toll from Maria has still not even been finalized. The president adds: "We can not keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been incredible (under the most hard circumstances) in P.R. forever!"

"Puerto Rico survived the Hurricanes, now a financial crisis looms largely of their own making", tweeted Trump, apparently quoting television newscaster Sharyl Attkisson. Though its citizens can move freely throughout the country and serve in the U.S. military, they cannot vote and have little ability to sway policies that affect them. "Puerto Rico was totally destroyed". "We want them to be safe, and sound, and secure, and we will be there every day until that happens".
