Oscar Lopez Rivera: Trump Caused 'Tremendous Damage' to Puerto Ricans

San Juan Mayor Rips Trump as 'Miscommunicator-in-Chief'

Two weeks after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, the FCC has approved a measure providing up to $77 million to restore networks there and in the US Virgin Islands.

Just hours earlier when President Donald Trump visited the island to survey the damage the official death toll remained as it has for days at 16 dead. All three islands are facing widespread power outages as well.

Home is now a classroom at Escuela Felix Seijo Rivera in Utuado, an inland town on the island.

Already the largest data breach in history, the company says it affected all 3 billion of its users, not the 1 billion it revealed late last year.

Another day, another morning for President Trump to bash the "fake news" media.

Mr Mulvaney didn't directly say if the US government would aim for a debt restructuring for Puerto Rico.

"We are going to go where the electoral votes are, we are going to go on planes, we are going to register folks, and we are going to change the dynamics of American politics because of the way the people of Puerto Rico have been treated", Quintana said.

"We have to look at their whole debt structure", Trump said. "Part of it is due to the storm, part of it is due to human neglect".

About 50 people, including union members and advocates, attended the rally outside the Peter W. Rodino Jr. "For Foss, this type of project is at the heart of what we do". Puerto Rico's debts, they wrote, "must be canceled and reduced to sustainable" payments.

The island's hardship can also be linked to federal subsidies that were phased out by the Clinton administration between 1996 to 2006 and the island government's inability to reform its tax codes. Yet, Trump thinks we "can really be very proud of what's taken place in Puerto Rico".

In the wake of its destruction, Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello said Maria was "probably the single biggest hurricane catastrophe in the history of the U.S". A total of 69.4 percent had water sources that violated the act's health standards by providing water with high levels of bacteria and other contaminants.

He said: 'Now, I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you've thrown our budget a little out of whack'. That was a great source of pride. However, the resilience and determination of the people I met today will outlast any damage that was left behind.

It isn't the first time Mr. Trump has hit Puerto Rico over the category 4 storm.

The commonwealth's budget is under the control of a federally appointed oversight board mandated as part of the bankruptcy legislation. "And we're going to have to wipe that out".

"He didn't do a tremendous job in the states, but it's not quite as disturbing and horrific as his response in Puerto Rico", said Tara Blesh-Boren, 34, a registered independent from Lincoln, Nebraska. Former Oval Office occupants have described the difficulty that comes with comforting those working through with the worst moments in their lives. Nobody's ever seen anything like this.
