Summary

Buzz60WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump defended his record on Puerto Rico on Thursday, claiming he has taken care of the U.S. territory better than "any living human being." Trump, who has long been criticized for his administration's handling of Hurricane Maria's impact to the island in 2017, appeared to be responding to comments made by Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló to CNN where he issued a stern warning to Trump's reported questions about slashing disaster funding for the island. Rosselló told CNN he wouldn't be bullied by the White House as he continues to press for disaster relief assistance tied to Hurricane Maria, which devastated Puerto Rico in 2017 and had impacts that linger over a year and a half later.The rift between Trump and Puerto Rico grew this week when, in a meeting with Senate Republicans, the president again questioned the amount of funding the island was receiving for disaster relief, CNN and the Washington Post reported.During the meeting, Trump questioned why Puerto Rico received more than $90 billion in aid, the two outlets reported.
