President #Trump says #PuertoRico can’t stay on welfare forever

Puerto Rico has been an economic basket case for decades. Incapable of self-government, the island has drifted aimlessly costing American taxpayers billions.

The President said that it will be up to Congress how much federal money to appropriate to the island for its recovery efforts and that recovery workers will not stay “forever.”

In a trio of tweets, Trump wrote, “We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!”
