How to rebuild Puerto Rico: Rubio asks Trump to call in experts

Electric and all infrastructure was disaster before hurricanes.

"Congress to decide how much to spend.We can not keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been awesome (under the most hard circumstances) in P.R. forever!" he added.

Puerto Rico is still largely without electricity and clean water following widespread devastation from Hurricane Maria, almost a month after it made landfall.

Democrats said Trump's tweets were deplorable, given that the 3 million-plus USA citizens on Puerto Rico are confronting the kind of hardships that would draw howls of outrage if they affected a state.

The tweets Thursday morning are just the latest attacks the President has launched on the US territory, which was devastated by two hurricanes last month.

And Paris City Hall called its third car-free day, banning automobiles in more than 40 square miles for most of October 3. As a result, the city temporarily alternated between banning cars with even- and odd-numbered license plates.

The expected vote comes as President Donald Trump questioned in Twitter posts how long the federal commitment to the island should last and suggested that Puerto Rico had mismanaged its finances. This is the time to show our "true colors".

"It is shameful that President Trump is threatening to abandon these Americans when they most need the federal government's help", said Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer, the second-ranking House Democrat. Authorities told CNN on Wednesday that the death toll had gone up to 45, but at least some 113 people were still unaccounted for.

"I don't think there's going to be a federal bailout in which billions of dollars are spent to bail out Puerto Rico".

Rubio said it is up to the oversight board charged with resolving Puerto Rico's debt crisis to determine how to address the island's debt, noting that private debt owed to investors with legal recourse can not simply be "forgiven" by the federal government.

Figures of the latest exodus are unknown, but it is believed Maria's destruction has prompted thousands of Puerto Ricans to leave for the U.S. mainland, with most heading for Florida.

His comments - in which he also blamed the beleaguered island for a financial crisis "largely of their own making" and infrastructure that was a "disaster" before the hurricane - come as Puerto Rico still reels from a lack of electricity, public health access and a rising death toll.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said the government needs to ensure that Puerto Rico can "begin to stand on its own two feet" and said the U.S. has "got to do more to help Puerto Rico rebuild its own economy".

Puerto Rico's economy ground to a halt in the storm. The recovery effort comes after the government-owned electricity utility PREPA filed for bankruptcy in July - and after Puerto Rico itself filed for bankruptcy, facing more than $120 billion in debt, as NPR's Samantha Raphelson has reported. "We continue to do so with the full force of the US government and its resources in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands and other affected areas", she said. He added, "We've saved a lot of lives".

Former Republican Puerto Rico Gov. Luis Fortuno said he was baffled by the President's tweets.
