Trump accuses Puerto Rico of using disaster funds for other debt

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday accused Puerto Rico’s politicians of using “massive and ridiculously high amounts of hurricane/disaster funding” to pay off other debts, and said he would not allow a bailout with relief money.

“The U.S. will NOT bail out long outstanding & unpaid obligations with hurricane relief money!,” Trump said on Twitter.

A federally appointed oversight board on Tuesday approved a fiscal reform plan for Puerto Rico over opposition from the island’s elected government. The plan calls for a range of fiscal and structural reforms, reduces government spending and takes into account $20 billion in federal disaster relief funds.

2. Coming from someone taking rally funds for his own legal fees and personal things probably

And from someone who took foundation monies to pay for legal funds , and for personal use for himself. Isn't that what they're after you and your family for doing with your fake foundation scam you were running. And don't forget that phony University he ran scamming people out of their money with. He's a crook and a professional con artist . Look at HIS history and we'll see how legit he is. lol. This attack is racially motivated completely.
