Trump points to Congress on Puerto Rico assistance

WASHINGTON, Oct 12 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday said federal assistance cannot stay “forever” on the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico following recent hurricanes, and that Congress must determine how much disaster funding to provide.

In a series of posts on Twitter, also said the island’s electrical grid and infrastructure were already a “disaster” before Hurricane Maria struck last month. (Writing by Susan Heavey)
