Declaring the USA territory's electrical grid and infrastructure to have been a "disaster before hurricanes", Trump wrote Thursday 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".

The mayor tweeted that Trump is "incapable of fulfilling the moral imperative to help the people of PR. Shame on you!"

"The law establishes that the aid we are getting from FEMA has to be established for the duration of emergency efforts", he said. "There are the people that say that of course it's going to be a great improvement for us ... but then there's a lot of people that are very mad because they say we are selling the island to outside interests".
