The war of words between President Trump and Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló heated up Thursday, two days after Trump told Republican lawmakers that Puerto Rico has received too much aid since 2017’s devastating Hurricane Maria. This is Governor Rosselló speaking to CNN’s Jim Acosta.
Jim Acosta: “Does it feel that way sometimes? Are you dealing with a bully?”
Gov. Ricardo Rosselló: “If the bully gets close, I’ll punch the bully in the mouth.”
In response, Trump told reporters, “I’ve taken better care of Puerto Rico than anyone, ever.” President Trump has still not acknowledged more than 3,000 people died in Puerto Rico after the hurricane.
