The Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved $13 billion to rebuild Puerto Rico’s power grid — three years after Hurricane Maria devastated the island, killing at least 3,000 people. Trump announced the news days after Joe Biden introduced his own recovery plan for Puerto Rico, and less than two months away from the election. Thousands of Puerto Ricans relocated to the critical swing state of Florida following Hurricane Maria. Trump has previously called Puerto Rico “one of the most corrupt places on Earth.”
In other election news, early voting has already begun in Virginia, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wyoming, where residents faced long lines to cast their ballots Friday. Poll workers say the turnout in many locations was exceptionally high compared to previous elections, despite the pandemic.
