Trump Says Puerto Rico Relief Inhibited by “Big Water, Ocean Water”

President Trump on Friday said the disaster relief efforts in Puerto Rico are complicated because the island is “surrounded by water.”

“This is an island, surrounded by water. Big water. Ocean water,” the President said during a speech in Washington touting his tax plan.

The comments come after the administration has faced criticism for their response to Hurricane Maria.

The President has often referred to Puerto Rico’s location as an issue for providing sufficient relief.
