Schumer Asks Trump Why He Treats Puerto Ricans Differently Than Other Americans

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, on Thursday questioned why President Trump is treating hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico differently from other Americans.

“Why do you continue to treat Puerto Ricans differently than other Americans when it comes to natural disasters?” Schumer tweeted.

Earlier in the morning, Trump had warned that the U.S. cannot aid the territory “forever.”

“We cannot keep [Federal Emergency Management Agency], the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!” Trump wrote in a series of tweets.
