Congresswoman Calls Trump's Treatment of Puerto Rico "Cruel" and "Heartless"

Puerto Rico hasn't even received all the aid funding it was promised after Hurricane Maria, yet President Trump claims the island has received too much money. New York Rep. Nydia Velázquez calls Trump's attempts to cut off Puerto Rico "shameful," "cruel" and "heartless." She says Trump "has no empathy for children who could die because ... the richest country in the world is incapable of doing what is right for American citizens in Puerto Rico."
