Ryan aims to help Puerto Rico stand on its own”

We weren't prepared: The government's lack of awareness, and thus regulation of social media technology, leaves tech platforms to monitor themselves - which didn't provide much incentive for them to keep close tabs on how their platforms were being used for electoral manipulation. A cargo plane chartered by MLB was set to take off Thursday morning, NY1 reports.

Joining in the county's effort is Westampton Deputy Mayor Abraham Lopez, executive director of the Center for Hispanic Policy, Research and Development.

In remarks at the White House, Trump said he was taking a step toward "saving the American people from the nightmare of Obamacare".

The House is on track to back Trump's request for billions more in disaster aid, $16 billion to pay flood insurance claims and emergency funding to help the cash-strapped government of Puerto Rico stay afloat. "They know these are awfully genuine needs", he said, arguing that Republicans simply want to fund the measure in a "prudent" way.

Rather than criticizing Trump directly, Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello insisted on "requesting the support that any of our fellow citizens would receive across our Nation".

His broadsides triggered an outcry from Democrats in Washington and officials on the island, which has been reeling since Hurricane Maria struck three weeks ago, leaving death and destruction in an unparalleled humanitarian crisis. He blamed Puerto Rico for its looming financial crisis and "a total lack of accountability". "Someone is going to pay the bill".

He then went on to propose that the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the military and first responders - who he said "have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances)" - cannot stay in the U.S. territory "forever!"

It did not include the $18.7 billion and $27 billion requests made by Texas and Florida lawmakers, respectively, for rebuilding efforts from hurricane damage.

Earlier Thursday, the president quoted a journalist with the conservative-leaning Sinclair Broadcast Group as suggesting the island shared in the responsibility for the plight of its citizens.

"We have gone all out for Puerto Rico", Trump said at that meeting with Puerto Rico officials, including Cruz. So some are turning to wells at Superfund sites on the island-areas designated the most toxic in US territory.

The House easily passed the bill, with the Senate expected to do so later month and send it to Trump for signing into law.

It was not immediately clear which Superfund sites the EPA was referring to. But the federal relief effort has also hit problems such as reported hoarding by municipal employees, Tom said, citing it as one reason for the "militarization of the aid operation" in Puerto Rico.

That left Congress with little choice but to help fill the gap, Rubio said.
