Trump Holding Back Money for Puerto Rico Recovery

Trump administration officials have admitted that last summer they
knowingly withheld billions of dollars Congress appropriated to help
Puerto Rico recover from Hurricane Maria. House Democrats say
withholding the relief money violates the law. The HUD delay meant the island missed a deadline to apply for billions
of dollars in disaster relief funds, raising doubts about when, if ever,
the money will flow to the island devastated in September 2017 by a
Category 5 hurricane.
