Outside the Capitol, Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said the hurricanes showed why statehood is necessary.

Does it feel that way sometimes?

White House reporter Jeremy Diamond revealed on Friday that President Donald Trump's Senate working group on healthcare is another figment of the president's active imagination, saying no such thing exists.

Puerto Rico renewable energy efforts have been increaed since the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria.

Puerto Rico renewed its push for statehood past year after Hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated the island in 2017.

Trump told reporters Thursday there is $91 billion going to Puerto Rico. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass, and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., among other candidates, have called for admitting Puerto Rico as a state if that is what the island votes to approve. "And the governor ... they don't know how to spend the money and they're not spending it wisely".

According to Puerto Rican officials, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro, along with other senior officials, all but threatened the island's representatives during the meeting.

In the past, Trump rated his efforts in Puerto Rico on a scale of 1-10 as being a 10.

"This bill is about respecting democracy and equality in Puerto Rico".

"The recovery is very poor", he said. "So I want to give him the opportunity to respond, but it's certainly not a 10".

"He sat down with the dictator of North Korea, he sat down with the President of Russian Federation", he said.
