Trump on Puerto Rico: ‘There’s Never Been a Situation Where Power and Energy Have Been So Devastated’

‘There’s never been a situation where the energy in the power has been totally destroyed and part of the problem is it was pretty well destroyed before the storm’

EXCERPT:

TRUMP: "It'd be really wonderful if you could have underground wire, makes it a lot better in these storms. But there’s never been a situation where the energy and the power has been totally destroyed. And part of the problem is that it was pretty well destroyed before the storm and we are working together to get that back up, but also to make it long-term. They were working on long-terming it prior to the storm. So now they are really working on it."
