Pelosi Accuses Trump of ‘Illegally’ Withholding Aid from Puerto Rico

‘We call upon the White House to stop its unlawful withholding of funds from Puerto Rico’

EXCERPT:

PELOSI: “We call upon the White House to stop its unlawful withholding of funds from Puerto Rico. We also -- there are needs that need to be met. There has been a disaster designated, but the ongoing withholding of funds appropriated by Congress to Puerto Rico is illegal and we call upon the Administration to cease and desist that illegal activity. So what else do we have here? Maybe we’ll just take some questions.”
