Puerto Rico demands clarity from Trump on whether he'll redirect emergency funding for wall

by Axios | 1.11.19

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello on Friday asked President Trump to clarify reports that he could declare a national emergency and redirect funds from natural disaster aid for Puerto Rico, California, and Texas in order to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall.

What he's saying: "No wall should be funded on the pain and suffering of US citizens who have endured tragedy and loss through a natural disaster ... Since the reports are coming from unidentified sources, [Trump] should explicitly state what his intent is."
