Trump On Puerto Rico's Debt: "We're Going To Have To Wipe That Out"


In an interview that aired on Tuesday's edition of Hannity, President Trump addressed Puerto Rico's debt and told FOX News' Geraldo Rivera "we're going to have to wipe that out."

"We have to look at the whole debt structure," Trump said to Rivera during his Tuesday visit to San Juan. "You know, they owe a lot of money to your friends on Wall Street and we're going to have to wipe that out. It's going to have to be, you can say goodbye to that. I don't know if it's Goldman Sachs but whoever it is, you can wave goodbye to that. We have to do something because the debt was massive on the island."

Trump also promised a humanitarian effort with regards to the damage the commonwealth suffered from Hurricane Maria.

"We are going to help the people out," Trump promised. "We are going to get the electric going again. You know that was a complete wipeout, that wasn't like a couple of poles came down. That was generating plants, that was a lot of very valuable equipment. But it was equipment in bad shape but we are going to put it in good shape."
