Governor Cuomo Visits Puerto Rico


Governor Cuomo continues his trip to Puerto Rico on Wednesday, where he’s surveying damage caused by last week’s earthquakes.

“People don't trust the structures they're in, some structures have cracked, they're afraid the continuing tremors will actually make it worse,” Cuomo said.

Cuomo said the earthquakes come on the heels of Hurricane Maria, which he said the U.S. didn’t properly respond to.

“I think this nation should be ashamed of their response to Hurricane Maria. I don't believe the federal government stepped up the way they should. They treated Puerto Rico as if it was a separate country. Puerto Rico is part of the United States. Puerto Ricans are American citizens. They're not second-class American citizens,” Cuomo said.
