President May End Puerto Rico’s Debt Crisis-

Hurricane relief for Puerto Rico could also bring relief to the island's crushing financial debt.

The U.S. territory filed bankruptcy in May because of its 73-billion-dollar debt burden, making it the biggest U.S. municipal bankruptcy in history. Yesterday, President Trump said Puerto Rico owes a lot of money to Wall Street and that "We will have to wipe that out."

He told Geraldo Rivera on Fox News he didn't know if the debt was to Goldman Sachs, "but whoever it is, you can wave goodbye to that." One of the biggest issues is job seekers leaving for the mainland. Since the recession ended, a lack of job prospects has sent many Puerto Ricans fleeing.

Hurricane Maria left the entire island of Puerto Rico without power or water.

Mattis Breaks With White House On Iran Pact-

Defense Secretary James Mattis appears to be breaking with President Trump on the Iran nuclear deal.

In a Senate hearing yesterday, Mattis said the U.S. should stay with the accord if Iran continues living-up to terms of the deal. "If we can confirm that Iran is living by the agreement, if we can determine that this is in our best interest, then clearly, we should stay with it," Mattis said. "I believe, at this point in time, absent indications to the contrary, it is something the president should consider staying with."

President Trump has called it a terrible deal and an embarrassment. Trump has recently suggested he may pull the U.S. out of the accord.Source: ABC News
