LOOK, THERE HAVE BEEN NINE DAYS OF PROTESTS BUT, OBVIOUSLY, ONLY IN PERT RIO CAN YOU DO — PARTY RIO CAN YOU DO TO — PUERTO RICO CAN YOU DO A PROTEST LIKE THIS. YOU CAN SEE POLICE AND POLICE HELICOPTERS OUT HERE IN THE BAY OF SAN JUAN. THEY ARE MONITORING WHAT HAVE BEEN PROTESTS. YOU’LL SEE THAT THERE ARE KAYAKS AND JET SKIS AND PEOPLE ALL THE WAY OUT HERE THAT HAVE BEEN MAKING NOISE TO JUST TRY TO, CALLING FOR THE GOVERNOR TO RESIGN. RICARDO ROSEO HAS REFUSED TO DO THIS. THIS MORNING THERE WERE PROTESTERS WHO HAD A YOGA SESSION OUTSIDE OF THE GOVERNOR’S MANSION. THE BIG DAY TOMORROW, IT COULD BE THE LARGEST DAY OF DEMONSTRATIONS IN THE HISTORY OF THIS ISLAND. IN TERMS OF WHAT PEOPLE ARE REALLY UPSET ABOUT IT, NOT JUST THE GROUP CHANT. A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO TWO OF THE TOP LIEUTENANTS WERE ARRESTED BY THE FBI FOR STEERING SOME $15 MILLION INTO THE HANDS OF SOME PRIVATE, UNQUALIFIED CONTRACTORS.

BUT WE DO KNOW THAT HE’S BEEN SENDING OUT PHOTOS VIA TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM AS THOUGH IT IS BUSINESS AS USUAL THOUGH IT IS ANYTHING BUT. THE PROTESTS GOT REALLY BAD ON THAT WEDNESDAY NIGHT THAT YOU SAW THAT VIDEO THERE WITH SOME TEAR GAS, AND THE FEAR IS THAT TOMORROW COULD END UP BEING THE SAME WAY IF HE DOES NOT RESIGN SOON. THE PRESSURE IS MOUNTING FROM THE MAINLAND. WE’VE GOT NOW ABOUT MOST OF THE MAIN DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES HAVE COME OUT AND HAVE AT LEAST SPOKEN ABOUT HAVING SOLIDARITY WITH THE PUERTO RICAN PEOPLE, INCLUDING JOE BIDEN. OTHERS HAVE COME OUT RIGHT AWAY AND HAVE ASKED FOR HIM TO RESIGN POINT-BLANK INCLUDING REPRESENTATIVE TULSI GABBARD WHO IS THE ONLY ONE OF THOSE CANDIDATES ON THE ISLAND THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS WITH THE PROTESTERS. AGAIN, LELAND, THIS IS SOMETHING IN WHICH IT’S BEYOND THOSE GROUP TEXT MESSAGES WHICH WAS, ESSENTIALLY, VALUE DATING WHAT MANY PUERTO RICANS HAD FELT OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS. THIS ISLAND HAS BEEN MIRED IN ECONOMIC CRISIS OVER THE LAST DECADE PLUS. SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN CLOSED, HUNDREDS OF THEM, PENSIONS CUT, JOBS LOST, AND THOSE TEXT MESSAGES VALUE DATED ALL OF THEIR — VALUE DATED ALL OF THEIR FRUSTRATIONS, AND THEY’RE HOPING THIS LOUD MUSIC RIGHT OUTSIDE OF HIS RESIDENCE AND THESE JET SKIS AND THE ANNOYANCE WILL FINALLY PUSH HIM OUT. LELAND: IT’S NOTEWORTHY ABOUT WHETHER YOU’RE AT, THE IDYLLIC NATURE OF IT, AND THIS IS AN AREA IN PUERTO RICO THAT JUST HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET ITS ACT TOGETHER FINANCIALLY X. AS YOU POINT OUT, THEY’VE HAD JUST CONTINU ALTERABLE PROBLEMS. BRYAN LLENAS, WE’RE GOING TO

  1. Trump is wright again like usual, why is the united states democrats getting in on it, they are more crooked than they say Puerto Rican government is

  2. Puerto Ricans are socialist. They want free stuff. They certainly don't want to rebuild. They want YOU to pay. They want government violence directed at you to steal your labor to give to them.
    Just pay attention to their elections. They aren't looking for small government. They want big government and free stufg.

  3. The Don was right again. when he was suspicious about the corruption down there.. the POTUS TRUMP is no fool. This governor was one of the big reasons aid did not get to these people after the hurricane. vote this governor. make him resign or vote him out.

  4. 91 billion! Where is it ? Nice ! He needs to be gone and what’s happened to all that money ?? Please report what’s up !!

  5. This is just an idea but Puerto Rico should be added to Florida as another county since they deal with a very large Hispanic population. Florida will be able to manage the funds/corruption, give them Federal voting rights and breakup the Puerto Rican swamp with Trumps help.

  6. Typical democrat, making vulgar and misogynistic remarks, just glad the people see what 🤡's the Democratic Party has turned Puerto Rico into. It's always been a democratic playhouse for corrupt government. Glad to see the people fight for their rights.

  7. We are aware of how they waste/steal our tax dollars; so why in the hell do we keep sending them Billions of US dollars? Our leaders have failed again. Do you think they continue to send them OUR money so they can ask for more taxes?

  8. I don't know why so many people think Puerto Rico is liberal. Most of the population is, what I'd describe as conservative, and the political system doesn't even care much about left or right. It's all about the status of the island so you'll see "republicans" and "liberals" in the same party :v

    Right now people with all kinds of views are protesting against Rossello. People are just tired of politicians in general right now.

  9. You’re in Puerto Rico, doing a report from the beach standing in the water. You’d think he’d wear shorts.

  10. The Governor is a Democrat who supported Hilary Clinton. Most people of Puerto Rico are Democrats and vote for Democrats when they reside in the USA.I wonder if now they are going to blame Trump and the Republicans for their problems.

  11. Puerto Rican are DEMOCRATS by nature, remember them blaming president TRUMP for the victims of the storm….Learn people from other's mistakes the DEMOCRAT psrty is the party of evil and mssery!!!

  12. Shouldn't Puerto Rico be a state by now? How is the colonial Jones Act legal under international human rights law? We should either make them a state and straighten out their third world ways, or leave them to do… what they've done to our country …to theirselves. Over-populating is not a sound economic strategy… shoulder to shoulder, if deported… could they fit in their own country? I think not.

  13. Humm what was the name of that guy who said the government in Puerto Rico was corrupted? I know it was our awesome President Donald J Trump!!!

  14. They have nothing else to do…!!!
    Essentially the Congress of PR is in the process to impeach the governor "residensiamento in Spanish". If they find a crime has been committed. It then goes to the senate and there is a trial where the supreme court judge presides over the process. If the first chamber of the PR congress finds no crime by him then it goes nowhere and the Gov has already said he will not run again. I think all these celebrities and wannabe presidents going to PR to support the offended and discontented are just trying to get free publicity and placing themselves on a higher plane. Sadly it is all a bit hypocritical. Let the process in the PR Congress proceed and stop interfering in the Islands political process. By the way we have been citizens since 1917 and fought in all major wars and conflicts and by population we are around the 26 state/territory in size but anyone who immigrated from a distressed world stage country can now vote and even go to the US Congress and then tell us what to do….what a hypocrisy. It is time to bring in Puerto Rico into the mainstream of America and treat us as equals not vassals. PS We are as divided politically as the rest of the US so no party should benefit more than the other…!!!

  15. Now you have all those Democrats racing for Puerto Rican votes really now. The only way Puerto Rico's going to get back on track vote Trump!!!

  16. Este Miserable Ejemplar de Tiranillo no quiere Renunciar aun porque esta tratando de borrar sus Miserables Actos de Corrupcion. O se larga o lo sacan a Patadas a este Miserable Corrupto Delincuente.

  18. He's been investigated. They haven't found anything on him. He would've been inducted and arrested if they had. People acting like they've never said anything bad about anyone in their private convos or texts. Gtfo with that hypocrisy.

  19. A town in my state was hit by a tornado, The insurance adjusters said half a million of improvements happened. These guys should have been sent to PR.

  20. Rossello is so noble, he's not going to run again, as though he had a chance of being re-elected.
    The only reason he won't resign TODAY is to buy time to funnel that stolen hurricane Maria money off the island he has buried…

  21. Democrats trying to kick out one of their own. What a big surprise!! The Democrats on the mainland should really pay attention. Their money hungry Democratic elected officials, past, present, and future, are just as corrupt as the Puerto Rican Governor.

  22. PUERTORICAN CITIZENS PRESS TO CONTINUE THE INVESTIGATIONS AGAINST THIS PIG ALL THAT MONEY AID FOR HURRACAINE MARIA VICTIMS IS STILL MISSING HE MAY HAVE SOME SECRET BANK ACCOUNT WITH ALL THE FUNDS HE KNEW SOONER OR LATER HE WAS GOING TO BE CAUGHT A RESIGNATION IS NOT ENOUGH JUST LIKE HIS JOKE OF HIS APOLOGIES THIS GUY HAD PLANNED HIS RETIREMENT WITH THAT MONEY ALL AHEAD OF THIS MESS.
