Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump lashed out at hur­ri­canedev­as­tated Puerto Rico on Thurs­day, in­sist­ing in tweets that the govern­ment can’t keep send­ing help “for­ever” and sug­gest­ing the U.S. ter­ri­tory was to blame for its fi­nan­cial strug­gles. His broad­sides trig­gered an out­cry from Democrats and of­fi­cials on the is­land, which has been reel­ing since Hur­ri­cane Maria struck three weeks ago, leav­ing death and de­struc­tion in an un­par­al­leled hu­man­i­tar­ian cri­sis.

Po­lice tak­ing fresh look at We­in­stein claims

Po­lice de­tec­tives in New York City and Lon­don are tak­ing a fresh look into sex­ual as­sault al­le­ga­tions against Hol­ly­wood film pro­ducer Har­vey We­in­stein now that some 30 women have ac­cused him of in­ap­pro­pri­ate con­duct. NYPD spokesman Peter Don­ald said Thurs­day that in­ves­ti­ga­tors are try­ing to de­ter­mine whether there were any ad­di­tional com­plaints in­volv­ing We­in­stein. That in­cludes re­view­ing po­lice files to see if any women pre­vi­ously re­ported be­ing as­saulted or ha­rassed by him.
