Trump boosts federal aid for Puerto Rico after storm: White House

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday agreed to boost federal disaster aid to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria hit the U.S. territorial island last week, the White House said in a statement.

The move will increase federal funding to assist with debris removal and emergency protective measures, the White House said.
