Puerto Rico Governor on Recovery Efforts and Debt

It’s too soon to say what part of President Donald Trump’s Puerto Rico visit will be most remembered. The paper-towel toss? His handshake with the San Juan mayor he’d insulted days before?

But if tradition holds, his brief trip eventually will be memorialized in the form of a life-size bronze statue of Trump next to one representing the last presidential visitor, Barack Obama. The Puerto Rican government created the Walkway of the Presidents across from the legislative building in 2010. Its nine statues also include Franklin D. Roosevelt, who visited in 1934, and Dwight Eisenhower, in 1960.
