“Even though the United States government has helped, there’s still a long road ahead and that is OUR reality,” he said of the Trump administration’s response to the natural disaster caused by a hurricane in 2017.

Cora said he will continue to use his platform in support of the U.S. territory’s citizens.

“And my absence is no different,” he said of his decision to skip the upcoming visit. “As such, at this moment, I don’t feel comfortable celebrating in the White House.”
