WH Adviser Cohn Stresses PR Efforts Ahead of Tax Reform

(Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures")

By    |   Sunday, 01 October 2017 01:26 PM

Putting aside his pitch on tax reform Sunday morning, White House economic adviser Gary Cohn told Fox News the administration "has spent the entire weekend, as we have last weekend, working on Puerto Rico."

"Before [I talk about tax reform], let me just stop and hesitate and talk about Puerto Rico," Cohn told Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures" host Maria Bartiromo. "I just want to reiterate how involved the administration continues to be. We've spent the entire weekend, as we have last weekend, working on Puerto Rico, making sure we're out saving lives, sustaining lives, and making sure everyone in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands is taken care of.

"United States has gone through extraordinary efforts to deliver goods to the island. Right now, our big challenge to get those goods delivered to the citizens of the island that need those goods."

President Trump, amid a war of words with San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, "has done an extraordinary job of delivering goods and services and people to the island," Cohn told Bartiromo, pointing to the ships being at port waiting to deliver relief.

"It's hard, and the infrastructure has been destroyed, so we're working full speed ahead," Cohn said. "As you know, the president and many of the Cabinet members will be there on Tuesday to see what more if anything we can do."
