"We are committed to helping Puerto Rico. Our administration is working with Governor (Ricardo) Rossello and Congress to identify the best fiscally responsible path forward," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

Sanders was responding to questions about a series of tweets by President Donald Trump where he appeared to question federal aid to the territory.

"Successful recoveries do not last forever; they should be as swift as possible to help people resume their normal lives," Sanders said.
