A broadcast quality video can be found here.
 
“I’m not going to opine on whether Governor Rosselló should resign because I’m not a voter in Puerto Rico, he’s not accountable to me. What I can tell you, as a Federal official who cares a lot about Puerto Rico and its future, is that this controversy has made it more difficult to work on behalf of Puerto Rico. And I can tell you that as long as Governor Rosselló is in his position it’s going to make it difficult, it’s going to be hard to get passed some of these things. We’re going to continue to do everything we can, because I don’t believe that the people of Puerto Rico should be punished for the wrongdoings of politicians. It’s certainly harder because of this controversy, and as long as Governor Rosselló is in the Governor’s mansion.”     
 

RUBIO: LOS PUERTORRIQUEÑOS NO DEBEN SER CASTIGADOS POR LOS ERRORES DE LOS POLÍTICOS
 

Washington, D.C. – Hoy, el senador estadounidense Marco Rubio (R-FL) publicó un video sobre los llamados para que el gobernador Ricardo Rosselló renuncie tras acusaciones de corrupción en su gobierno.
 
Aquí podrá encontrar un video con calidad de transmisión de la reunión.
 
“Yo no voy a opinar sobre si el Gobernador Rosselló debe renunciar, eso no me corresponde a mi. Yo no soy votante en Puerto Rico. Pero si soy un oficial federal que le interesa mucho el futuro de Puerto Rico y los asuntos de Puerto Rico. Le puedo decir con toda sinceridad que esta controversia está afectando la habilidad de poder ayudar a Puerto Rico y pienso que mientras el gobernador Rosselló esté en esa posición va ser muy difícil la tarea de abogar y ayudar a Puerto Rico. Seguiremos haciendo todo lo posible, no creo que el pueblo de Puerto Rico debe sufrir por los errores de los políticos, pero sin duda la tarea es más difícil mientras que el sigue en el poder”.
