Trump Waives U.S. Shipping Restrictions For Puerto Rico, More  Aid On The Way

U.S. President Donald Trump waived shipping restrictions on Thursday to help get fuel and supplies to storm-ravaged Puerto Rico, the White House said.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a Twitter post that Trump, at the request of Puerto Rican Governor Ricardo Rossello, "has authorized the Jones Act be waived for Puerto Rico. It will go into effect immediately."

The Jones Act limits shipping between coasts to U.S.-flagged vessels.
