proposed this long before we knew the tropical storm dorian was headed toward puerto rico. could you make the argument there is a humanitarian crisis at the border, but just potential new damage in puerto rico. president trump has declared an emergency for puerto rico, authorizing fema to start emergency relief. a few minutes ago he criticized either the storm's path or puerto rico's position in the ocean. we're tracking closely tropical storm dorian as it heads, as usual, to puerto rico. fema and all others are ready and will do a great job, and then they could, let them know it. give them a big thank you, not like last time. that includes the incompetent mayor of san juan. we'll be watching the situation, tweeting about it. marcus, i know you have your eye on it as well. >> that's right, scott. new images showing the heavy flooding from dorian in martinique is looking more and more like dorian may cross directly over puerto rico and may reach hurricane strength when it passes. dorian is expected to arrive by midday. people who live there are nerve
