WASHINGTON (AP) - White House chief of staff John Kelly is defending President Donald Trump's commitment to the rebuilding of Puerto Rico.
    
He says at a White House briefing the U.S. will stand with Puerto Rico "until the job is done."
    
Kelly was asked about the president's tweets Thursday morning that Puerto Rico shouldn't expect federal aid to last "forever."
    
Kelly says the military and other emergency responders are trying very hard to work themselves out a job. He says the U.S. will "stand with those American citizens in Puerto Rico until the job is done."
