“If you start looking at this team, we’ve got guys from the United States and from the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Puerto Rico,” he said, via Mass Live. “So I’ll use the platform the right way. Like I said before, and I know the headlines don’t show it, I say I respect the president of the United States. And I know he [helps] our country (Puerto Rico). So whenever we have to make the decision we’ll make it. And it’s going to be respected.”
A date is still to be determined.
