The FBI is investigating multiple allegations of Puerto Rican government officials withholding FEMA supplies meant for hurricane victims.

The bureau received several complaints that local officials are distributing supplies to their friends and political supporters instead of people in need.

So far, the FBI is aware of six areas in Puerto Rico where supplies are being misappropriated.

This comes as President Trump hints he will pull first responders from the island.

In a series of tweets Thursday, the president said he will have Congress decide how much money should be allocated to the island.
