The President has repeatedly said Puerto Rico has been given too much money by the federal government - often using incorrect numbers on the exact figures.
Congress approved $41 billion in aid for the island; so far, about $13 billion has been delivered to Puerto Rico.
The latest installment of $8 billion in housing aid was approved earlier this year by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, but the money has not been released to the government of Puerto Rico.
With the President blaming Democrats for the impasse, Senate Democrats have complained that negotiations with the President over the disaster aid measure have been like nailing jello to the wall - with the wall, and the goal posts often moving during talks.
The House is scheduled to vote Friday on a $17 billion disaster relief bill, which includes $400 million to rebuild Tyndall Air Force Base.
Lawmakers will also vote on an amendment increase that amount of money; that plan is being offered by Rep. Neal Dunn (R-FL), whose district includes Tyndall Air Force Base.
As the President flew to Florida on Wednesday, it was still obvious that Tyndall was devastated by some of the most powerful portions of the hurricane.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday that he hoped an aid package could get through the Congress before Memorial Day.
