"Not just me, but many Puerto Ricans will hit the streets to demonstrate for what is correct", he said.

The men shared memes, jokes and crude sexual insults, and in one exchange chief financial officer Christian Sobrino makes homophobic references to Livin' La Vida Loca singer Martin, who was born in San Juan and is beloved on the island.

The island's largest public employees' unions called for a third march on Friday evening, saying they, too, are confident that it's only a matter of time until Puerto Rico has a new governor.

On Tuesday, the cruise line canceled the Empress of the Seas' call to San Juan as well. On Wednesday, Rossello's Twitter account shared everyday messages about government agricultural and parks programs, along with images of the governor at a cabinet meeting, but did not mention the political crisis.

The FBI arrested multiple officials in Puerto Rico Wednesday regarding a potential "payoff" scheme using American hurricane relief aid on the island following a series of natural disasters.

Protests earlier in the week turned violent, as police fired tear gas at the crowd on Monday after a fire broke out near the government headquarters.

"I strongly believe that it's possible to restore confidence and that we'll be able to reconcile after this painful and sad process".

Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello addresses the media at the Fortaleza Government headquarters, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, 16 July 2019.

Despite the scandal and the widespread calls for his resignation, Gov. Rossello has insisted that he will stay in his post, and he asserts that some of the offensive messages have been doctored. Now after being on this tiny boat for two days we now can't go to Puerto Rico. "What we're seeing right now is the Puerto Rican people finally trying to figure out what the next step is". "He has no allies anywhere", Varela added.

Gov. Rosselló has been under fire since almost 900 pages of private group chats were leaked and published by the Center for Investigative Journalism in Puerto Rico.

As a result of the leak, Secretary of State Luis Rivera Marin, who participated in the chat, resigned.
