Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello Sunday called on a government board to cancel a $300 million contract with the Montana company Whitefish Energy to rebuild the hurricane-ravaged island's power grid. Rossello said the contract became a distraction after members of Congress and FEMA raised concerns. Whitefish had only two full-time employees when Maria made landfall, and the company's largest project before this was a $1.3 million contract in Arizona.

Update: Puerto Rico's power authority says it will end the contract once ongoing work is completed. [Go deeper: A breakdown of the contract]

President Trump's crackdown on TikTok suggests that the U.S. government is starting to see the internet more like China does — as a network that countries can and should control within their borders.

The big picture: Today's global internet has split into three zones, according to many observers: The EU's privacy-focused network; China's government-dominated network; and the U.S.-led network dominated by a handful of American companies. TikTok's fate suggests China's model has U.S. fans as well.
