Trump Says Puerto Ricans ‘Just Want Everything Done For Them’

Posted On : 09/30/2017

SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO — It’s obvious who is actually the “son of a b*tch,” after seeing what Trump has to say about the devastation in Puerto Rico. It’s clear he’s not “making America great again.”

Recently, Donald Trump addressed the issue of Puerto Rico’s hurricane devastation. And, it’s literally despicable!

On Saturday, according to Reuters, Trump has blamed Puerto Ricans for “failing to do enough” about the damage caused by Hurricane Maria.

He states that the criticism his government has received for the slow response is simply driven by politics.

Yet, according to the source, even ten days after Maria wiped out power and communications systems, more than half of the 3.4 million people are now without access to drinking water. Likewise, 95 percent remain without power.

However, rather tackling this issue with the same intensity he’s discussing the national anthem, Trump sent off several angry tweets complaining that media coverage of the suffering was “unfair,” and took aim at the mayor of San Juan.

***This man really said that they just want everything done for them. Wow!***

Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz has been living in a shelter after her home was destroyed by the hurricane, according to Reuters.

The Hill reported her, literally, begging for help.

“I will do what I never thought I was going to do. I am begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying. If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency.”

The source mentions that Cruz has stated she wasn’t attempting to be “nasty” toward Trump.

New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, a Puerto Rican-born Democrat, states:

The tweets this morning are despicable, are deplorable, are not statesman-like at all…he needs to be in charge, he needs to take control, he needs to demonstrate some level of empathy over what is happening.

However, Puerto Rico’s governor notes that the Trump administration has given Puerto Rico’s government “whatever we ask for” in the immediate aftermath of the hurricane.

Yet, in a warning, he mentions that the U.S. Congress would need to help rebuild the island.

“If Congress doesn’t take action with a significant package, then we are looking at a possible humanitarian crisis. What are the effects of falling into that predicament? Massive exodus without a doubt.”
