Trump slams Puerto Rico as impending storm intensifies

Source: CNN

President Donald Trump is already picking a fight with Puerto Rican officials as a tropical storm barrels toward the island, showing insensitivity to Americans still recovering from one crisis and facing another.

"We are tracking closely tropical storm Dorian as it heads, as usual, to Puerto Rico. FEMA and all others are ready, and will do a great job. When they do, let them know it, and give them a big Thank You - Not like last time. That includes from the incompetent Mayor of San Juan!" Trump tweeted from the White House Wednesday morning.

Later Wednesday, he continued to slam the territory's government and praise himself.

"Puerto Rico is one of the most corrupt places on earth. Their political system is broken and their politicians are either Incompetent or Corrupt. Congress approved Billions of Dollars last time, more than anyplace else has ever gotten, and it is sent to Crooked Pols. No good!" he wrote, adding, "And by the way, I'm the best thing that's ever happened to Puerto Rico!"

6. "their politicians are either Incompetent or Corrupt"

Does the old adage "it takes one to know one" seem worth mentioning here?

12. That's just his projection M.O. again.

Whatever evil shit he's doing, says it about someone else.

He's done this now, 100+ times?

I'm figuring the Russians have tape of him actually fucking Ivanka?

Just speculation, but we are long past just WTF corruption?

14. Hurricane Dorian, Puerto Rico

 

Hurricane Dorian spared the Puerto Ricans as it knows that Donald Trump has been bad enough to them..The Hurricane changed its course and set a new one toward Florida a place that is much worthy for Trump.Feel bad for people of florida but it might do one thing, clean the bed bugs of Trump's hotel..

15. No Trump, they are not corrupt. YOU ARE THE ONE WHO'S CORRUPT.

They are honest, hard working class people who like many, can't get ahead because if it's one thing it's another that keeps them down. They didn't have a rich Daddy that left them a lot of money which was squandered like you did; while you steal from working class people who perform work for you and have to take you to court to get paid, or are forced to settle for half the wages that they bargained for with you, because you are so corrupt.
