Puerto Ricans should put Donald Trump on a small boat and send him out to sea after the way he treated them.
Prior to even getting on his helicopter at the White House on Tuesday, Trump insulted Puerto Ricans by suggesting that they’re too lazy to help themselves.
That was bad enough. But once Trump arrived, he went full asshole and whined about how the devastation of Puerto Rico by two Category 5 hurricanes has blown up the budget and how a lot of money has been spent saving lives and helping the island recover.
“I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you are throwing our budget out of whack,” Trump said. “We spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico and that’s fine. We saved a lot of lives.”
And then Trump told them to their faces that theirs is not a “real catastrophe” and proceeded to tell them to be proud of the low death toll.
“Every death is a horror, but if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina and you look at the tremendous hundreds and hundreds of people that died and what happened here with a storm that was just totally overbearing,” Trump continued. “What is your death count?… Sixteen people certified [dead]. Sixteen people versus in the thousands. You can be very proud of all of your people.”

That’s totally a dick move, Donald. And you should be ashamed of yourself.
Basically, Trump told the people of Puerto Rico that they aren’t worth helping. He actually said this to American citizens. If Trump had said these things to the people of Florida and Texas, the outrage would be massive. Trump was supposed to go to Puerto Rico to raise their hopes, not insult them. But once again, Trump proves he is unfit to be president and he has once again turned America into an international embarrassment.
