Trump: “Puerto Rico, One of the Most Corrupt Places on Earth”

Donald Trump insists he is the best thing that has happened to the island.

Less than three hours apart, President Donald Trump again criticized Puerto Rico harshly, but this time he included the country’s politicians.

“Puerto Rico is one of the most corrupt places on earth. Its political system is broken and its politicians are incompetent or corrupt. Congress approved billions of dollars last time, more than anywhere else. It’s not right! …. “, the president wrote on Twitter.

He added that he was the best thing that had happened to the island, as he said before.

A little earlier, the US president pointed out that Puerto Ricans were ungrateful to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) after Hurricane Maria.

“We are following the tropical storm Dorian closely, as usual, for Puerto Rico. FEMA and everyone else are ready and will do a great job. When they do, let them know and thank them, not like the last time. This refers to the incompetent mayor of San Juan! “, the president posted on Twitter.

The comments were made while analyzing the trajectory of the tropical storm Dorian towards Puerto Rico and while the US president declared a state of emergency for the island.

The controversy returned to the public eye yesterday, Tuesday, when Trump again expressed some discontent at the imminence of Dorian and the “90 billion” approved by Congress for Puerto Rico.
