    All people around him should stop being nice to him and teach him how a decent adult should act, he was never taught that apparently

    Only someone with NO basic empathy would tell Hurricane survivors that they’re “putting the budget out of whack”.

    I need to share this with every old person online who tells me to do my research on my own island but also asks me why we don’t ask other countries for help.

    Donald Trump has to be double jointed…. there’s no way you can pat yourself on your own back that much without breaking your own arm.

    Puerto Rico, you’re in an abusive relationship with the US.
    Get out, save yourselves!

  14. Kevin Xavier says:

    Oh! Oh! You also forgot that Puerto Ricans are not eligible for the U.S. Election!

    Hearing about Puerto Rico’s endemic poverty, I feel so helpless. Sure, we can help them recover from the hurricane (and we *really* should be getting on that Donald), but how do you fix these systemic problems? You either keep taxes so low that the island can’t benefit from business moving in, or you have regular tax levels and deal with nobody having a business there. Maybe invest in a strong education system, from K-12 to college, and develop programs like Stanford has that fosters STEM-based start-ups, and make sure you have strong worker’s rights/unions to make sure the profit of these companies doeesn’t get clustered among a small few (and also maybe undo the Jones Act, which I believe is now suspended)? How would they do this given their current debt?

    Modern day slavery !!!

    Trump is actually right this time. Puerto Rico is an island, and it really is surrounded by water.Those are both cold, hard facts! It looks like Trump really did his homework on this one.

  18. Jeff the Marmo says:

    Melania always sits quietly next to him ~ and looks like she wishes she was somewhere else……

  19. Swnsasy _ says:

    *face palm* I really don’t understand how most Americans don’t know this.. Ooh wait, we spend almost a trillion dollars on wars and take 9 billion dollar cuts to education.. We are #1 in many areas though.. Just not ANY good ones..

    I bet if the ship to Puerto Rico was his buddy William Levitt’s yacht, he’d have shown up lickety-split.
