‘Without Me, They Would Have Been Shut Out’: Trump Tells Puerto Rico To Get On Their Knees And Praise Him

Donald Trump took to Twitter on Thursday shortly after signing a disaster relief aid package where he took another swipe at Puerto Rico and demanded that they praise him for the help.

Trump wrote on Twitter:

“Just signed Disaster Aid Bill to help Americans who have been hit by recent catastrophic storms. So important for our GREAT American farmers and ranchers. Help for GA, FL, IA, NE, NC, and CA. Puerto Rico should love President Trump. Without me, they would have been shut out!”

Trump has constantly attacked Puerto Rico and has done everything in his power to defund them the disaster aid they needed. He has even falsely claimed that the U.S. territory has received $91 billion in disaster aid already, despite the fact that official reports from the Federal Emergency Management Agency show that a mere fraction of that amount has actually been spent.

Trump also received backlash last year when he lied about the casualties in Puerto Rico due to the hurricane.

“3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico,” Trump falsely claimed. “When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000.”
