As promised, Donald Trump visited Puerto Rico and it was interesting to say the least.
Donald told the U.S. citizens of Puerto Rico that they “should be very proud” that only an estimated 16 people died in contrast to the hundreds of people that died in “a real catastrophe like Katrina.”
“Every death is a horror,” Trump said, “but if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina and you look at the tremendous — hundreds and hundreds of people that died — and you look at what happened here with, really, a storm that was just totally overpowering … no one has ever seen anything like this.”
After downplaying Hurricane Maria that left the island powerless and completely destroyed, he downplayed the death poll some more.
16 people certified,” Trump said. “Sixteen people versus in the thousands. You can be very proud of all of your people and all of our people working together. Sixteen versus literally thousands of people. You can be very proud. Everybody watching can really be very proud of what’s taken place in Puerto Rico.
