Doesn't President Donald Trump Say "Puerto Rico" In Such A Strange Way?

Doesn't President Donald Trump Say

And during an appearance on MSNBC's AM Joy this morning, Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) slammed the president for apparently trying to get a few laughs while Puerto Rico is struggling.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also declined to elaborate, saying: "We're never going to say in advance what the president will do". Thousands of rescue workers are now in both Puerto Rico and Mexico providing aid.

US President Donald Trump on Friday (6 October) used an exaggerated Spanish accent to pronounce "Puerto Rico" during a speech at an event celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month at the White House and Twitter couldn't stop cringing.

President Trump is sticking to his word, saying the US will not lift sanctions on Cuba.

The moment echoes Trump's celebratory Cinco de Mayo tweet from 2016 in which the then-candidate declared, "I love Hispanics!" while eating a taco bowl from the Trump Tower restaurant.

The haters saw the occasion as just another reason to rip Melania Trump, who was criticized during the president's trip to Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria... for wearing sunglasses. ".We will be there all the time to help Puerto Rico recover, restore, rebuild". For instance, during Black History Month, he explained that "Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who has done an fantastic job and is being recognized more and more, I noticed". Still, we should be grateful the president has finally noticed him.

The President also spoke about economics and the recent devastating hurricanes, two issues he clearly believes can bring the nation together.

"Puerto Rico is under a humanitarian crisis", he said on Instagram.

Aside from his statements though, people took a keen interest in the way he said "Puerto Rico" in a Spanish accent.
