Donald Trump unleashed a late night tweetstorm to attack Puerto Rico, the U.S. territory that is still devastated from Hurricane Maria. Then, this morning, he continued to rant about the island and its politicians. This was just before he sent out some mean-girl tweets to attack Democrats over special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, even though the public has not seen it yet. As for Puerto Rico, a recent study reveals that “the federal response was faster and ‘more generous’ in terms of funding and staffing for Hurricane Irma in Florida and Harvey in Texas than for Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.”

But Trump is upset that Puerto Rico still needs help after the island was devastated. The former reality show star claims that Puerto Rico is taking money from the United States even though the self-governing island is a U.S. territory.

“Puerto Rico got 91 Billion Dollars for the hurricane, more money than has ever been gotten for a hurricane before, & all their local politicians do is complain & ask for more money,” Trump tweeted. “The pols are grossly incompetent, spend the money foolishly or corruptly, & only take from USA….”

Then, he once again claimed that he’s the “best thing to ever happen to Puerto Rico.”

“The best thing that ever happened to Puerto Rico is President Donald J. Trump,” the president tweeted. “So many wonderful people, but with such bad Island leadership and with so much money wasted. Cannot continue to hurt our Farmers and States with these massive payments, and so little appreciation!”

Those tweets followed his tweetstorm last night in which he singled out San Juan’s mayor, a woman who has been critical of him.

“….the crazed and incompetent Mayor of San Juan have done such a poor job of bringing the Island back to health,” he wrote last night. “91 Billion Dollars to Puerto Rico, and now the Dems want to give them more, taking dollars away from our Farmers and so many others. Disgraceful!”

Trump created havoc with his trade war so he’s trying to continue to fund farmers whose income has been ruined from the president’s actions. Trump created a mess and now he wants to give it a temporary fix, then claim that he saved the day. Checkmate, liberals!

As for the leadership in Puerto Rico, someone needs to remind Donald Trump that he is their president.

Conover makes tea partiers cry as a hobby. She was Commander of Jade Helm15 during the failed takeover of the South. She's also one of the biggest arseholes on Twitter. At night, she can be found drinking Conservative tears while pulling off the wings of flies just because she can. She is the founder of a Marxist, Commie, Maoist, Socialist site and has contributed to several other sites, blah blah blah. She is an awful person but she doesn't like to brag about that.
