Following Criticism, Trump Calls Puerto Rican People 'Wonderful'

Wochit Headline News - Friday, 13 October 2017  (1 week ago)
On Friday, President Donald Trump praised the people of Puerto Rico, calling them "wonderful" and having an "unmatched spirit" as the US territory continues to struggle following the devastation of Hurricane Maria. However, Trump's comments come just one day after Trump tweeted criticisms of Puerto Rico's economic problems, claiming that power and other infrastructures on the island before the hurricanes and added that FEMA and other federal relief personnel could not be on the island "forever." Trump has faced harsh criticism for the slow response of his administration, seen by many critics as less agile than it would have been for a similarly devastated region of the U.S. mainland, and for bringing up the cost of relief efforts while visiting the island earlier this month.
