Trump Calls Puerto Rico 'One Of The Most Corrupt Places On Earth'

President Donald Trump recently called Puerto Rico “one of the most corrupt places on Earth.” This comes as the island prepares for Tropical Storm Dorian, which has now become a hurricane.

According to Reuters, the storm is now a Category 1 hurricane and is expected to hit eastern Puerto Rico.

While it prepares for the hurricane, the island is still recovering from Hurricane Maria, which hit in 2017.

Hurricane Maria killed about 3,000 people just months after it filed for bankruptcy.
