Dem Congressman Slams Trump Using Spanish Accent to Say Puerto Rico

US will continue to put pressure on North Korea says White House

President Donald Trump talks with audience members during a Hispanic Heritage Month event in the East Room of the White House, Friday, Oct. 6, 2017, in Washington. CNN's April Ryan tried to force a conversation that Trump's visit to Puerto Rico was "controversial" - meaning the whiny San Juan mayor made a fuss.

"We are... praying for the people of Puerto Rico", Trump said in the exaggerated accent. "This is a real humanitarian crisis that going on our third week and continues to unfold".

Trump's remarks also come just days after his recent visit to Puerto Rico following the devastating Hurricane Maria drew sharp criticism over his "condescending" remarks and "shameful" paper towel throwing during the trip.

Did you know President Donald Trump speaks Spanish? No? Trump was criticized for the moment, with NyMag noting that the president appeared to be acting "a big ol' dummy who forgot what you were doing eight seconds ago". (Because what else do you do when the leader of the most powerful country cracks a bad joke?) But the internet responded a little differently. "We stand together to help you carry your pain".

"Frankly, those are the issues most Americans care about; not a lot of the things that you cover, not a lot of the petty palace intrigue that you spend your time on", she said to Acosta. At 7:18 p.m., reporters were led into the room where the military's senior leaders and their spouses were lined up with the president and first lady Melania Trump for a formal group photo. There at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Drumpf attempted his variation of "Puerto Rico", by accentuating the name (not in kind, seemingly) not once, not twice, but three times.

"The president's remarks do, however, strengthen Puerto Rico's hand in negotiations with creditors", the adviser said. Among you are leaders in government, faith, and business.
