But of course after he received some heavy criticism, and facts about his version of “success,” he went right back to Twitter to defend himself:
When 3,000 people died in Puerto Rico, this is how @realDonaldTrump responded… pic.twitter.com/MLl8lLPUal— Michael Skolnik (@MichaelSkolnik) September 12, 2018
Not only did he refer to Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of San Juan, as incompetent, he actually seems to want to convince people in the U.S. that he has everything under control for the upcoming hurricane. It’s crazy to think that Trump actually sees the recovery efforts as a success, and continues to drag Puerto Rico at a time where the island still needs help, all while a stockpile of water was photographed sitting on a field. The same water that was supposed to be distributed to the people of Puerto Rico by FEMA. The same water that would have been helpful when people didn’t have clean water to drink or bathe with.
We got A Pluses for our recent hurricane work in Texas and Florida (and did an unappreciated great job in Puerto Rico, even though an inaccessible island with very poor electricity and a totally incompetent Mayor of San Juan). We are ready for the big one that is coming!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 12, 2018
Definitely not what I would define as successful. But as usual, Trump’s delusions of grandeur and narcissism won’t let him think otherwise. But god bless him for those rolls of paper towels.
