Tensions rise after Trump talks of 'calm before storm'

And during an appearance on MSNBC's AM Joy this morning, Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) slammed the president for apparently trying to get a few laughs while Puerto Rico is struggling.

"Puerto Rico is just a simple math 101 question", Bass said in a Bloomberg Television interview Friday.

President Donald Trump hosted a Hispanic Heritage Month event at the White House on Friday, saying Hispanic-Americans are "a vital part of the fabric of this nation". "We're going to continue doing that as a team with the president leading that effort", she said.

"I think the president is the one that's keeping the world from chaos", Sanders said. Is it us just falling for Donald Trump's flair for the dramatic?

He then repeated "Puerto Rico", before switching to his usual accent to laughingly add: "And we also love Puerto Rico". Our president is an global embarrassment, a betrayal of some of our nation's most treasured values - equality, respect and tolerance. For instance, during Black History Month, he explained that "Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who has done an fantastic job and is being recognized more and more, I noticed".

Over the years, the United States has been hit by plenty of natural calamities, and while all presidents did an exemplary job during those crises, Donald Trump's decision to donate $1 million out of his funds comes as a magnificent gesture. While there, he joked that recovery costs had "thrown our budget a little of whack", and encouraged leaders to compare the death toll to "a real catastrophe like [Hurricane] Katrina".

Donald Trump has come under fire already this week when in a freaky move, he threw paper towels into an audience of Puerto Rican people.

After this latest stunt, the internet was quick to call him out as "insensitive", "mocking" and "prejudiced".
