Puerto Ricans Say “Donald Trump treated us like Dogs”
President Donald Trump is a big bully and treats everyone without any respect but he in return expects respect. He wants media should hail him. Upon visiting Florida, he did not leave as good of an impression as he thought he did. He threw paper towels into a desperate crowd, making disgusted expressions at their water, and cracking jokes.
This kind of behaviour is not expected from a person who is the President of the United States. And it is totally unacceptable.
Puerto Ricans claimed that Trump handled them like second-class citizens. Joel Isaac, a Puerto Rican presently living in New York said to The Toronto Star, “He arrives with a smile on his face, makes fun of the situation, shows no empathy, lies and lies on camera as he does 24-7. And then throws paper towel rolls to people in need as if he was playing Go Fetch with dogs.”
A Puerto Rican living in North Carolina, Frances Alvarado, told reporters, “Does he think this is a show? A game? The first reaction that I had: why is he throwing things to Puerto Ricans like we’re animals?”
Moreover, Trump insinuated that he won’t be able to help Puerto Rico since they owe the U.S a lot of money.
“You’ve thrown our budget a little out of whack,” Trump said on Tuesday. “because we’ve spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico.”
Alvardo is right in his every word. His emotions are relatable with every American. Trump’s behaviour couldn’t be worse when it comes to treating people with respect.
