President Donald Trump slammed leaders in Puerto Rico, tweeting, “they want everything done for them when it should be a community effort.”

Trump has been criticized for his response to the damage caused in the US territories by Hurricane Maria. He has defended himself, tweeting that the “fake news” has not been treating him justly and were doing everything they could to “get Trump.”

He even went so far as to blame his treatment on the Democrats. Writing, “The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.”
