Donald Trump makes trip to Puerto Rico all about himself - unsurprisingly

His visit was deemed as "terrible and abominable PR stunt" by San Juan's Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, where the billionaire Republican told the islanders that they should be "very proud" that more people had not died in the storm.

We hope that Trump similarly will come around to a recognition of the need to unite the country after disaster strikes, and that he will make his intentions plain in that regard when he addresses his fellow citizens in Puerto Rico tomorrow.

"What is truly nasty is that anyone would turn their back on the Puerto Rican people". "If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency".

During last year's campaign, Trump suggested the USA government could address its own debt problems by renegotiating its bonds and paying less than their face value, remarks that also raised alarms in the markets.

Puerto Rico officials have criticised the United States government's handling of the natural disaster as too slow. "And that's fine. We've saved a lot of lives".

At press time, President Trump was scheduled to visit Puerto Rico on Tuesday.

Days of frustration at what some people have said was a sluggish White House response to Hurricane Maria, which devastated much of the island last month, boiled over at the weekend when Mr Trump criticised a city mayor who had pleaded for more federal help. Trump asked, as he turned to Puerto Rico's governor, Ricardo Rossell ≥.
