Donald Trump pronounced 'Puerto Rico' in such a unusual way

  • President Donald Trump speaks before signing a National Manufacturing Day Proclamation in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington Friday Oct. 6 2017

Donald Trump and Melania Trump host a Hispanic Heritage Month event at the White House on October 6.

He then repeated "Puerto Rico", before switching to his usual accent to laughingly add: "And we also love Puerto Rico".

Earlier this week, at a White House event to kick off Hispanic Heritage Month, President Donald Trump mentioned Puerto Rico and how the island and its people are in his thoughts as it struggles through a humanitarian crisis in the wake of Hurricane Maria. He used his time on the former talking about tax reform, which he said will be a benefit to all US citizens and business owners. "Maybe it's the calm before the storm", Trump said, following a meeting with his top military commanders.

"Do you know what this means, while US President Donald Trump poses with soldiers at a meeting with senior defence officials?" For instance, during Black History Month, he explained that "Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who has done an wonderful job and is being recognized more and more, I noticed". Still, we should be grateful the president has finally noticed him. He did all right when responding to the emergencies in Texas and Florida, but Puerto Rico is different, apparently. He also compared their death toll to that of Hurricane Katrina and said the Puerto Ricans should be "proud" only 16 of their people were killed.

While the moment garnered chuckles from attendees at the speech, it didn't take long for Trump's presumed mockery of the Spanish language and Puerto Rican people to spark heavy criticism online.
