after a devastating category 5 hurricane in puerto Rico, Trump claims puerto Ricans "want everything to be done for them"
[link to www.cnn.com]


What's more remarkable than Donald Trump -- aka the commander in chief, aka the most most powerful person in the country -- tapping out 18 tweets on a single subject in less than 12 hours is the tone of those tweets: Negative, defensive and dark.
It all began with Trump's slashing attack on San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, who has become the face of the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico -- thanks in no small part to her interview Friday on CNN's "New Day" in which she angrily denounced attempts by the Trump White House to present the situation in Puerto Rico as a "good news story."
Trump, already worried about the perception that he and his administration have responded inadequately to the situation, responded to Yulin Cruz the only way he knows how: Viciously.
"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," Trump began just after 7 a.m. ET. "Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help," he added. "They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort. 10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job."
At a time of crisis for more than 3 million Americans living in Puerto Rico, their President decided to pick a fight with a local official due to her frustration with the recovery efforts. Rather than send a tweet urging patience (or maybe not tweeting at all!), Trump decided the best course of action was to go after Yulin Cruz and "others in Puerto Rico" for their allegedly poor job in dealing with Hurricane Maria.
The words Trump used are telling. "They want everything to be done for them," he tweeted. "They"? You mean the millions of American citizens in Puerto Rico?

Dont rely on the Government to take care of you, simple as that

Especially, the Governor and mayor of Puerto Rico

they are low lives, who hate Trump and will kill their own people in hopes of the Democrats winning the next election

You know the Democrats are telling them to with hold the supplies

There is a movement in the United States wherein people will help people in a natural disaster when they are helping themselves.

The last person anyone wants to help is a person who COULD do something but wants everyone else to do it for them.

If P. R. wants people to help, they better straighten up and fly right.

And you best show our President some respect. He is the one who sent you all that crap.

And the American taxpayers are footing the bill by mortgaging our kids futures. What was not taken by Obama.

So show some appreciation.

Where did people get it in their minds that when a disaster strike, it's governments job to ERASE the entire disaster?

hundreds of years ago, if a disaster happens to YOU, it was not somebody elses job to swoop in from afar and magically rebuild your life for you.

That being said, I am all FOR helping people to a reasonable degree. But for ingrates to bitch and moan that Big Brother isn't changing their diapers for them and sticking people from thousands of miles away with ALL the bills, sounds like a gross sense of entitlement.

The traditional mindset of American has been to ALWAYS offer a hand up, but never a hand out.

It's why we're the most charitable people on the planet.

The creation of the welfare state has meant that entire generations have now been raised to expect hand outs. People are finally getting fed up and we have a POTUS who is going to fix it by slowly changing the gimme attitude. Teach those groups about pride in a job well-done and about self-respect. I'm not sure how far he'll get with it in the time he has, but he has begun the narrative. It's up to us to get it to take root and grow.
