President Donald Trump claims he’s the “best thing that’s ever happened to Puerto Rico,” the island he has repeatedly trashed during his presidency. But critics beg to differ, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).
Yet, Trump has repeatedly defended his administration’s response and attacked the island, and on Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez had had enough:
3,000 Americans died on your watch.
You’re not the best thing to happen to anybody but yourself. And even that’s questionable. https://t.co/NEoWUFd9cC

Others also slammed Trump over the bizarre claim:
I’ve never seen someone go so quickly from BLAMING the victims of hurricanes to patting himself on the back for his own miserable Katrina-like failure.
He is the WORST thing to happen to America in a long time.

Trump really has no idea that he’s president of Puerto Rico — and therefore one of “their” politicians — does he?
