Trump launched a Twitter war against hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico labeling the residents “lazy” and wanting the government to do everything for them. The President accused San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz of being “nasty,” after she pleaded for help.
Trump supporters have joined in the attack. Right-wing radio show host Michael Savage said Puerto Ricans were “not real Americans.”
“They should be grateful for whatever we give them,” said Savage. “I’d like to see the mayor’s green card.”
Breitbart urged Trump to stop Puerto Ricans from flooding the U.S. and living off the system.
“We should grant independence to Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and Samoa. They are a drain on the US treasury and a burden on American taxpayers,” said John Gruskos. “If they ever become states, the Democrats will permanently dominate the congress and the presidency.”
