Meyers: Trump’s Response to Puerto Rico Is His ‘Cruel Racism’ at Work
MEYERS: "This is the cruel racism of Donald Trump at work. When the victims of hurricanes in Florida and Texas needed help, he didn't hesitate. But when the victims are people of color, and when the critics challenging him are women of color, his reaction is to insult them, drag his feet on sending help, and bring up financial issues. For example, no one ever asked how Texas and Florida would pay for their recoveries, but Trump has repeatedly raised the issue with Puerto Rico. Tweeting about its massive debt, and the billions of dollars owed to Wall Street and the banks, which sadly, must be dealt with. And then at the same time, his own administration is pushing forward on a plan that will help the rich. A giant tax cut."
