Trump: ‘I’ve Taken Care Better Care of Puerto Rico than Anyone Ever’

‘Puerto Rico has been taken care of better by Donald Trump than by any living human being’

EXCERPT:

TRUMP: "I’ve taken care better care of Puerto Rico than any man ever. We have $91 billion going to Puerto Rico, we have $29 billion to Texas, and $12 billion to Florida for the hurricanes. Puerto Rico has been taken care of better by Donald Trump than by any living human being. And I think the people of Puerto Rico understand it. But you do have a mayor of San Juan that, frankly, doesn’t know what she’s doing and the governor, you’ve got to spend the money wisely. They don’t know how to spend the money and they’re not spending it wisely but I’m giving them more money than they’ve ever gotten. And frankly, the people of Puerto Rico, I really have a great relationship with them. And I think, when it comes time, they really do appreciate it."
