Trump Talks Latinas, Says 'Puerto Rico' 3 Times With Spanish Accent

09 October, 2017, 00:27 | Author: Lula Armstrong
  • President Donald Trump speaks before signing a National Manufacturing Day Proclamation in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington Friday Oct. 6 2017

As seen in the below video, Trump pulled out his Spanish accent three times to pronounce Puerto Rico, in a way that a Puerto Rican might pronounce the name of the US territory, during a Hispanic Heritage Month event in the East Room of the White House on Friday, October 6.

Considering what happened just a few days ago when he was on the hurricane-ravaged island. ya gotta question the judgment in doing this.

He made the comments from the east room of the White House Friday as he hosted a celebration for Hispanic Heritage Month. "The president wants it to go through that process, and that's the stage we're at on that". "If the president has a view that the bonds should not be repaid it's a powerful argument".


Here's your Friday reminder that President Trump doesn't have the character required to be anywhere near the White House. "We are not going to bail them out", Mulvaney said. We're going to have to wipe that out. Trump imitated the accent not once, not twice, but three times, telling the crowd, "We love Puerto Rico", before ending sans accent with: "And we also love Puerto Rico".

The moment echoes Trump's celebratory Cinco de Mayo tweet from 2016 in which the then-candidate declared, "I love Hispanics!" while eating a taco bowl from the Trump Tower restaurant. During his trip, Donald Trump used what the Hill called "an unusual method of distributing supplies" while visiting a church in Puerto Rico. In his maiden address to the UN General Assembly last month, Trump said that no nation on Earth had an interest in seeing "this band of criminals" arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles. "Could be the calm, the calm before the storm".

Hurricane Maria's devastation of the island casts doubt that it will be able to afford the payments in the near term given government funds will likely be spent on the recovery.
