People Are Losing It Over The Way Donald Trump Says Puerto Rico

  • President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump

The White House's battle with San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz isn't over yet.

The confusion stemmed from a statement Trump made during a photo opportunity at the White House as he posed with military leaders and their spouses Thursday night.

Many also noticed the reaction of Mr Trump's wife Melania, who was filmed at his side during the comments, initially smiling then adopting what some termed a blank expression. "Have you guys seen any change in Pakistani behaviour in those six weeks?" she was asked.

The American author and journalist said that Trump "really turned out to be a despicable character "who "escalated United States wars across the globe". Could be the calm, the calm before the storm".

Speaking outside the White House, the president weighed in on the sexual harassment scandal involving Hollywood titan Harvey Weinstein, amid reports the Democratic donor settled sexual harassment lawsuits with a number of women over the years.

"We have the world's great military people in this room, I will tell you that", Trump said in a loud but calm tone. "I encourage you to continue and eat a lot of vegetables and fruits so you grow up healthy and take care of yourself".

All of those were scored in one race, in Singapore where he was sixth out of just 12 finishers, leaving 15 other complete blanks. "I would like to thank Carlos for all his efforts over nearly three Formula 1 seasons", said Toro Rosso team boss Franz Tost .

This "should have been handled 25 years ago, it should have been handled 10 years ago, it should have been handled during the Obama administration", the president said, referring to his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama.

After being continuously pressed to clarify his comments, Trump later told reporters, "You'll find out".

The president does not have statutory authority to void any of Puerto Rico's debt, which led some optimistic distressed debt investors to interpret Trump's remarks to mean a bailout may be in the works.

The president also compared the death toll on the island to a "real catastrophe like [Hurricane] Katrina", saying officials should be very proud that only 16 people had died.

Earlier in the evening, the president had lauded the group, including his defense secretary and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and said they would be discussing the most pressing military issues facing the country, including North Korea and Iran. Or maybe this was just trump being trump.
