    Trump is a racist.
    He is not very well educated and is likely personally unaware of the relationship between the US federal government and either Puerto Rico or the US Virgin Islands.
    He has the mentality of a third world dictator who insists that he is the best, his inauguration was the biggest and his relief efforts are the best ever seen.
    Trump has no concept of compassion or class.
    Trump is a mentally ill old man, suffering from malignant narcissism, while also being devoid of ethics or morals.

    He is the most corrupt and incompetent POTUS we have ever elected.

    People will literally die because of this man's failures and flaws.

    If you ever needed to know how big of a Bum the Bum is, he made his critical remarks towards the Mayor of San Juan from his golf resort in NJ!!!! Isn't it rich?

    Please, Mr. Mueller, finish your work quickly. The nation is in deep, deep trouble.

    I can't stomach people I have known my whole life still supporting this dirtbag president. Saying that PR is exaggerating??!

    I may take a FB break.

    I see less and less support of the Bum on my Facebook feed, whether this is because we have all unfriended each other, or he has less support. Either way, I am fine with that.

    Some one who works in my department to going to PR next week, he works with an agency that installs low cost water filtration units. so I of course will be chipping in to help cover his costs.

    I have been watching CNN and I was so struck by the visual difference in 2 tragedies.

    In Puerto Rico, he showed up in casual clothes, FLOTUS was wearing a baseball cap. He was rude to the Mayor of San Juan and then I cringed when he tossed paper towels at hurricane victims.

    The next day in Las Vegas, he was in dark suit, tie and FLOTUS in black dress. The motorcade looked like a funeral procession. Nurses I heard from at UMC said both were very kind and the trauma patients did appreciate the visit.

    In my brain, this man has no use for Puerto Rico because they are an island made up of many Spanish speaking folks who are brown...

    Everyone on this thread knows I have no use for the Bum, but nurseactivist, I almost feel like need to defend his clothing choices!

    To be fair, he and Melania did wear casual clothing in TX and FL and for good reasons. So I think it was wholly appropriate to wear casual clothing in PR.

    And honestly, LV is a funeral procession.

    I don't disagree that the Bum has no use for PR. His comments made that very clear. I do like that the Mayor of San Juan is wearing a "Nasty" t-shirt. She gets it!

    I found his lack of decorum and empathy staggering. He passed out flashlights and laughed that the recipients didn't need them anymore. He can't get past the debt. Not enough brown people died for it to register as a real disaster to the sheltered wealthy man with no compassion.

    This guy is not capable of functioning as a president. He continues to prove that he is an empty suit. A television personality who is always looking for a hook and a ratings boost. Unfortunately, he thinks starting a war with NK is exactly what his soap opera needs.
