Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton slammed President Donald Trump for his administration’s failed responses to Puerto Rico following the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria.
During an appearance on “The Tonight Show,” Clinton told host Jimmy Fallon that she implored the Trump administration to send naval assets and a hospital ship to Puerto Rico, but Trump delayed aid for weeks:
If three and a half million Americans, and Puerto Ricans are Americans, let’s make sure people remember that, you know, if they aren’t the highest priority of your government in responding to such a terrible natural disaster, what are you people spending your time doing, right? Golfing, tweeting, watching cable TV? I mean, find some time to tell the Navy to get down there, and rescue people, and provide food, and provisions, and medical care.
