Nydia Velázquez, a congresswoman for Puerto Rico, had a few harsh words in response to President Trump's recent tweets regarding the country's hurricane tragedy.

"To kick fellow citizens when they are down is shameful," Rep. Velazquez passionately said.

The congresswoman sat before Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson to offer her thoughts on Trump saying that the US "cannot keep FEMA, the military, and First Responders" in Puerto Rico forever. (The Federal Emergency Management Agency was implemented in 1978, and it's in charge of responding to the disasters that occur within the country.)

In response, Velázquez held nothing back, explaining how horrible, "unpresidential," and devastating it is to hear his words at a time when countless Puerto Ricans are dying at the hands of the natural disaster.

She even highlighted the fact that she's the only Puerto Rican-American citizen on the committee, which makes his comments especially hurtful.

"Since I don't have President Trump in front of me," she said, "I would just like for you to let him know how shameful all of the tweets he put out this morning, how offended and insulted I am as an American citizen."

Then, it was time for a little history lesson for POTUS.

"I would like to suggest that the president get some history lessons regarding the Puerto Rican relationship with the United States," Velázquez said. The congresswoman explained that PR wasn't overtaken by choice, but rather by invasion of the US armed forces.

"In 1917, American citizenship was imposed on Puerto Ricans. Timely, so that they can join the armed forces and fight in World War I," she continued, proving a point that most American citizens would likely be shocked to hear.

Despite the brilliant takedown, Velázquez is smart enough to know that the history lesson probably means nothing to the president.

Instead, she simply asked for him to "show up," because that's his most basic, fundamental duty as the POTUS.
