President Trump has some high praise for his own efforts concerning Puerto Rico hurricane relief.
"Between one and 10, how would you grade the White House response so far?" a reporter asked, according to NBC News. Trump, without hesitation, responded: "I'd say it was a 10. I'd say it was probably the most difficult when you talk about relief, when you talk about search, when you talk about all of the different levels, and even when you talk about lives saved..."
Trump is, in fact, right about that – Hurricane Maria left the island in total disarray.
Since the disaster hit just about a month ago, thousands in Puerto Rico have been left without clean water, shelter, and communication. The official death count was originally reported at around 48, but reports say that on-ground confirmation show it's much closer to 450.
"We were actually there before the storm hit," Trump added.
This point is especially disrespectful, considering it took the president five days to respond in any way to the storm. Plus, when he did, he went on a hateful Twitter spree:
Even worse, Trump's rating comes just one week after he threatened to pull FEMA and the military out of Puerto Rico.
Last week, Trump tweeted, "We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!" — despite the US being obligated to provide assistance to Puerto Rico.
