Doesn't President Donald Trump Say "Puerto Rico" In Such A Strange Way?

US President Donald Trump talks of calm before the storm

"We love Puerto Rico".

The bonds recovered slightly after White House officials clarified the president's statements.

He then repeated "Puerto Rico", before switching to his usual accent to laughingly add: "And we also love Puerto Rico".

That got a laugh from the crowd of Hispanic leaders gathered in the East Room of the White House, and Trump' s other statements of support for the recovering U.S. territories drew cheers.

"What storm? "You will see what it means", said Trump, who refrain from responding to persistent questions in Iran or North Korea?".

President Trump said "Puerto Rico" in an affected Spanish accent Friday at a White House event celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.

Hispanic business, community, and faith leaders invited to join in the celebration are sure to be excused if their attention was diverted by Mrs. Trump's bold ensemble - an outfit that featured a tight-fitting white sweater and a flamenco-style red skirt with ruffles. "I know some of them, and believe me, they're very tough and they're very smart". But that's OK. I have to deal with it.

When asked about Puerto Rico's more than $70 billion in debt, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that the best thing for the island will be for it to use the normal process set up to deal with its debt.

"Puerto Rico", the president once again said, in case he made a mistake in pronunciation.

The president also waited two weeks in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria to visit Puerto Rico.
