Like a threat from Trump: Silence before the Storm

Melania Trump stood behind her husband today as he delivered remarks at an event honoring Hispanic Heritage Month.

Citizens of Puerto Rico, not to worry. "This is a real humanitarian crisis that going on our third week and continues to unfold".

President Donald Trump said on Tuesday while on a trip to Puerto Rico to observe hurricane recovery efforts that the island's debt would have to be wiped out.

While the moment garnered chuckles from attendees at the speech, it didn't take long for Trump's presumed mockery of the Spanish language and Puerto Rican people to spark heavy criticism online.

Not only the moral ground, but also in a better position to guide negotiations. Tillerson , however, was quick to push back against any comparisons.

When asked again what he meant, Trump said only: "You'll find out".

President Donald Trump delivered a foreboding message, telling reporters as he posed for photos with senior military leaders that this might be "the calm before the storm". (Because what else do you do when the leader of the most powerful country cracks a awful joke?) But the internet responded a little differently.

Trump said that all forces that undermine U.S. national interests must already be destroyed, and that it remains to be done. Trump asked reporters in the State Dining Room. Now each individual citizen of Puerto Rico can start your own electric company, drill your own well and build a new roof over your heads all because of the gift of paper towels.

"The president's remarks do, however, strengthen Puerto Rico's hand in negotiations with creditors", the adviser said.

She was clearly pleased with her look, wearing an unusually broad smile at the event at the White House, where she and the president played host to more than 200 Hispanic business, community and religious leaders.
