'We love Pueeeeerto Rico': Trump exaggerates Spanish accent, Twitter says ouch

Sanders Puerto Rico Debt Will Go Through a Process

Putting a heavy emphasis on the "Pu" in "Puerto Rico", Trump repeated his bad pronunciation of the USA territory's name not once, not twice, but three times, concluding the performance with a self-satisfied smile and reverting back to his Americanized pronunciation of the name.

Corker told reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary James Mattis and White House chief of staff John Kelly were helping the Trump administration to maintain some order amid increasing chaos.

Speaking to a crowd of representatives from over 200 Hispanic businesses, community and faith groups gathered in the East Room of the White House, Trump drew out the vowels in the name of the U.S. territory three times.

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


Reporters asked what he meant and Trump said: "It could be, the calm, the calm before the storm".

President Trump said "Puerto Rico" in an affected Spanish accent Friday at a White House event celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. Among you are leaders in government, faith, and business. Sometimes they're too tough. But that's OK. I have to deal with it. But that's OK. I have to deal with it.

The President also spoke about economics and the recent devastating hurricanes, two issues he clearly believes can bring the nation together.

"Puerto Rico is just a simple math 101 question", Bass said in a Bloomberg Television interview Friday.
