Kim Kardashian Responds To Donald Trump’s Puerto Rico Tweets With The Ultimate Clapback

Kim Kardashian Responds To Donald Trump’s Puerto Rico Tweets With The Ultimate Clapback

If you hopped on Twitter Saturday morning, chances are you saw a stream of tweets from or about Donald Trump. The president used his platform to criticize the leaders of Puerto Rico, who are currently recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Maria. And Kim Kardashian shut down Trump's Puerto Rico tweets with a single message that will leave you nodding your head in agreement.

After Trump posted, "To the people of Puerto Rico: Do not believe the #FakeNews! #PRStrong," Kardashian set the record straight. She prioritized what really matters here, reminding the leader of the U.S. that people still don't even have power and need more than hashtags to help. Kim K wrote,

"They don’t have power to watch the news!!! Please stop tweeting & golfing while people are dying! Please step up & help!"
     Ever since the hurricane struck Puerto Rico, Trump has been criticized for what's been viewed as delayed assistance and a lack of sympathy. For instance, it took days to waive the Jones Act, a law that limits shipping to the island. And though first responders and military have since been sent to Puerto Rico (and Trump himself is expected to go there on Tuesday), that wasn't without receiving backlash along the way, including from the mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulín Cruz.

According to The Guardian, Cruz pleaded for Trump's assistance in a press conference on Friday. She said, "So, Mr. Trump, I am begging you to take charge and save lives. After all, that is one of the founding principles of the United States of … America. If not, the world will see how we are treated not as second-class citizens but as animals that can be disposed of. Enough is enough." Meanwhile, Cruz has been photographed wading through sewage waters with a bullhorn to search for victims still trapped in their homes, showing what leadership and taking action really look like.
