White House fails to explain Trump's 'calm before the storm' comment

039;Nothing has changed' between Trump and Tillerson White House

Sanders talked right over Reid and said that the San Juan mayor made "zero comments" when President Trump opened the table for discussion during his visit to PR. Trump's budget director, Mick Mulvaney, said Wednesday morning - as Puerto Rico's bond prices sunk to a record low - not to take Trump literally.

As seen in the below video, Trump pulled out his Spanish accent three times to pronounce Puerto Rico, in a way that a Puerto Rican might pronounce the name of the USA territory, during a Hispanic Heritage Month event in the East Room of the White House on Friday, October 6.

If you enjoy watching CNN get slapped as much as I do, here's the video.

It wasn't all mispronunciations on Friday, however.




Trump also used the speech to praise Hispanic Americans, saying, "Today we're grateful to have more than a quarter of a million Hispanic-Americans serving in our military".

'You teach our children. (Because what else do you do when the leader of the most powerful country cracks a bad joke?) But the internet responded a little differently. You protect our communities and you defend our nation. Former presidents, many celebrities, and non-profit organizations have been raising money for PR, and you can help too by donating to the Hispanic Federation, or finding local charities or drives in your area.

The cash-strapped island's 2035 8% bonds traded down to 32 cents on the dollar last Wednesday, down 12.5 points from the previous day after Trump said the debt had to be wiped out. "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. But that's OK. I have to deal with it.
