In an interview with Mike Huckabee for the Trinity Broadcasting Network, Trump said he’s done a “great job” helping Puerto Rico and he was j"ust having fun".
“There was a crowd of a lot of people and they were screaming and loving everything and I was having fun,” Trump said his visit to San Juan Tuesday.
“They were having fun. They were saying: ‘throw them to me, throw them to me, Mr. President. And so…the next day they said, ‘oh, it was so disrespectful to the people.’ It’s just a made up thing.”
