In his campaign trail, former Vice President Joe Biden has criticized Donald Trump for not showing enough respect to Puerto Ricans. Biden said, “President should need to understand a simple thing that Puerto Ricans are American citizens and they deserve the same support and respect from the government of Unites States like every other US citizen.” However, Trump has insulted Puerto Ricans and their leaders by not providing the support that is required for the recovery on the island. Trump was also unable to offer empathy or comfort during his only visit in the wake of Hurricane Maria.
Joe Biden accused Trump of his bad behavior displayed against the Puerto Ricans. “Lying about relief efforts, blocking medical aid, mocking survivors, robbing the island of the assistance - all these will remain as a stain on our nation. His irresponsible actions resulted in nearly 3000 people and more than a million who suffered in the wreckage. Even after 2 years, there is a lot to recovery to be done. We must rebuild the island and its trust to make sure Puerto Ricans always have facilities of good houses, schools, and hospitals,” he added.
Our president should be able to meet a simple test: understanding that Puerto Ricans are American citizens, and that they are entitled to—and deserve—the same support from the United States government as every citizen.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) December 5, 2019
