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

Yesterday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said he wanted the issue resolved in court, as is now the case.

The moment in question came during President Trump's speech at the White House, when he proclaimed - with an affected accent - that "we love Puerto Rico".

President Donald Trump fuelled speculation Friday about his cryptic warning that this may be the "calm before the storm", further refusing to explain the comment.

"He's been very clear that that's his number one priority".

Throughout Friday's briefing, Sanders continually reiterated the White House's message that the administration does not share its actions ahead of time. Perhaps "pre-storm silence" statement was perceived as "top-down threat to North Korea and Iran" in American public.

I know his knees hurt at times and they're a little creaky, but, no, he's a really good athlete and he can manipulate the ball. With a 1-2 count and two outs in the sixth, Green's 95-mph pitch hit something before catcher Gary Sanchez snagged it.

That got a laugh from the crowd of Hispanic leaders gathered in the East Room of the White House, and Trump' s other statements of support for the recovering United States territories drew cheers.

She was clearly pleased with her look, wearing an unusually broad smile at the event at the White House, where she and the president played host to more than 200 Hispanic business, community and religious leaders. "And uh, we're gonna have a great evening, thank you all for coming".

When asked whether Trump grasps the fact that every word he says is going to matter, Christie said, "absolutely not".

Being a cheerleading poster boy for the "protect white male privilege movement", it is not surprising that President Trump would have little interest in such a place and people as Puerto Rico.
