Trump Calls Puerto Rico "Corrupt" As Storm Dorian Heads For Island

After approving an emergency declaration for Puerto Rico on Tuesday, Trump took a swipe at the U.S. territory in a tweet.

Reuters reports that President Donald Trump on Wednesday called Puerto Rico “one of the most corrupt places on earth”.

The U.S. territory is preparing for a major Tropical Storm, bringing back memories of the hurricanes two years ago.

Puerto Rico is still struggling to recover from back-to-back hurricanes in 2017, which killed about 3,000 people.
