Trump Makes Signing Disaster Relief Bill All About Himself, Tells Puerto Ricans They Should “Love Him”

What a psychopath. He did everything possible to block this bill and then brags about how he saved the people of Puerto Rico after he gave in to Democrat demands. What a loser!

Despite attempts from various Republicans – Donald Trump finally signed the bipartisan 19.1 billion disaster relief package that passed the House on Monday. And after taking 6 months of blocking funding for the bill because he wanted to include funding for his border wall and reducing funding for Puerto Rico – el Presidente decided to take credit for all the funding he rejected for Puerto Rico the past 6 months:

“Just signed Disaster Aid Bill to help Americans who have been hit by recent catastrophic storms. So important for our GREAT American farmers and ranchers. Help for GA, FL, IA, NE, NC, and CA. Puerto Rico should love President Trump. Without me, they would have been shut out!”

Seeing himself lagging in polls in nearly all of these states – Trump agreed to sign the legislation — directed at providing funding to restoration efforts in areas impacted wildfires, hurricanes, and flooding despite having demanded that Congress include $4.5 billion for more border funding.  Because when Trump said Mexico was going to pay for the wall – he meant you dummy.  Instead of pissing off voters in all of these states – he chose the path of least resistance for once.

Democrats pushed for and received $900 million for Puerto Rico despite Trump’s opposition which he now takes credit for of course.  Puerto Rico will receive an additional $600 million for food stamps and an extra $300 million for Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Trump had long been against the disaster bill unless it included $4.5 billion for his border wall and the disaster recovery bill had stalled in Congress until Republicans in the Senate negotiated with Trump getting him to sign the bill.

Twitter called him out for being a huge hypocrite and liar:
