People Are Losing It Over The Way Donald Trump Says Puerto Rico

Everyone has their opinion on Donald Trump, and that's fair, but for the most part we just have to sit tight and accept that he is president.

However, he recently held an event at the White House to kick off Hispanic Heritage Month that has raised a few eyebrows.

He gave a speech to begin the event, touching on a number of topics, including the recent mass shooting in Las Vegas. He also mentioned Hurricane Maria, which recently swept through the island of Puerto Rico.

Aside from his statements though, people took a keen interest in the way he said 'Puerto Rico' in a Spanish accent.

In an exaggerated accent he said: "We are also praying for the people of Puerto Rico.

"We love Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico."

He went on to reply to a woman who shouted: "We love you," saying: "And we love Puerto Rico," this time refraining from trying to be Hispanic.

According to NBC News, Maria is the most powerful storm to hit Puerto Rico in almost a century and it could take half a year to restore power.

Trump aided the people of the country, throwing toilet rolls at them.

Famous musician Pitbull also helped the islanders, ending a private jet so that cancer patients could leave.

Jenniffer González, Congresswoman for Puerto Rico, thanked the musician for his help, writing: "Thanks to singer @pitbull for lending private plane to transfer cancer patients from Puerto Rico to the United States so that they can take their chemo."

Fellow musician, and a Puerto Rico native, Daddy Yankee, also used his status to get help for the island.

The 'Despacito' singer took to Instagram and appeared on CNN to raise his voice for the humanitarian crisis. He also revealed that he'll be donating $1million (£747K) to help rebuild the island.

"Puerto Rico is under a humanitarian crisis," he said on Instagram.

"We're running out of food, we're running out of provisions, we're running out of gas, we're running out of medicines. So this is a call to action to the international community to act now. We need your help more than ever."

Jenniffer González also thanked Yankee, quoting his tweet and writing: "Thank you for your commitment to your island, your work and help your people in the toughest moments. Puerto Rico loves you and holds you."
