In a tweet this morning, President Donald Trump attacked Puerto Rico and threatened to pull emergency responders from the island according to NBC News.

President Donald Trump slammed Puerto Rico Thursday, threatening to pull emergency management workers from the storm-ravaged island — drawing immediate wrath from furious Democrats who charged he is treating Americans there like "second-class citizens." Trump's tweets come just weeks after Puerto Rico was slammed by Hurricane Maria. FEMA said that as of Tuesday, 21 days since Maria made landfall, 84 percent of people on the island remained without electricity and that 63 percent of Puerto Ricans had potable water. Many others have been without housing and basic necessities.
