Almost two weeks after Hurricane Maria ripped through Puerto Rico, President Donald Trump will be making his way to the island to asses the damage. After using Twitter to promote his upcoming trip, critics of the president took time to lash out.

Trump on Puerto Rico

In recent weeks, multiple hurricanes have touched down in various parts of the United States, causing damage that could take years for the impacted areas to overcome. The first major storm to strike this past summer was Hurricane Harvey, which hit the state of Texas, with the city of Houston being hurt worst of all.

Just weeks later and Hurricane Irma moved through Cuba and landed in the southern part of Florida, which caused massive damage all the way up the Sun Shine State. Following those storms, it was Hurricane Maria that made landfall in Puerto Rico. With winds over 100 mph, the storm left thousands without water or electric, resulting in dozens of deaths. Donald Trump was slow to respond to the news, with many Americans not happy with how the president handled the aftermath of the storm. With the commander in chief planning a trip to the island next week, he was quick to highlight the issue during a series of tweets on September 28.

Taking to Twitter on Friday morning, Donald Trump spoke about the current situation on the ground in Puerto Rico, as well as when the people can expect him to arrive.

"Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello just stated: 'The Administration and the President, every time we've spoken, they've delivered,'" Trump tweeted out. "The fact is that Puerto Rico has been destroyed by two hurricanes," the president continued, before adding, "Big decisions will have to be made as to the cost of its rebuilding!"

Not stopping there, Donald Trump then gave a shout out to FEMA before confirming his trip to the island.

"Thank you to FEMA, our great Military & all First Responders who are working so hard,against terrible odds,in Puerto Rico," Trump posted, while adding, "See you Tuesday!"

Not long after Donald Trump sent out his tweets on the hurricane in Puerto Rico, those who oppose the president wasted no time in responding.

"Why the heck has it taken you so long to finally decide to make your way to Puerto Rico next week. Is it because you owe them so much money?" one tweet wondered.

"I'm sure Putin's number is on speed dial, you know, on that burner phone you have under your mattress!" another Twitter user wrote.

"You are neglecting American citizens. People need to receive the supplies that are sitting in shipping containers untouched," an additional tweet read.

"I feel the people of (PR) probably could care less if you go. The only reason you are going is to save face and no other reason," yet another tweet added. "You are the worse. the only president under which @CarnivalCruise and @RoyalCaribbean respond faster to a hurricane than our White House," another tweet read. As the backlash poured in, it became clear that many Americans were not pleased with how Donald Trump has handled the disaster in Puerto Rico.
