On Tuesday, Donald Trump stopped in Puerto Rico for the first time since Hurricane Maria ripped through the island. After a controversial visit, the president wasn't happy with how the media reported on what took place.

Trump in Puerto Rico

Two weeks ago, Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico. In its aftermath, the entire island lost power, as food and water quickly became scarce. The damage was so sever that experts have predicated that it will take the island decades to full recover. As of press time, at least 34 deaths have bee confirmed, with thousands being forced to flee their homes in the process.

Back in the continental United States, it took Donald Trump nearly a week to address the situation, as he was focusing on his feud with the National Football League (NFL). When Trump did response via social media, he made sure to bring up the "massive debt" that the island owes to the Wall Street. After making insulting remarks to the Mayor of San Juan in a pair of follow-up tweets, Trump found himself in Puerto Rico on Tuesday. Not long after his arrival, Trump met with leaders on the island and addressed the media, but was met with backlash once again after complaining about the debt, while comparing the body count to what happened during Hurricane Katrina. As seen on his Twitter feed on October 4, Trump is not pleased with how the media reported his stop visit.

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday morning, Donald Trump lashed out at the mainstream media in regards to their coverage of his visit to Puerto Rico. "A great day in (PR) yesterday," Trump tweeted, while adding, "While some of the news coverage is Fake, most showed great warmth and friendship."

Not stopping there, Donald Trump doubled down on his attack on the media.

"Wow, so many Fake News stories today. No matter what I do or say, they will not write or speak truth," Trump went on to post, before noting, "The Fake News Media is out of control!" Trump's war of words with the media has become routine, and the president doesn't look to be interested in ending it anytime soon.

Moving forward

Donald Trump's stop in Puerto Rico became the number one news story on Tuesday, as viral videos and articles took over social media. In addition to the aforementioned remarks, the former host of "The Apprentice" came under fire when he was found in a video throwing paper towels to hurricane survivors as if it was a basketball. With his trip now in the past, the billionaire real estate mogul will head to Las Vegas following the worst mass shooting in the history of the United States.
