Donald Trump Mocks Puerto Rican Accent During Hispanic Heritage Month Speech

Puerto Rico bondholders should only expect to recover 10 to 20 cents on the dollar when the island emerges from its record-setting bankruptcy, in line with recoveries seen when sovereign nations default, according to Kyle Bass, managing partner of Hayman Capital Management.

She looked on from the stage in the East Room in the White House as the President spoke to the assembled reporters and Hispanic leaders.

"You can take the president protecting the American people always extremely serious", Sanders responded.

The moment echoes Trump's celebratory Cinco de Mayo tweet from 2016 in which the then-candidate declared, "I love Hispanics!" while eating a taco bowl from the Trump Tower restaurant.




Reporters asked what he meant and Trump said: "It could be, the calm, the calm before the storm".

US President Donald Trump on Friday (6 October) used an exaggerated Spanish accent to pronounce "Puerto Rico" during a speech at an event celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month at the White House and Twitter couldn't stop cringing. Fantastic people in this audience. "I know some of them, and believe me, they're very tough and they're very smart". Is there too much attention paid to them? But that's OK. I have to deal with it.

He also highlighted recovery efforts in Puerto Rico, and said America will not rest until Puerto Rico is back on its feet.

Trump was talking about Puerto Rico's humanitarian crisis following Hurricane Maria when he suddenly began over-pronouncing the island's name.
