Abby Huntsman Responds To Trump's Puerto Rico Response — “Indefensible And Out of touch”
With Hurricane Florence approaching the southeastern U.S., Trump has been touting his administration’s emergency preparedness — saying he handled the situation in Puerto Rico fantastically despite the critics. This comes after recent reports found that nearly 3,000 Puerto Ricans died as a result of last year’s storm.
Abby Hunstman panned Trump’s remarks on Wednesday, saying they were “indefensible,” “out of touch” and resemblant of the George W. Bush administration’s approach to Hurricane Katrina.
Hostin took the baton from there. And the co-host — whose family was directly impacted by the hurricane — absolutely shredded Trump while invoking the reports that the administration took $10 million away from FEMA and gave it to ICE.
“It’s humiliating, it’s embarrassing for our country, and I don’t think this president cares,” Hostin said. “If you’re in Florence’s path and considering riding it out, your president just said that a hurricane response where 3,000 die is his measure of success. Get out of there.”
