President Donald Trump lashed out at Puerto Rico yet again on Monday after the Boston Red Sox manager declined an invitation to the White House.
“Puerto Rico has been given more money by Congress for Hurricane Disaster Relief, 91 Billion Dollars, than any State in the history of the U.S,” Trump (falsely) raved on Twitter.
….Alabama, Iowa, Nebraska, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and others unless much more money is given to Puerto Rico. The Dems don’t want farmers to get any help. Puerto Rico should be very happy and the Dems should stop blocking much needed Disaster Relief!

Trump didn’t mention the baseball team’s manager in his posts. But Trump’s missives come after the manager, Alex Cora, said he would not attend a White House ceremony due to Trump’s poor response to the hurricane that killed almost 3000 Puerto Ricans.
“It’s pretty tough to go celebrate when we’re where we’re at,” Cora said. “I’d rather not go and be consistent with everything.”
