Rihanna slams Trump on Puerto Rico: ‘Don’t let your people die like this’


Rihanna criticized President Donald’s Trump response to the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria, suggesting that the President is not paying enough attention to the disaster occurring on the island.

“Dear @realDonaldTrump I know you’ve probably already seen this, but I just wanted to make sure! Don’t let your people die like this,” the pop star tweeted early Thursday morning, along with a cover of the New York Daily News that reads, “Puerto Rico needs more help, Mr. President!”
In a second tweet, Rihanna called for a “round of applause” for former US Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, who made an appearance at the Presidents Cup golf tournament in New Jersey on Thursday, following a joint effort by the five living former presidents to support hurricane relief efforts.
As the crisis continues with many residents still seeking access to food, electricity, medicine and water, many celebrities, including Lin-Manuel MirandaJennifer Lopez and Pitbull, have also urged swift action to aid Puerto Rico. Some have also slammed Trump for what they say is a slow response.
