Trump next moved to Calvary Chapel and stopped to talk to the pool. Asked what he thought of what he saw, he said "Well what I see is an incredible job done by FEMA, the Air Force and the Navy," praising the job of the first responders and FEMA.


Governor Ricardo Rossello said they're grateful for the president and of the effort that the federal government has embarked on all the way from the mayors to FEMA to DoD.

Trump received a huge cheer when he walked into the well-staged event, with signs that read "Proud Americans," "Let's Make Puerto Rico Great Again" and "God bless You Mr. President."


The crowd assembled behind a barrier with tables full of supplies in front of them. "There's a lot of love in this room, a lot of love," Trump said.

In a surreal scene, Trump handed some packages of "Arroz Rico" brand bags of rice to members of the crowd. Then in his best Stephen Curry impersonation, Trump held up his arm and softly shot paper towels into the crowd, which they enjoyed.
