The United States came out of the Presidents Cup golf tournament today with a first place victory. President Trump made a statement after the win and completely stunned the audience by dedicating the win to the people of Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida devastated by the recent hurricanes.
Trump watched play on the Liberty Golf Club Course in Jersey City, New Jersey this morning and spoke to reporters after.
“On behalf of all of the people of Texas and all of the people of – if you look today and you see what’s happening, how horrible it is, but we have it under really great control – Puerto Rico and the people of Florida that have really suffered over this short period of time with the hurricanes.”
President Trump has been working diligently with his administration to ensure that Puerto Ricans are getting the aid that they need in the wake of near devastation on their island from Hurricane Maria last month.
“I want to just remember them. And we’re going to dedicate this trophy to all of those people that went through so much that we love, a part of our great state and really a part of our great nation.”
Despite harsh criticism from the mayor of San Juan this week, President Trump has been using the full force of his government to rush aid to the stricken island, while still tending to devastated Florida and Texas.
