“Right from the beginning, this governor [Ricardo Rossello]…who isn’t even from my party, did not play politics [unlike San Juan mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz]…I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you’ve thrown our budget a little out of whack because we’ve spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico, and when you look at a real catastrophe like [Hurricane] Katrina, and the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people that died [from Katrina]….what is your death count now? 16 people? 16 people vs. deaths in the thousands [from Katrina]….everybody here can be really proud.”

Trump translation: “You cost us tons and tons of money and you only had 16 people die? Don’t even talk about your catastrophic deaths in the same breath as Katrina. 16 deaths do not impress me. Hell, no one is impressed. 16 ants stepped on…barely registers on the cosmic scale. Just ask Orson Welles‘ character, Harry Lime, from The Third Man…that scene in the ferris wheel.”
