President Trump has never been one to self-criticize. That trend didn’t end Thursday while taking questions from reporters with visiting Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló in Washington DC.
“I would give myself a 10,” Trump said in reply to a reporter who asked how he’d rate his efforts on a scale from one to ten.
The President has been praised by some politicians in Puerto Rico, though others have attempted to level very harsh criticism. Rosselló wouldn’t answer the question about rating DC’s relief efforts. The President even turned and prompted him to answer, but the Governor simply repeated that the White House had answered “all of our petitions.”
Currently, around 20% of the island has electricity and 70% has access to clean water.
Trump spoke during a meeting with Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló, who is in Washington to push the federal government to provide disaster relief for the island.
The president’s self-assessment is at odds with the opinions of many in the U.S. territory, who have criticized the administration’s response.
President Trump, along with VP Pence, Homeland Security adviser Tom Bossert, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney, and Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long took part in a meeting with Puerto Rico Gov.

Trump has faced criticism for his response to the crisis, including from the mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulín Cruz, who accused the administration of not doing enough. He visited the island earlier this month and told local officials that they should be “proud” of how few people had died from the storm compared with the death toll during Hurricane Katrina, which he described as a “real catastrophe”.
