When Hurricane Maria Rolled Over Puerto Rico, Trump's Reaction Was To Sell It

US President Donald J.

Trump has had a fraught relationship with Puerto Rico ever since Hurricane Maria devastated the island.

Nearly 3,000 people died as a result of the storm and aftereffects, including widespread power outages.
