Geraldo Criticizes Trump’s Response to Puerto Rico: ‘This Isn’t the Time for Blame’

Fox News’s Geraldo Rivera seemed to criticize Donald Trump on Tuesday after the president issued some harsh comments about Puerto Rico.

Rivera delivered a report on Fox & Friends about how the island is facing a humanitarian crisis after being almost completely destroyed by Hurricane Maria. As Rivera talked about the dire situation, he brought up how Trump addressed the crisis by commenting about all the debt and infrastructure problems Puerto Rico had before the storm.

“I don’t think they are doing well, with due respect to the president, and I think what we need here in Puerto Rico is more compassion,” Rivera said. “This isn’t the time for blame. This is the time to help a fellow American citizen.”

Rivera is aware of how often Trump watches Fox & Friends, and he has used his appearances on the show to submit his opinions to the president. When Trump compromised with Congressional Democrats on the DACA program earlier this month, Rivera claimed that the president changed course after seeing his plea to have compassion for DREAMers.
