The 49-year-old artist tweeted, “Mr. President, shut the f*** up about NFL. Do something about our people in need in #PuertoRico. We are American citizens too.” Following the tweet, loyal fans praised the Puertorriqueño for standing up to his beliefs, writing things like, “Thank you for using your platform, Viva Puerto Rico,” and “Si Se Puede, you cannot shut us out of your America, we are Americans too.”

Several days prior, the "Flor Palida" singer posted a video on social media urging his followers to donate to Unidos Por Puerto Rico to support his homeland.

With Puerto Rico is still under massive damage after Hurricane Maria, authorities predicted last week that the island, many call home, could be without power for up to six months. The Gov. of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rossell spoke out on Monday saying the federal government's response to the devastation has been too slow, which has put the work in hands of the American people.

New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo took matters into his own hands as he was one of the first officials to lend a helping hand to Puerto Rico. Many Puerto Rican-America artists such as Fat Joe, Jennifer Lopez, LaLa Anthony and more have made generous donations to help speed up the recovery of the islands state of emergency.

 

As frustrations raise in the nation, many question the Trump's latest comment on the devastation in the Carribean island. "Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble," the former businessman tweeted on Monday. The response is not surprising, as it took Trump five full days before he addressed Puerto Rico's current crisis.
