Donald Trump's widely-criticized response to the disaster in Puerto Rico included insulting their leaders, bringing up Puerto Rico's debt (a substantial chunk of which he caused directly with a failed business venture whose debt he saddled the people of the island with), failure to suspend the Jones act so relief could make it there more quickly and efficiently, and threatening to pull relief efforts. Melania Trump's most recent PSA seems a bit odd and out of place. She released a 30-second spot recorded in conjunction with FEMA, urging people to donate to disaster relief for the tiny island.
The spot has made its rounds all over the internet and people seem to have the same general response:

Does the president of US Virgin Island know this? NO! Does President of Puerto Rico know? NO! They shd be informed!— Carloads Danger (@BendyerJohnson) October 18, 2017
He gave $1million. He does not take salary as President. Also, POTUS has cut his White House staff/services by $4mil vs Obama— Fashion Girl (@Jewelz0531) October 18, 2017
That was debunked. He said he would and never actually did it. Just like he always does. He's also ignoring Puerto Rico.— 🎃=^.^=🎃 (@devilishxcherub) October 18, 2017
Melania set an example and write a big check from your “billionaire” husbands acct. And when the check clears , your base might do the same.— Della Street (@DellaStreet11) October 18, 2017
Besides the obvious hypocrisy, this is just frightening. No emotions, no facial movement--she looks hynotized.— Kaye Waller (@SKWaller) October 17, 2017
