President Trump has been viciously critical of Puerto Rico, the U.S. territory that was recently devastated by Hurricane Maria. Trump's behavior since the storm has left some people wondering if he realizes the island is actually part of the U.S., and that its 3.4 million inhabitants are, in fact, U.S. citizens.

...We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 12, 2017
Many people have already criticized Trump's remarks. The President is openly speaking about withdrawing FEMA support while huge portions of the island remain without power and access to clean water. He has also criticized the relief efforts of Puerto Rican officials, some who waded through floodwaters trying to save lives while Trump spent the past two weekends golfing.
Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel noted the timestamps on the tweets along with their disturbing content. Trump began tweeting at 6:49 a.m., meaning these thoughts were likely the first things running through his head when he woke up.
It's low-key genius, really Just sneak into your children's rooms, take their fidget spinners, and mail them to the White House ASAP. Kimmel suggested Mar-a-Lago as an alternate address.
The world is holding its breath as America gathers its fidget spinners. While Kimmel waits to see if his plan is a success, perhaps he'll pass the time by having another Twitter fight with Donald Trump Jr.
