Rihanna urges Donald Trump to pay attention to Puerto Rico

“Don’t let your people die like this.”

Rihanna has called on Donald Trump to help the people of Puerto Rico as they recover from the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Maria. She chose Twitter, the President's favored means of communication, to reach Trump. Reminding him that Puerto Rican's are American citizens, she directed him to the cover of September 27's Daily News and said "Don't let your people die like this."

Her plea, which also saw her publicly send a video showing footage from Puerto Rico to Trump, arrives as vital supplies continue to run short on the island. 97 per cent of the 3.4m residents are still without electricity, CNN reports, while half do not have running water. Gas stations and supermarkets are rationing supplies, while banks are running low on cash.

Since Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, Trump has engaged in high profile arguments with both North Korea leader Kim Jong-un and the entirety of the NFL and NBA.
