Rihanna is furious with President Trump over his administration response to Puerto Rico amidst a humanitarian crisis on the island.
For the past week, the president has been getting a lot of criticism from celebrities on Twitter about the slow response to help the people of Puerto Rico after hurricane Maria wrecked havoc on the island last week. Rihanna added her voice to the mix on Thursday when she tweeted out the cover of the New York Daily News which highlights the severity of the crisis on the Caribbean island which is also a U.S. territory.
“Dear [Donald Trump] I know you’ve probably already seen this, but I just wanted to make sure! Don’t let your people die like this,” she tweeted. She received over 200,000 likes and 100,000 plus retweets with lots of people commending her for using her platform to shed more light on the situation. The five former living presidents have also joined in the effort to help hurricane ravage Puerto Rico.
Rihanna has never been afraid to voice her opinion on humanitarian crisis around the world and she doesn’t care if she buck heads with the president. She raised millions of dollars through her foundation to help educate young girls around the world and also to help fight cancer.
