The “Late Night” host took particular issue with a series of tweets Trump sent in response to the disaster, in which the president focused on the Puerto Rico government’s “massive debt” as millions of residents are without basic necessities like food, water and electricity.
Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 26, 2017
...It's old electrical grid, which was in terrible shape, was devastated. Much of the Island was destroyed, with billions of dollars....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 26, 2017

“You wanted to ‘Make America Great Again’ so I’ll say it again,” Meyers added. “Puerto Rico is America.”
