Trump Rates Himself A Perfect '10' For Puerto Rico's Hurricane Response

There's only one grade Trump will ever give himself or his administration, can you guess what it is?

While meeting with Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló today, Trump issued himself and his administration a "10" when asked how his "administration: reacted to the Hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico.

During a presser with Gov. Rosselló, a reporter asked, "Mr. President, between 1 and 10, how would you grade the White House response so far?"

Trump replied, "I'd say it was a 10. I'd say it was probably the most difficult -- when you talk about relief, when you talk about search, when you talk about all of the different levels and even when you talk about lives saved."

There's only grade Trump will ever give himself or his administration.

He continued, "You look at the number, I mean this was I think it was worse than Katrina."

Why does Trump have to even mention Hurricane Katrina? That wasn't the question at all, but Trump has to make everything he's involved in the biggest, baddest, bestest of all time.

It's always all about him.

He continued droning on and on about all the different things his incredible administration did for the suffering people in Puerto Rico and said again "I would give a 10."

"I think we did a fantastic job and we're being given credit."

As The Hill reported, "Rosselló declined to rate the federal relief efforts, even after Trump turned to him, touched his arm and asked "did we do a great job?" He repeatedly said that the White House has answered “all of our petitions.”

Roughly 80 percent of the island remains without electricity and almost 30 of the island still does not have access to clean water, according to Puerto Rican government figures.

That's a heckuva job, Trumpie.
