Fox News anchor Shepard Smith quickly shot down a number of President Donald Trump’s claims about Puerto Rico and his campaign to build a wall at the southern border.
Smith first checked Trump’s claims about Puerto Rico as a potentially destructive hurricane bears down on the island.
“President Trump is calling the island one of the most corrupt places on Earth. He added, by the way, he’s the best thing that ever happened to Puerto Rico. Those clearly are opinions as opposed to facts,” Smith said on Shepard Smith Reporting Wednesday afternoon.
Smith then put up a tweet from Trump that claimed Congress approved $92 billion for Puerto Rico. “That is decidedly not true,” Smith said.
