During a press briefing on Friday, Donald Trump tried to make himself seem like a hero to the island of Puerto Rico. He claimed that he was “the best thing that ever happened to Puerto Rico.”

Trump’s claims come as an attempt to sway the Latino vote his way. His remarks came after the White House authorized $11.6 billion in aid to rebuild infrastructure on Puerto Rico three years after Hurricane Maria devastated the island.

When asked why it took so long to give the U.S. territory aid Trump just blamed Democrats.

But voters aren’t buying Trump’s lies. Here’s how people are reacting to his comments:
