Rihanna has a message for Trump.

The singer took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon to blatantly remind the president of the United States to do something about the hurricane Maria victims in Puerto Rico.

Badgalriri shared an image of The Daily News’ recent cover that reads: Puerto Rico needs more help, Mr. President. She captioned the photo: “Dear I know you’ve probably already seen this, but I just wanted to make sure! Don’t let your people die like this.”

The singer’s message comes on the heels of a seemingly lackluster response to the island’s devastation.

Earlier this week, the President tweeted a series of heartless tweets regarding the disaster, which included a comment about the island’s “old electrical grid.”

He also tweeted: “Much of the Island was destroyed, with billions of dollars … owed to Wall Street and the banks which, sadly, must be dealt with.”

The Donald was not only criticized for his blasé tweets, but waiting as long as he did to react. Instead, the nation’s leader harped on the NFL and professional athletes peacefully protesting human rights.

RIhanna is not the only star to blast Trump for his hurricane response. Late night talk show host, Seth Meyers, said during his show this week: “Hey, weren’t you the guy who was going to put Americans before Wall Street? You couldn’t even do that in a tweet!”

Meyers explained, “People don’t even have clean drinking water and your first instinct is to tell them they owe money. What are you, some kind of [expletive] landlord? Oh, right. You were a [expletive] landlord.”

He added, “You wanted to make American great again, so I’ll say it again. Puerto Rico is America. They’re included in the whole ‘Make America Great Again’ thing.”

After getting major backlash, the president did some damage control and agreed on Thursday to visit the island next Tuesday.
