Pres. Trump tosses paper towel rolls, distributes other supplies to hurricane victims during his Puerto Rico visit…

He was in a chapel, handing out supplies, and tossed some paper towels into the crowd. "In a surreal scene, Trump handed some packages of 'Arroz Rico' brand bags of rice to members of the crowd," the pool press report stated.

"Then in his best Stephen Curry impersonation, Trump held up his arm and softly shot paper towels into the crowd, which they enjoyed," the report continued.

Trump also told the crowd: "There's a lot of love in this room, a lot of love."

Another person compared the paper towel tosses to distributing Halloween candy and had a question.
