From the comfort of the his golf resort, where Trump is relaxing for yet another weekend while in office, the president went on a Twitter rampage against the mayor of devastated Puerto Rico who dared criticize the slow response by the White House while the people there suffer.
…Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help. They….
…want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort. 10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job.
Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz spoke to reporters on Friday, wearing a t-shirt that said “Help us, we’re dying,” to correct the record after Trump insisted that food and water has already arrived and the recovery efforts are going swimmingly.
‘People are drinking out of creeks here in San Juan. You have people in buildings and they’re becoming caged in their own buildings — old people, retired people that don’t have any electricity. We’re dying here. We truly are dying here. I keep saying it: SOS. If anyone can hear us; if Mr. Trump an hear us, let’s just get it over with and get the ball rolling.’
