Twitter Slams Trump Over Comments On San Juan Mayor's 'Poor Leadership'

Posted October 02, 2017

But the President not letting up, tweeting again Saturday night, "Results of recovery efforts will speak much louder than complaints by San Juan Mayor".

Cruz may have set off President Trump by accusing his administration of quote "killing us with the inefficiency" ten days after Maria devastated the island. "10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job", Trump added.

President Donald Trump is defending his response to Puerto Rico's hurricane destruction and says "big decisions" are coming on the cost of rebuilding the island.

Trump, who plans to visit the island on Tuesday, fired off a series of angry tweets from his private golf club in New Jersey, taking aim at the mayor of San Juan, the island's capital and largest city.

While much of the U.S. territory of 3.4 million remained without power, fresh water or communications links long after the catastrophic passage of Hurricane Maria, reports continued to filter in of battered towns across the island that have yet to receive any aid.

Cruz, in response, said later Saturday morning that she'll "continue to do whatever I have to do" to get federal hurricane assistance. Carmen Yulin Cruz spends her days in hip waders trudging through filthy flood waters, going door to door to rescue people in need, and begging, sometimes through tears, for the White House to do more to save her people, all while Trump plays golf.

Trump was accused last weekend of giving short shrift to Puerto Rico's recovery while focusing on the National Football League players who knelt during the playing of the national anthem at games.

Cruz said she shared values with the Democratic Party but did not participate in the party and pointed out that Republican Sen.

In his tweets, Trump attempted to blame the island's continuing woes on Democrats, the media and local officials. Trump rebuked her, saying Puerto Ricans wanted everything done for them, and that Cruz showed "poor leadership ability". Almost half of the supermarkets have reopened, albeit with reduced hours, and about 60 percent of the gas stations have begun pumping, many protected by armed private security guards.

In a report from central Puerto Rico this week, CNN's Leyla Santiago repeatedly emphasized that residents were US citizens.

"I can tell you this: We have done an incredible job considering there's absolutely nothing to work with".

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello has called the destruction to the island unprecedented, though the Republican has praised the USA government's relief efforts.

Trump is planning to visit the US territory on Tuesday.

"Dammit, this is not a good news story".

Mulvaney said some people were looking for reasons to snipe at the Trump administration and that the public should consider the administration's actions over words.

While much of the U.S. territory remained without power, fresh water or communications links long after the catastrophic passage of Hurricane Maria, reports continued to filter in on Saturday of battered towns across the island that have yet to see any federal or local presence.
