Trump attacks San Juan mayor over hurricane response

Washington( CNN) President Donald Trump launched an attack on San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz on Saturday for blaming the White House’s hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico, accusing her of “poor leadership” and suggesting that the island’s citizens are not doing enough to help themselves.

“The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrat that you must be horrible to Trump, ” the President tweeted from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he is spending the weekend. “Such good lead ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, which they can not get their workers to facilitate. They miss everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort.”

The spectacle of Trump’s comments hurling Cruz and others on their own answer endeavours as Puerto Rico strives be addressed with tragedy that left millions without capability and with limited access to spray — and as Trump runs under barrage for what some have called a sluggish federal reaction — inspired a firestorm of action online, including from the creator of the Broadway musical “Hamilton, ” Lin-Manuel Miranda, who said that Trump was disappearing “straight to hell.”
