Donald Trump Just Viciously Attacked ‘Nasty’ Puerto Rican Mayor On Twitter,’Wants Everything To Be Done For Them’

Donald Trump just took aim at storm-battered Puerto Rico in a series of Saturday morning tweets, claiming leaders of Puerto Rico asking for federal help “want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort.”

Amid appeals from Puerto Rican authorities for federal aid in the wake of Hurricane Maria, Trump denounced the “poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan,” who has publicly criticized his administration’s lackluster response to the island’s disaster.

Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz on Friday slammed the White House’s handling of the crisis, saying the federal government’s “inefficiency” is “killing” Puerto Ricans in need of urgent aid.
Trump hit back, saying while Cruz “was very complimentary only a few days ago,” she “has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.”

“The mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump,” Trump tweeted. “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,” he continued. “10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job.”

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz held an emotional press conference Friday ripping the Trump administration’s efforts to assist the island.

“I will do what I never thought I was going to do. I am begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying. If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency,” she said.

On Saturday, following Trump’s tweets about her, Cruz said her No. 1 goal is “saving lives.”

“The goal is one: saving lives. This is the time to show our ‘true colors’. We cannot be distracted by anything else,” she tweeted.
