Trump says Puerto Rico mayors 'want everything done for them'

  • Now even money is running out in storm-hit Puerto Rico

Trump rebuked her, saying Puerto Ricans wanted everything done for them, and that Cruz showed "poor leadership ability". Trump blamed the Mayor's "poor leadership".

"The president, instead of tweeting against the mayor of San Juan who's watching her people die and just made a plea for help, ought to roll up his sleeves and get to work here", he said.

"On behalf of all of the people of Texas and all of the people of - if you look today and you see what's happening how awful it is, but we have it under control - Puerto Rico and the people of Florida who have really suffered over this last short period of time with the hurricanes", Trump said. Puerto Rico, he said, "was totally destroyed", and "10,000 Federal workers now on the island are doing a fantastic job".

Trump added, "The military and first responders, despite no electric, roads, phones etc., have done an incredible job". The party has been extremely important to the history of Puerto Rico.

Trump's tweets were a biting attack on the leader of a community in crisis.

"You're going straight to hell, @realDonaldTrump".

Carmen Miranda, 60, of Luquillo, is among those who has faced long lines for gasoline, medicine and supplies.

He also followed up his criticism of San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz from earlier today saying his actions will speak louder than her words. She said she meant "it was good news that people of Puerto Rico and many public servants of the United States are working together". You have been GOLFING.

Trump, who has been spending the weekend at his Trump National Golf Club in nearby Bedminster, took a quick trip over to the tournament for the awarding of the trophy at 6 p.m. ET.

On Saturday, the commander in chief sent a whopping 18 tweets about Puerto Rico but his defensive and angry day-long screed was apparently not enough to get his feelings across so he was at it again Sunday morning, blasting critics and praising his own administration. Anyway, it's a lie.

Miranda added, "I have been so moved by YOUR generosity since Maria". 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.

"This is what we got last night: four pallets of water, three pallets of meals and 12 pallets of infant food - which I gave them to the people of Comerio, where people are drinking off a creek", Cruz continued.

"So I am done being polite. And I can not fathom the thought that the greatest nation in the world can not figure out logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles long", Cruz said Friday. "I am mad as hell".

Maria pummelled Puerto Rico on September 20 as a very powerful Category 4 hurricane on the heels of Irma, with roof-ripping winds and torrential rains that caused widespread flooding and heavily damaged homes, roads and other infrastructure.
