Trump Rips San Juan Mayor: 'Told by the Democrats to Be Nasty'

On Friday, San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz criticized a Trump administration official who said the federal relief effort 10 days after the Category 4 hurricane hit the island commonwealth was "a good news story", Reuters reported. "You have been GOLFING", he tweeted at Trump. So exhausted. Let me show you: "How long ago did I declare war on North Korea and Little Rocket Man?" "Someone will say, 'Right this way, sir'".

Trump lashed out in a series of morning tweets, while also suggesting that Puerto Ricans "want everything to be done for them" and had left the bulk of relief work to federal first responders and the military.

When an ABC News reporter asked the White House Saturday morning whether Trump planned to meet with Cruz in person during his upcoming trip to Puerto Rico, the unnamed official responded with another barb at the mayor - suggesting she's "too busy doing tv" to respond to the president's invitations.

"The electrical grid and other infrastructure were already in very, very poor shape, they were at their life's end prior to the hurricanes, and now virtually everything has been wiped out", Trump said.

The caregiver invited Lalo to come back to visit again in the future, so she and the residents can thank him once more.

Actor Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of hit Broadway musical Hamilton, said: "You're going straight to hell, @realDonaldTrump". I'm really sorry, but when you have people out there dying, literally, scraping for food - where is the good news?

"If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying and you are killing us with the inefficiency and the bureaucracy", she said.

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.

"I am donating my proceeds from this song to hurricane relief charities for Puerto Rico, Mexico and the other affected Caribbean islands". Only Paul Goodloe went to Puerto Rico.

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

"I am done being polite, I am done being politically correct".

"The President's latest comments regarding the Mayor of San Juan are uncalled for", he said in a statement. "I am mad as hell".

It's not a secret that President Trump lacks the empathy gene, but his tirade of Tweets on Saturday have taken his narcissism to a whole new level.

"In contrast to dire reports from the island, White House homeland security adviser Tom Bossert sent West Wing colleagues an unusually upbeat update-leaked to Axios-that points to a rapid recovery no one on the ground is witnessing", the outlet reports. "When you're drinking from a creek, it's not a good news story".

"I am asking the President of the United States to make sure somebody is in charge that is up to the task of saving lives", she added, warning that "if we don't get the food and water into peoples' hands what we are going to see is something close to a genocide".

"She has demonstrated an empathy and commitment to her people that have taken her to work day and night, very quietly at the beginning,"Duprey said".
