San Juan mayor

President Donald Trump launched a Twitter attack Saturday morning on San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz for “poor leadership ability,” saying she and others in Puerto Rico “want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort.”

“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,” the President wrote on Twitter. “… 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.”

The President again praised the federal government’s response on the island, which is grappling with the devastating impact of Hurricane Maria, saying the 10,000 federal workers there were doing a “fantastic job.”
“The military and first responders, despite no electric, roads, phones etc., have done an amazing job,” he wrote. “Puerto Rico was totally destroyed.”
Yulín Cruz tweeted shortly after Trump, saying that the only goal was “saving lives.”
