San Juan mayor says Trump is 'looking for an excuse'

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. The U.S. president's trip to a New Jersey golf course is said to have delayed the island's intended aid, according to reports.

Singer-songwriter John Legend retweeted one of Mr Trump's tweets and wrote: "Trump continues to dominate the shittiest president ever competition". "And I keep saying it. S.O.S. if anyone can hear us", said Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz.

Cruz also said she and her family are staying at the Coliseum in San Juan, along with more than 600 people.

At the same time, it will make evacuees sign a promise to pay their airfare in full, adding that authorities will keep the evacuee's passports as collateral, forcing them to "arrange payments as agreed upon via the promissory note". He has also made repeated reference to Puerto Rico's debt, even in the midst of a humanitarian catastrophe.

Che, while mentioning Trump's tweet where he called Cruz nasty, called the president a "bi-h" and reflected on the racial implications of the his actions.




Increasingly though, it would appear Mayor Yulin Cruz seized this natural disaster as a political opportunity to score points as a hero for the people of Puerto Rico, despite not actually working with federal agents in recovery effort.

Cruz said that she was done being polite and politically correct.

Trump, along with First Lady Melania Trump, is set to visit the island on Tuesday.

Many have made impassioned responses to President Donald Trump's tweets in which he criticized the leadership in hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico and implied its people are passing the buck on the US territory's recovery. Maria knocked out the island's power, caused an estimated $30 billion in damage and left residents struggling to obtain food, water and fuel.

"The problem that we have with the mayor unfortunately is that unity of command is ultimately what's needed to be successful in this response", Long said.
