San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz just did something so incredibly foolish it is hard to fathom.
Now, imagine you were an elected leader of an island completely dependent on aid from America and you were constantly feuding with the leader of the USA who is known to hold grudges.
Now, add that a hurricane is barreling toward your island and you will need Trump’s help…what would you do?
Most smart people would not insult the guy at the top but no one ever said Democrats are smart.
From The New York Post:
San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz told President Trump to “get out of the way” Tuesday — saying his opinion is not welcome in Puerto Rico — after he tweeted about Tropical Storm Dorian and the nation’s disaster relief spending.
“Wow! Yet another big storm heading to Puerto Rico,” Trump said. “Will it ever end? Congress approved 92 Billion Dollars for Puerto Rico last year, an all time record of its kind for ‘anywhere.’”
Cruz, a longtime critic of the president, responded to his comments during an appearance on CNN.
“The president continues to express lies because the truth really does not suit him,” Cruz said, calling Trump’s “92 Billion Dollar” claim false.
“We are not going to be concerned by his behavior, his lack of understanding,” she added. “It’s not $92 billion, it is close to $42 billion…and still, things have not worked appropriately.”
Trump fired off his tweet on Tuesday morning as Tropical Storm Dorian was barreling through the Caribbean and towards Puerto Rico. It was expected to reach the island nation by Wednesday — possibly as a Category 1 hurricane.
I said yesterday that Trump needs to be quite, “calm down” get out of the way and make way for those of us who are actually doing the work on the ground. Maybe Trump will understand this time around THIS IS NOT ABOUT HIM; THIS IS NOT ABOUT POLITICS; THIS IS ABOUT SAVING LIVES. https://t.co/uy5dZY9uwY

So interesting to read and see all of the free and interesting advice I am getting on China, from people who have tried to handle it before and failed miserably – In fact, they got taken to the cleaners. We are doing very well with China. This has never happened to them before!
