Trump slams Puerto Rico mayor for ‘poor leadership’, says island residents want everything ‘done for them’

President Donald Trump slammed the mayor of Puerto Rico’s capital city for “poor leadership” a day after the mayor criticized a Trump administration official’s positive assessment of the situation in the hurricane-ravaged U.S. territory.

Trump also suggested politics lay at the heart of the critical comments by San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, claiming that she has “been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.”

He suggested residents of the island are not doing enough themselves to recover from the crisis left by Hurricane Maria, saying they “want everything to be done for them.”



Trump praised military and first responders for the relief efforts in Puerto Rico.
