Donald Trump Just Attacked the Mayor of San Juan
Carmen Yulín Cruz gave an emotional speech yesterday. Trump didn’t take it well.
Update Saturday 7:30am ET: Donald Trump spent the morning attacking the mayor of San Juan on Twitter.
Yes, Trump has been tweeting again; this time slamming Puerto Rico for not being grateful enough, for actually telling the Government-their government- that the relief agencies could have and could BE doing a better job. Don’t take my word for it, check it out for yourself. This is not the only article on this out there. There is also reporting that the Feds told people there to call or email. Now, what part of wrecked phone and internet service don’t they understand? Regular procedure doesn’t work in a disaster like this one.
The thing that upsets me, that angers AND frightens me is the attitude of the man who is supposed to be our leader; a man that cannot, CANNOT because he doesn’t have the capacity to understand or care that the government officials in Puerto Rico are seeing their citizens suffer and DIE waiting for THEIR OWN, UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT to do something. Yes, they are beginning to help but it should have been there DAYS ago. So, he should be able to understand the emotions in play here. the fact that he doesn’t and worse that his 35 or less percentage base will side with him over these tweets should make us all wonder about the character of our country, to let ourselves be bullied by a minority of selfish compassionless self-centered folks.
