Today President Trump flew all the way to Puerto Rico to survey the hurricane damage, talk to the local leaders and lend a hand to the people. Of course, there is ONE person in Puerto Rico who does not like the President one bit…San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz.
The president actually went and personally met with Mayor Cruz during his outing. He met with many of the other leaders as well and heard their concerns.
It seems that many of them loved President Trump and were happy with their meeting. Then there was the nasty thing Cruz said:
“I would hope that the President of the United States stops spouting out comments to hurt the people of Puerto Rico.”
“Rather than commander-in-chief, he sort of becomes miscommunicator-in-chief.”
She also implied the best part of the meeting was the “second half” – after Trump had left to take care of other duties.
It is worth mentioning that right before he little interview with CNN, President Trump had held a meeting with all of the leaders of Puerto Rico including herself and the governor.
He managed to thank all the mayors and leaders during the meeting for their hard work except one: San Juan Mayor Yulin Cruz. My guess is she was a little bit bitter about being left out.
Plus she waited until AFTER Trump had left to say all this. Apparently, she likes to act tough on camera but can not back it up in person.
Still, maybe if she spent more time working with Trump, FEMA, and the military and less time interviewing on every TV network that will have her, we would be in better place by now. It’s time for her to put her political ambitions aside and serve the people.
President Donald Trump came face to face with San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, who he derided on Twitter as “nasty” and lacking leadership skills.
The President and First Lady Melania Trump came to Puerto Rico on Tuesday, where they will meet with hurricane victims and participate in briefings with numerous officials, including Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló and U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp.According to a pool report, Trump and the Mayor exchanged greetings before the briefing. Although there was applause several times, she did not join in.
“I have accepted the invitation on behalf of the people of San Juan and out of respect for the American people represented by the Office of the President of the United States,” Cruz wrote in a statement posted on Facebook. “This is ab out saving lives, not about politics.”
