President Trump launched an attack on San Juan’s Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz on Saturday for criticizing the White House’s hurricane efforts in Puerto Rico was accused of being “poor leadership” and said that the island’s residents are not helping enough. She tweeted this recently.
The goal is one: saving lives. This is the time to show our "true colors". We cannot be distracted by anything else. pic.twitter.com/7PAINk19xM

Trump struck back at the media for their biased coverage on Twitter. He said that the “Fake News” is working overtime in Puerto Rico. The Democratic media started attacking him of course. Check out what they said.
Offensive. When millions in Puerto Rico are in crisis, the president should be better than this. https://t.co/ca52gNgHUZ

They want to make Puerto Rico something that tars Trump’s image. It’s absolutely sickening.
Now returning from PR, "Trump's Katrina" comparison no longer accurate. This is worse. At least Bush never blamed & attacked those suffering pic.twitter.com/EO28NvtVq3

“I know Puerto Rico doesn’t get Electoral College votes, Mr. President, but there are real Americans there suffering. Time to do more,” Sen. Bob Menendez wrote.
Trump then struck back hard.
Results of recovery efforts will speak much louder than complaints by San Juan Mayor. Doing everything we can to help great people of PR!

In the end, no matter what the Democrats say… Trump is going will have won because he has been working nonstop on this.
Don’t listen to the fake news media. Don’t let their lies affect you. Share this if you are standing with President and not with the lying media.
