“SAN JUAN — When Hurricane Maria destroyed the infrastructure of Puerto Rico, it turned the mayor of its capital city into a spokeswoman for a stranded people.
Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto told the world of the “horror” she was seeing as she waded through San Juan’s flooded streets. And the desperation on an island that may remain without power for months.”

…and what does Donald Trump do?
“President Trump, spending the weekend at his Bedminister golf resort in New Jersey, attacked the mayor of San Juan on Saturday for “poor leadership” and accused her of conspiring with Democrats to criticize his administration’s response to storm-ravaged Puerto Rico.
Trump blasted Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz in a series of tweets that aimed to deflect blame for the deepening humanitarian crisis on the island and to cast the mounting criticism against him as partisan attacks — from local officials, political rivals and the media.
“The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump,” Trump wrote on Twitter. In another message, he added that Cruz and other local officials “want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort.””

Trump, in light of human suffering among Americans, chooses the take the low road. Trump decides to turn the human suffering in Puerto Rico into a political, and propaganda war. He sinks to new lows in modern politics. He is showing Americans that when you cross trump, you pay. In this case you pay with the man occupying the Oval Office turning a blind eye to the suffering of Americans.
Trump’s new slogan…
Make America Disgraceful Again…and Again, and Again, and Again…
Donald Trump is an egotistical jerk…cross him after a human disaster and you will pay…
This is the America we should not believe in…
