Trump Attacks San Juan Mayor As Storm Approaches

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Wednesday criticized the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, as the island braced for a tropical storm nearly two years after it was devastated by Hurricane Maria.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, a vocal critic of the president and the administration’s response to Hurricane Maria, said Tuesday night that Trump should “get out of the way” and let others do the job of preparing for Dorian.

She added that she felt the island was better prepared ahead of the coming storm than it was before Maria devastated the U.S. territory in 2017.
