The Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, Carmen Yulin Cruz this week slammed President Trump, saying he “lacks good-hearted “American values. Cruz spoke specifically about how he responded to a disaster on her island.

    Cruz quotes Trump as saying that the hurricane wasn’t a “real catastrophe” even though it left 64 dead. “He was disrespectful to the Puerto Rican people, he was disrespectful to the American people who were leaving their homes to come help us here,” she added.

   Where he needed to be a commander-in-chief, Mayor Cruz said Trump was a “disaster-in-chief.” The Mayor said Trump does not embody the values of the good-hearted American people who have made sure we are not forgotten.

   Published reports say that 55 percent of the island remains without power after 155-mph winds and rushing floodwaters tore through buildings and infrastructure in September.

   And that electricity may not be fully restored until May in the American territory, which is home to 3.5 million and was already facing a fiscal crisis before the devastating storm
