President Trump began lashing out at the mayor of Puerto Rico's capital city Saturday morning in a war of words over recovery efforts after Hurricane Maria smashed into the U.S. territory.
Mr. Trump fired off a series of tweets criticizing San Juan mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz for criticizing his administration's hurricane response. The mayor has accused his administration of "killing us with the inefficiency."
The president responded by citing what he calls "such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help."
Mr. Trump said "they want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort. 10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job."
