Lin-Manuel Miranda is one of many, many celebrities - both with Puerto Rican family members and ties like Miranda, and otherwise - who are blasting Donald Trump over his unbelievably inappropriate criticisms of the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico!
Tensions over Washington's handling of the recovery effort boiled over Friday as a tearful Cruz said at a press conference, "We are dying here" and called on President Trump to put someone in charge of the relief effort who "is up to the task of saving lives".
As we reported earlier today, The Donald is shamefully criticizing San Juan's mayor after she had the audacity to beg for the United States to save the island... and Miranda, whose father Luis moved to NY from Puerto Rico as a teenager, isn't putting up with Trump's bull shit.
Cities including Newark have said they would be sending officers to the territory, but Christie said these efforts will have to be organized through the state under the order. "10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job", Trump added.
While FEMA has said it has delivered millions of meals and liters of water, many Puerto Ricans have said the aid has been too little and has not made it way to large parts of the island.
"Obviously, I imagine it's not a lack of truckers situation, it's a lack that the business gets started so they can send the truckers to pick up the cargo", Corrada said. "I know the good heart of the American people and I know that when a mayday sound goes off, they come to the rescue", she told ABC's "This Week".
"He continued:".The fact is that Puerto Rico has been destroyed by two hurricanes. Then, the storm - the second hurricane to hit this season - left the island of 3.4 million people without clean water and electricity for basic health-care services and food storage. "This is the time to show our 'true colors, '" she said, posting pictures of Puerto Ricans helping others.
Spain to deploy police to prevent Catalan independence vote
And police have seized close to ten million ballot papers, as well as other items destined for the vote. However, the Catalan government maintained on Tuesday that the vote would still take place.
Trump spent the next eight (!) hours tweeting a series of attacks against the so-called "fake news" media for allegedly misrepresenting the actions of his administration in Puerto Rico.
Trump's latest remarks - issued from his luxury golf resort in New Jersey - could further inflame sentiment.
Sanders also said it would be fair for people to wonder if race was a factor in Trump's response to the devastation in Puerto Rico.
The president also dedicated several tweets to pushing back against what he described as "fake news" about the response to Hurricane Maria, which killed at least 16 people in the US territory. We know the Mayor of San Juan is a heroine. A day's reporting target is often decided on how much gas can be located.
It took them days to get out.
Speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper on Saturday night, Cruz said she's not a Democrat.
That default divisiveness makes Trump different than every person who has held the office before him. The President and First Lady are expected in Puerto Rico on Tuesday.
Trump is planning to visit the US territory on Tuesday.
