San Juan Mayor Rips Trump Admin’s Puerto Rico Response: ‘Damnit, This Is Not a Good News Story’
‘THIS IS LIFE OR DEATH’
Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz on Friday furiously called out the White House after U.S. Homeland Security chief Elaine Duke called the Trump administration’s relief response a “good news story.” Speaking with CNN’s New Day, Cruz went off: “Well, maybe from where she’s standing it’s a good news story. When you are drinking from a creek, it’s not a good news story. When you don’t have food for a baby, it’s not a good news story.” The mayor said Duke’s words upset and frustrated her. “This is—dammit, this is not a good news story. This is a people are dying story. This is a life or death story,” she said.
