Puerto Ricans are lashing out at US President Donald Trump after he accused the island's leaders of wanting "everything done for them" as they cope with the devastation brought on by Hurricane Maria last month.
Che, while mentioning Trump's tweet where he called Cruz nasty, called the president a "bi-h" and reflected on the racial implications of the his actions. "Doing everything we can to help great people of PR!" he said on Twitter.
Villaseñor promptly informs him that Puerto Rico is a US territory. But the mayor of San German, a town of about 35,000 in the south-western corner of the island, echoed Ms Cruz's harsh words. "We want to help you, but we have to take care of America first", he continued, unaware that Puerto Rico is a USA territory.
Soon after the President's tweets, Ms Cruz tweeted photos of herself helping the relief effort, writing: "The goal is one: saving lives".
Sanders says that, due to some of Trump's past comments, he thinks "we have a right to be suspect that he is treating the people of Puerto Rico in a different way than he has treated the people of Texas or Florida". He also praised the effort of the military and retweeted several accounts about their relief work.
"They want us to do everything for them, then that should be a total community effort".
After assuring her help will arrive on Tuesday or "Wednesday at the latest", and hearing Yulín Cruz say that's not soon enough, Baldwin's Trump says: "Well, you should have paid your bills".
"Maybe from where she's standing it's a good news story". When you don't have food for a baby, it's not a good news story.
Trump blasted Mayor Carmen Yuln Cruz in a series of tweets that aimed to deflect blame for the deepening humanitarian crisis on the island and to cast the mounting criticism against him as partisan attacks - from local officials, political rivals and the media.
Now that Puerto Rico was addressed, Trump continued the discussion not on football (to our surprise) but on North Korea, insisting that our "wonderful secretary of state" not waste time worrying about "Little Rocket Man". "When you have to pull people down from their buildings - I'm sorry, but that really upsets me and frustrates me".
