Trump lashes out at San Juan mayor over Maria response


Donald Trump has lashed out at Puerto Rico politicians over their criticism of US relief efforts on the island following Hurricane Maria, APA reports quoting BBC.


The category four hurricane a week ago killed 16 people on the island and left millions in need of aid.


In a series of tweets, Trump said that Puerto Rican officials showed "poor leadership ability" and "want everything to be done for them".


It comes after the Mayor of San Juan made a desperate plea for federal help.


"We have no time for patience any more," said Carmen Yulin Cruz in a news conference.


"I am asking the president of the United States to make sure somebody is in charge that is up to the task of saving lives.


"I am done being polite. I am done being politically correct. I am mad as hell."
