Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of the Puerto Rican capital San Juan, had something to say about Donald Trump’s boasting that his administration deserved a grade of 10/10 for his handling of the crisis.
“If it’s a 10 out of a scale of 100, of course,” she said to CNN. “It’s still a failing grade.”
A month later, hundreds of thousands of Americans are without running water and more than 80% of the population remain without electricity.
“I give ourselves a 10,” the president spoke when asked on a scale of one to 10 how he would judge his performance in regards to Hurricane Maria aid.
Cruz has prior accused the administration of not doing enough. Cruz spoke on his lackluster relief effort stating: “I think the president lives in an alternative reality world, that only he believes the things he is saying. But certainly people are still without electricity. We knew it was going to take a long time for that to happen. But the basic services are still not there yet, and there doesn’t seem to be any [sign] of how it’s supposed to go.”
