While golfing at his privately-owned resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, on September 30, President Trump posted several tweets criticizing Puerto Ricans who "want everything to be done for them" following Hurricane Maria's devastation of the island.
While the President criticized from afar, Carmen Yulín Cruz, waded through waist-deep floodwaters trying to help people.
My mom ran out of food 2 days ago. If you think the media is exaggerating or that the situation in Puerto Rico is not dire then I feel sorry for you. Also, if you are not in PR or have no family there, you shouldn’t offer an opinion. You are doing more damage than good.— Carolina (@Carolinita__) September 30, 2017
