Skip to comments.San Juan mayor accuses Trump of ‘genocide’ after hurricane
Posted on 10/12/2017 4:56:14 PM PDT by markomalley
The House overcame a conservative rebellion Thursday to pass a new round of disaster relief, saying the $36.5 billion is needed to replenish funds that are quickly depleting in the wake of hurricanes that have battered Texas, Florida, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
The overwhelming 353-69 vote came even as President Trump suggested federal emergency workers cannot remain in Puerto Rico forever and Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, accused Mr. Trump of genocide for what she said was an antipathy toward her island territory.
I ask every American that has love, and not hate in their hearts, to stand with Puerto Rico and let this President know we WILL NOT BE LEFT TO DIE, the mayor said in a statement she sent to Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez, Illinois Democrat, and asked him to publicize on Capitol Hill.
I ask the United Nations, UNICEF and the world to stand with the people of Puerto Rico and stop the genocide that will result from the lack of appropriate action of a President that just does not get it because he has been incapable of looking in our eyes and seeing the pride that burns fiercely in our hearts and souls, the mayor continued.

This one is a real piece of work.
She’s gone off the deep end!
That Commie freak is a real piece of work..maybe if she wasn’t HOARDING the money for herself something could be done to help the people..she hasn’t even gone to ONE FEMA meeting
She is the one who praised Obama for releasing an FALN terrorist from prison.
Yeah and she's licking her chops over the pending PR statehood effort so she can become a member of congress and get to work with the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters and Luis Guiterrez.
Good. That way everyone will roll their eyes at a real genocide.
Like the European one going on now.
Forget about it! PR was a Shambles before the storm ever hit the place.
Hey Mayor, .... Stop blaming President Trump for your problems. President Trump has already done more than enough!
I predict Mayor Cruz will wind up in the same cell with a former Katrina Mayor.
“Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, accused Mr. Trump of genocide for what she said was an antipathy toward her island territory. ... we WILL NOT BE LEFT TO DIE.
Lower Ninth Ward, New Orleans Katrina syndrome. “We’re going to sit here on our butts and scream at the top of our voices that you’ve got to come in here and take care of us. Or else, you’re racists. Probably even racists if you do take care of us. It ain’t enough.”
I hope this Mayor is investigated and prosecuted for withholding supplies.
She can get the supplies out, no power no water but all the Casinos are operating business as usual.
Lets compare this whiney beeectch to any Asian nation that experiences natural disasters. They just mobilize and find a way to get the job done. If the majority of morons in San Juan voted for this wretch they need to feel the pain from their poor choice of a leader. She’s a damn brat good for only moaning and groaning. I know some teenagers who could do a better job as mayor than this juvenile.
She’s just upset no one pays any attention to her
Puerto Rico’s Power May Be Out, But Most of Its Casinos Are Back
What Trump needs to do is ignore her like he’s ignoring Chef Andres who’s bragging about distributing 250,000 meals a day.
Well, the DOJ and FBI, investigating PR aid distribution corruption by public officials, should be able to easily locate the main corrupt official by using a microphone and TV camera as bait to lure her in.
She doesn’t strike me as being anything more than a weak spokesperson for this line of attack. Her owners in DC (also real pieces of work) were so hoping this would be Katrina 2.
