Trump to the People of Puerto Rico: ‘Do Not Believe the #FakeNews!’

Following his morning tweetstorm slamming San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz for criticizing his administration’s response to Hurricane Maria while saying Puerto Rican victims want everything done for them, President Donald Trump followed that up a few hours later with another tweet calling the citizens “great people” while patting himself on the back for doing an “amazing job.”
