Trump Slams ‘Crazed and Incompetent Mayor of San Juan’ After GOP Disaster Aid Bill Stalls

President Donald Trump was not happy — at all — Monday night after he says Democrats “killed a Bill that would have provided great relief to Farmers.”

“The Democrats today killed a Bill that would have provided great relief to Farmers and yet more money to Puerto Rico despite the fact that Puerto Rico has already been scheduled to receive more hurricane relief funding than any ‘place’ in history,” Trump wrote.

He continued on: “The people of Puerto Rico are GREAT, but the politicians are incompetent or corrupt. Puerto Rico got far more money than Texas & Florida combined, yet their government can’t do anything right, the place is a mess – nothing works.”

The president then concluded: “FEMA & the Military worked emergency miracles, but politicians like the crazed and incompetent Mayor of San Juan have done such a poor job of bringing the Island back to health. 91 Billion Dollars to Puerto Rico, and now the Dems want to give them more, taking dollars away from our Farmers and so many others. Disgraceful!”

Earlier on Monday, the Senate voted to end debate on a GOP disaster aid proposal. Democrats and the Governor of Puerto Rico had argued the GOP measure — backed by Trump — did not provide enough aid to the hurricane-ravaged area.
