Trump continues criticism of San Juan mayor

President Trump doubled down on his attacks of San Juan Mayor Carmen Yul n Cruz on Saturday, saying the federal government's recovery efforts will speak louder than her criticism.

"Results of recovery efforts will speak much louder than complaints by San Juan Mayor. Doing everything we can to help great people of PR!" Trump tweeted.

The president launched his attacks of Cruz early Saturday, accusing her of having poor leadership, and working with Democrats.

The Trump administration has faced criticism over the past week for the slow movement of aid to the U.S. territory, which was left without power by the hurricane.

Cruz begged for help on Friday, and criticized the federal government's response to the crisis.

"I will do what I never thought I was going to do. I am begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying. If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency," she said.
