Kim Kardashian West tore into President Trump after he told Puerto Rican residents recovering from Hurricane Maria to “not believe the fake news.”

“They don’t have power to watch the news!!! Please stop tweeting & golfing while people are dying! Please step up & help!,” Kardashian West tweeted. 

Kardashian West has become a vocal critic of Trump, saying last month that her four-year-old daughter North West would be a better president than him.

“To the people of Puerto Rico: Do not believe the #FakeNews!” Trump tweeted.

“My Administration, Governor @RicardoRossello, and many others are working together to help the people of Puerto Rico in every way…#FakeNews critics are working overtime, but we’re getting great marks from the people that truly matter!”

Trump is facing criticism for his tweets attacking San Juan mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, saying she showed “poor leadership ability” in the response to the storm.
