San Juan Mayor: Trump Lives in ‘Alternative Reality World’

Friday on CNN’s “New Day,” San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz criticized President Donald Trump for giving his administration a score of a perfect “10” on the hurricane recovery efforts in Puerto Rico.

Cruz said, “Well, if it is a 10 out of a scale of 100, of course. It is still a failing grade. FEMA personnel has admitted that they don’t have the generators they need to provide to hospitals, so hospitals are still running on inappropriate generators, even though FEMA had mentioned that the generators would be here.”

She continued, “FEMA representatives have admitted that they really haven’t been able to canvass less than two percent of the people who have lost the roofs in their homes. FEMA administrators have admitted they are still in a recovery side, and even though they have stepped up their game, and I have to say that in the last week they have stepped up their game, it still isn’t enough.”

She added, “I think the president lives in an alternative reality world that only he believes the things that he is saying.”
