San Juan mayor slams Trump on tweet about Puerto Rico aid

San Juan Mayor Carmen Cruz slammed President Trump, disputing his claim around aid provided to Puerto Rico. ’Yet another big storm heading to Puerto Rico. Will it ever end?’, Trump wrote claiming approval of $92 billion last year. Calling his tweet ’ludicrous’, Cruz blamed Trump for the deaths of 3000 Puerto Ricans while saying ’this racist man did not have it within him to do his job’.

It was closer to 42 million, of which 12 - 14 million actually went to doing the work of rebuilding PR? Is this what graft and corruption look like? "Sure is nice of you to give us this 92 million. This 40 million sure will help. The people of Puerto Rico will certainly put this 14 million to good use. "

The figure is only slighty incorrect. $41 billion was allotted for Puerto Rico. Around $10-$12 billion has been paid so far. the other $50 billion that equals the $91 billion he talks about is promised by the US for the future.
