San Juan Mayor Gets Emotional Blasting Trump Admin: ‘This is Not a Good News Story…People are Dying!’(Mediaite)

Carmen Yulín Cruz, The Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico appeared on CNN Friday morning, to speak about the devastation that was wrought upon the island by Hurricane Maria and efforts to respond to the disaster.

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota played a clip of Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke’s (let’s say hamfisted) remarks from Thursday, in which she said the relief efforts made for “a really good story.”

Shaking her head, Cruz replied “well, maybe from where she’s standing it’s a good news story.”
