San Juan Mayor Rips Trump’s Puerto Rico Boast: He’s ‘Lying Through His Teeth’

‘We died because many in the political class in Puerto Rico decided to dance to Donald Trump’s tune rather than doing what everybody ought to do’

RUSH EXCERPT: 

CRUZ: "First of all, this is a very painful day and shameful day for Puerto Rico. I hoped I wasn’t right, because that means that probably most of those 2,975 people did not die. And to hear the president just today and the White House yesterday just recant their self accolades about how well they did, it just means that he just doesn’t get it, isn’t capable of getting it. We died because bureaucracy and inefficiency took hold of things. We died because many in the political class in Puerto Rico decided to dance to Donald Trump’s tune rather than doing what everybody ought to do, which is tell the truth, no matter how mighty the person you’re telling the truth seems. These are 2,975 people that will no longer see the light of day. These are parents, children, grandchildren, grandparents. People whose lives will never be the same."
