    Retired Lieutenant General: While Trump Golfs, San Juan’s Mayor Is ‘Living On A Cot’

    “And the president has shown again, you don’t give a damn about poor people.”


    The retired lieutenant general who led the effort to bring aid to Louisiana after it was ravaged by Hurricane Katrina didn’t mince words when talking about the president’s response to the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico.

    On Saturday morning, President Donald Trump unleashed a series of tweets taking aim at San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz. In them, he accused Democrats of having convinced Cruz to be “nasty” to him, called Cruz’s leadership “poor” and said that other leaders in Puerto Rico “want everything to be done for them.” The tweets were sent from his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey.

    In an interview with CNN later in the day, retired Lt. General Russel L. Honoré tore down Trump’s remarks:

    “The mayor’s living on a cot, and I hope the president has a good day at golf,” he told CNN.

    Honoré said the crisis in Puerto Rico is even larger than what he faced during Katrina.

    “Is Puerto Rico worse than what you found here in Katrina?” CBS News correspondent Michelle Miller asked Honoré on Friday.

    “Oh, hell yeah,” Honore said. “The number one priority is saving lives and when you’re saving lives, you’ve gotta figure out what rules you’re gonna break. All the rules we live by are designed for peacetime.”

    “And this is what?” Miller asked.

    “This is like a war,” he said.

    In another interview with CNN, Honoré tied Trump’s response to a overall lack of compassion to marginalized people.

    “And the president has shown again, you don’t give a damn about poor people,” Honoré told CNN. “You don’t give a damn about people of color and the SOB that rides around in Air Force One is denying services needed by the people of Puerto Rico.”

    Lt. General Russel L. Honoré tells it like it is. I agree.

    Now Trump is attacking the media and San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz. Sad....

    While residents of Puerto Rico struggle to get access to basic necessities like potable water and food, President Donald Trump has launched a full-fledged attack on the news media and, even more concerning, San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz.

    TRUMP MAKES PUERTO RICO CRISIS ABOUT TRUMP

    Yeah, we care about civil rights and humanity - as opposed to Trump's history of racism.

    You are intellectually dishonest, and you know it. At least it means you aren't dumber than a rock
