Puerto Rican mayor of San Juan Carmen Yulin Cruz, who made headlines following the disaster which struck the nation, has once again taken a stab at President Donald Trump, and this time it’s far more serious than just a regular rant, as she accused the commander-in-chief of committing a genocide, for not doing more to support the recovery efforts in the island territory.
Cruz issued her shocking accusations in a text message which she sent to Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez, who is an Illinois Democrat of Puerto Rican heritage, and has been recently pleading for more help for the island in the wake of two hurricanes.
“I ask every American that has love, and not hate in their hearts, to stand with Puerto Rico and let this President know we WILL NOT BE LEFT TO DIE,” said the mayor in the statement, which she asked Mt. Gutierrez to read on the House floor during a press conference recently.
In the statement, the mayor continued, writing, “I ask the United Nations, UNICEF and the world to stand with the people of Puerto Rico and stop the genocide that will result from the lack of appropriate action of a President that just does not get it because he has been incapable of looking in our eyes and seeing the pride that burns fiercely in our hearts and souls.”
As of right now, an official response by the White House to Cruz’s hateful and startling comments hasn’t been released, but one is expected to be soon enough, and will likely cause complications for the San Juan mayor.
