“Well, maybe from where she’s standing it’s a good news story. When you’re drinking from a creek, it’s not a good news story. When you don’t have food for a baby, it’s not a good news story. When you have to pull people down from their buildings, because — I’m sorry, but that really upsets me and frustrates me.’

‘I would ask her to come down here and visit the towns and then make a statement like that, which frankly, it is an irresponsible statement. And it contrasts with the statements of support that I have been getting since yesterday when I got that call from the White House.’

‘This is, dammit, this is not a good news story. This is a ‘people are dying’ story. This is a ‘life or death’ story. This is ‘there’s a truckload of stuff that cannot be taken to people’ story. This is a story of a devastation that continues to worsen.”

A White House official’s praise of the government response to Hurricane Maria made the mayor of San Juan pop off.

Elaine Duke said on Thursday she was “very satisified” with the government’s response to the aftermath, and even went as far as calling it a “good news story.”

But the idea that there was anything good about the news angered Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of San Juan.

Mrs. Cruz called it “an irresponsible statement.”

And of course, Donald Trump had a lot to say:

“The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.”
