Donald Trump is under fire once again for kicking out a series of tweets that criticized San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz and the Puerto Rican officials who have pleaded for aid after Hurricane Maria.
From his New Jersey golf course, on Saturday morning the president accused the San Juan mayor and other officials of “poor leadership ability” for the region’s need for assistance in the wake of devastation from the hurricane. Trump continued by saying, “They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort,”
Citizens and celebrities alike took to Twitter to criticize Trump’s tweets. Backlash poured in from Hollywood’s biggest stars including John Legend, Lady Gaga, and George Takei.
Lady Gaga blasted the president for his ‘poor leadership, ‘ and George Takei ended his tweet expressing he felt ‘Disgusted’ by Trump’s latest rant.
John Legend was direct with his frustration, only tweeting that “Trump continues to dominate the s–*— president ever competition,” he wrote.
Trump has been criticized for what some are calling an unacceptable response to the hurricane-ravaged U.S. property.
