David Bossie to Puerto Rico Mayor: Put Down the Microphone and Help
David Bossie recommended to the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico that she stop giving interviews complaining about the federal hurricane relief she has received and start getting personally involved with the rebuilding.
"Put down the microphone and start helping your people," the former Trump deputy campaign manager advised on "Fox & Friends" Sunday.
Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz slammed President Trump for "killing us with the inefficiency and the bureaucracy" after Hurricane Maria razed the island a week and a half ago.
"I am done being polite. I am done being politically correct. I am mad as hell," she said Friday.
Trump hit back, saying that Cruz has "poor leadership ability" and that "they want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort."
The Federal Emergency Management Agency said that unlike other Puerto Rico mayors, Cruz has not yet been to FEMA's field office in San Juan and has not participated in relief efforts.
"Our planners on the ground need her input," a FEMA representative said.
Bossie agreed that so far, San Juan's mayor has been negligent.
"Start pushing materials down through the system," Bossie said.
"To have a mayor that's this out of touch, it's really unfortunate for the people of San Juan."
