The mayor of the largest city in Puerto Rico is open to meeting with President Trump when he visits the U.S. territory on Tuesday after he spent much of Saturday ripping her criticisms of the federal response to Hurricane Maria.

“If he asks to meet with me, of course, I will meet with him,” San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz said on ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.

The interview was Cruz’s first opportunity to respond to Trump’s string of 20 tweets on Saturday, many of which blasted her for criticizing the administration’s response to Hurricane Maria.

“Any dialogue that goes on just has to be able to produce results,” said Cruz on ABC’s “This Week” in another excerpt.

    Go Fluck yourself, the people spoke said you wouldn’t let them get to the supplies. You are dead as a fish in the fangs of a wildcat.

  • Pete Bundy says:

    Didn’t all this negative talk from this mayor happen after Luis Guitterize stop by and have a chat with her? You know the guy from Chicago.

  • Janis says:

    So far the Governor and the Representative in Congress have given the Trump administration praise for everything done. This mayor is a raging liberal, jumping on the Hate Trump bandwagon. I have no doubt that the Democratic Party has given her her marching orders. The goods have been delivered to the island by the US. Also troops to help with distribution and clean up. It is this mayor’s job to mobilize the residents of the island to help also. There are people up on mountains. She wants stuff airlifted to them. Fine. But she also has to realize that that cannot be done forever. She must think about getting those people down to where the goods are. She also must come to the reality that the island in such a disaster that the people should all be evacuated to mainland US and this island closed down. I know that that would mean she could no longer be a mayor anymore, but too bad so sad.

    No way I would stoop this low as to speak to this Elizabeth Warren acting POS, she would ask ME for a “PLEASE” meeting! But this is the typical low life style of being a Dem.!!!!

    The Mayor is passing the buck to others; since the majority are Democrats, who have been running the Island for the biggest part of 70 years. The Mayor of San Juan , is in a position to springboard to the Governorship. She is preparing to run for Governor and needs the establishment’s support. The Island government has been infiltrated by revolutionaries and terrorists thanks to academia. The idea is to keep the masses ignorant, ill inform and depending on their never ending/accomplished promises. There are some wonderful people in Puerto Rico; but the status quo is for the elites to get ahead on the US dime. For the most part jobs go to relatives of workers; therefore the Island is in bankruptcy. I know, I was born there to democrat family lived their politics and left a high School dropout at 15 years of age. My parents were fully supporters of the democrats the party of the poor and their promises. My parents died poorer then they were when they were born.
    In 1960 I watched John Kennedy debate Richard Nixon. I voted Republican and have never looked back. Today thanks to the opportunities afforded to me, by our great Country, I have an MBA, retired from military service, retired from Houston Police Department and successful business owner in Texas. Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, of San Juan, you are an ungrateful and poor example of a US citizen. You are part of the problem and the sad part is that you will be elected Governor. You are part of those that have led Puerto Rico, the Pearl of the Caribbean into bankruptcy,. Now you are looking for a scape goat and have taken on my President to advance yourself to higher office. He is a nice fellow, but takes s__ from no-one. I hope you are defeated. You are a piece of s–t. May God Bless President Trump and God Bless America!

    Why would President Trump want to meet with this woman? All she has done is to sit back and whine that the Federal Government come save her city. Other areas of Puerto Rico are doing what they can while getting assistance, but this mayor wants someone else to just save her. President Trump doesn’t need to meet with her, he just needs her to do her job.

    PR was a mess before the storm.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      Yes, a TOTAL MESS !!

      1. gvette says: usual, the DemonRATS come out of the woodwork, to blame Trump. I remember when Louisiana was flooded, and Barry didn’t want to interrupt his vacation.

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          Yes, I remember that and everything else that went wrong, he always had a way of being out of the country or I found out when you did, on the NEWS! Only a N—– could come up with smoke that thick!!

          1. gvette says:

            and the left loved it. Now for fun, research the PR mayor that’s been bitching. Seems she’s a crook.

  • NCnative says:

    For a political leader and city administrator, you have failed both your people and your office by refusing to attend a single meeting with FEMA, or any other aid related meeting. You are too busy complaining to do your own job only proves that you have no interest in helping, you only have an interest in creating conflict where there is none. How about doing your job first before complaining how others aren’t bowing to your agenda.

  • Jose says:

    Before you meet with Presdient Trump, how about showing at least us (citizens- those there and here) what “YOU” have personally done to help your own people. Have you mobilized the military, first responders, cleaning up roadways, getting water from the hills to the people, etc.
    I do not see any news about what “YOU” have done except complain about what the president has not done.

    1. her says:

      Well said Jose! as a results oriented person, you find solutions to problems before you sprout off your mouth. She is preparing to run for Governor and wants to show her base that she is unafraid of my President. She has found out and the longer she keeps blabbing her mouth, the shorter her stick will get. zzz her
