SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — The mayor of Puerto Rico’s largest city became an international star when she donned a T-shirt and baseball cap and begged for help after Hurricane Maria left San Juan in shambles.

And she became a darling of the left when she took aim at President Trump for not doing enough to help her people.

Six months later, constituents of Carmen Yulin Cruz are still struggling for food, shelter and power, and many have turned on the leader who they say turned her global close-up into a never-ending parade of self-promotion.

“If we don’t get food and water into people’s hands, what we are going to see is something close to a genocide,” Cruz told an international audience after Hurricane Maria roared onto the island in September knocking out power and leveling entire neighborhoods in its path.

    The hurricane revealed a corruption in the city of San Juan that rivals the corruption of Detroit & Baltimore at their worst.
    Several months after emergency electrical supplies had been sent to the Island, FEMA & other federal agents raided local warehouses where the goods had been stashed.
    Locals say the relief supplies were hidden in order to get additional supplies from the mainland & bolster the Mayors political image
