Puerto Rico Gov. Rossello claps back at Donald Trump’s threat to end federal relief assistance to the hurricane-ravaged island in the midst of a humanitarian crisis: “We’re requesting support that any of our fellow citizens would receive.”

Gov. Ricardo Rossello tweeted: “The U.S. citizens in Puerto Rico are requesting the support that any of our fellow citizens would receive across our Nation.”

Rossello’s comments come after Trump sent out a series of heartless tweets attacking the island. “Puerto Rico survived the Hurricanes, now a financial crisis looms largely of their own making,” says Sharyl Attkisson. “A total lack of accountability say the Governor. Electric and all infrastructure was disaster before hurricanes. Congress to decide how much to spend.”

“We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!”

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz slammed Trump saying, “It is not that you do not get it; you are incapable of fulfilling the moral imperative to help the people of PR. Shame on you!”

Donald Trump’s actions are a disgrace and is an insult to every American and the ideals this country stands for. We do not leave our people behind or in distress.
