Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long on Sunday took a shot at San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz and others he said “spout off” about relief efforts in Puerto Rico after the island took the brunt of two major hurricanes.
“What I don’t have patience for is the fact that what we’re trying to do and what we have successfully done is we have established a joint field office within San Juan,” Long said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.”
He said FEMA is “having daily conversations with all of the mayors” and “working with the governor and his leadership to be able to create unified objectives.”
“If mayors decide not to be a part of that, then the response is fragmented,” Long said. “And the bottom line is, is that we’re pushing everybody, we’re trying to push her, in there.”
“You know, we can choose to look at what the mayor spouts off or what other people spout off, but we can also choose to see what’s actually being done, and that’s what I would ask,” Long replied.
President Trump has spent the weekend at odds with those who claim the White House has not done enough in response to the devastation in Puerto Rico.
