President Donald Trump launched an early morning Twitter attack on the mayor of San Juan, saying she is being manipulated by the Democratic Party, and told to be “nasty” to him.

He followed that up by blaming her leadership for the slowness in repairs, while calling Puerto Rican workers lazy, saying they “want everything done for them.”

Throughout Friday, Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz made multiple appeals to mainland U.S. citizens that “people are dying” in Puerto Rico, and was mildly critical of the president for not sending more help to the U.S. territory that was ravaged by a hurricane.

Later in the day, Cruz ramped up her appeal, specifically addressing Trump, saying, “We are not as second-class citizens, but as animals that can be disposed of.”

Trump, who has a history of over-reacting on Twitter to even the smallest slight, lashed out at Cruz early Saturday morning, tweeting, “The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.”

President Donald Trump is to announce on Saturday that he will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett as an Associate Justice on the United States Supreme Court.

"President Trump has selected Judge Amy Coney Barrett, the favorite candidate of conservatives, to succeed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and will try to force Senate confirmation before Election Day in a move that would significantly alter the ideological makeup of the Supreme Court for years," New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker reported Friday.

"Mr. Trump plans to announce on Saturday that she is his choice, according to people close to the process who asked not to be identified disclosing the decision in advance. The president met with Judge Barrett at the White House this week and came away impressed with a jurist that leading conservatives told him would be a female Antonin Scalia, referring to the justice who died in 2016 and for whom Judge Barrett clerked," the newspaper explained.
