San Juan's Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz blasted President Donald Trump on Thursday after the president threatened to withdraw federal aid from Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria.


"@POTUS 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!" she wrote on Twitter.

She continued, "@POTUS your comments about Puerto Rico are unbecoming of a Commander in Chief they seem more to come from a 'Hater in Chief.'"

Earlier on Thursday, Trump went on a Twitter tirade against Puerto Rico, accusing the island territory of being mired in a financial mess "largely of their own making."

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