Carmen Yulin Vruz

The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, strongly denounced Donald Trump Tuesday night after the president visited the island, calling him the “miscommunicator in chief” and “insulting.”

“He was insulting to the people of Puerto Rico,” Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz said Tuesday night on MSNBC hours after meeting Trump face-to-face at a briefing with Puerto Rican leaders and the president. Beyond the briefing, Trump also toured damaged areas and helped distribute supplies, flicking paper towels into a crowd with the motion of a jump shot in basketball. All of it, Cruz said, was disingenuous.

Trump donor intervened to keep Ivanka and Don Jr from being indicted on felony fraud

Ivanka Trump and Jared nearly indicted

According to a new ProPublica report, Trump attorney Marc Kasowitz managed to make the case against Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump disappear. The Manhattan District Attorney’s office was building a criminal case for misleading possible buyers of Trump’s SoHo hotel and condo that wouldn’t sell. The evidence was based on emails that the two sent acknowledging that they used inflated numbers claiming the condos were selling well, hoping buyers would be eager to invest.

Four people have seen the emails where the Trumps discussed how to be on message about the fake information for possible buyers. They also feared a reporter might know about the fraudulent numbers. In another email, Donald Trump Jr. reassured a broker who was worried about the false numbers, promising that no one would ever find out about it. He explained that only those in the email chain in the Trump Organization knew of the false numbers.

PR trucker strike fake new by Trump

There's a conspiracy that Puerto Rican truck drivers are striking and delaying the delivery of crucial supplies — and Donald Trump may have bought into it.

Right-wing blogs The Conservative Treehouse and The Gateway Pundit recently published stories alleging that local unions were striking following the devastation of Hurricane Maria, preventing the delivery of food, water, and other crucial supplies.

The crux of the issue seems to be a quote from a Huffington Post interview with US Air Force Colonel Michael Valle, reports Snopes.

Hundreds of emails have been sent since January from White House addresses to accounts on the Kushner family domain, these people said.
