FEMA's Long: Focus On Actions, Not What 'Mayor Spouts Off'

(Fox News/"Fox News Sunday")

Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long on Sunday took a swipe at San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz and others who “spout off” about relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

In remarks on “Fox News Sunday,” as Long said, “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.”

He added that the agency 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.”

Asked if Cruz wasn’t participating in the FEMA effort, Long didn’t give a direct answer, but said she “spouts off.”

“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 Donald Trump attacked over the weekend, saying she had “poor leadership ability.” On Sunday, he also attacked “politically motivated ingrates.”
