Sen. Bernie Sanders is criticizing President Donald Trump's attacks on the mayor of devastated Puerto Rico's largest city, calling his words "unspeakable."

The Vermont lawmaker says on CNN that Trump's tweeting from his "fancy golf club" in New Jersey attacking San Juan mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz "is unspeakable. And I don't know what world Trump is living in."

Trump on Saturday criticized Cruz's "poor leadership ability" and accused some of Puerto Rico of wanting "everything to be done for them."

Sanders is also suggesting that Trump may care less about helping the people of Puerto Rico because of their race.

Sanders says that, due to some of Trump's past comments, he thinks "we have a right to be suspect that he is treating the people of Puerto Rico in a different way than he has treated the people of Texas or Florida."
