Lin-Manuel Miranda blasted Trump over his attacks on San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz who criticized the federal government’s response to the devastation that Hurricane Maria caused in Puerto Rico.
Trump hit back this morning on Twitter, slamming the mayor’s
“poor leadership ability.”
Miranda used Trump’s favorite means of communication to vent his anger at the commander in chief’s comments,
“You’re going straight to hell. No long lines for you. Someone will say, ‘Right this way, sir.’ They’ll clear a path.”
The Hamilton creator has family in Puerto Rico and is among a number of stars who have made emotional pleas on behalf of the territory.
Miranda has encouraged people to donate to the nonprofit Hispanic Federation, and is putting together an all-star charity single that will be available to buy on Oct. 6.
