Kirsten Gillibrand just invited one of Trump’s worst enemies to his State of the Union address

- Januari 29, 2018

Trump delivers his State of the Union speech on Tuesday, and when he looks out into the crowd he’s in for a surprise. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) has invited San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz as her guest. Cruz made waves this past year for her vocal denunciation of Trump in the wake of the hurricane that devastated the island territory.

Gillibrand made a point of the invitation on her Twitter, by lauding Cruz for her superb leadership during the natural disaster and adding that the president and Congress need to be doing a much better job in Puerto Rico. The island has been abandoned under our current leadership and was neglected before the hurricane struck. Gillibrand tweeted:

Gillibrand, who has been suggested as a 2020 candidate, shows great leadership by embracing Cruz. The island has been incredibly neglected by the current administration, with estimates stating that half of Puerto Rico still doesn’t have power. One can’t but help think that Trump would be much more attentive to the problem if it were an island full of white people. His continued negligence is unacceptable.

As Cruz so perfectly put it: Mr. Trump do your job.
