“We don’t have time for the political noise,” Brock Long told ABC’s Martha Raddatz on Sunday.
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) director Brock Long responded to tweets from San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, calling it “political noise” during an interview on ABC’s “This Week.”
ABC’s Martha Raddatz asked Long about tweets that Cruz sent out, which accused FEMA of not doing anything to help people who had lost power in a hospital.
“We filtered out the mayor a long time ago. We don’t have time for the political noise,” Long told Raddatz.
Long explained how poor infrastructure in Puerto Rico makes it difficult for FEMA to keep the power on, but that they are doing everything in their power to keep the power on.
“As far as the political noise, we filter that out, keep our heads down and continue to make progress and push forward restoring essential functions for Puerto Rico,” Long concluded.
