"Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and other celebrities slammed President Trump on Saturday morning following Trump's Twitter tirade targeting San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, who had criticized what she called the federal government's unhurried response to the destruction caused by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
