“Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, whose parents were born in Puerto Rico, fired back at President Trump’s attacks against Puerto Rico officials Saturday morning, saying the president will “go straight to hell.”

“You’re going straight to hell, @realDonaldTrump. No long lines for you. Someone will say, ‘Right this way, sir.’ They’ll clear a path,” Miranda tweeted.

Miranda took to Twitter to defend the mayor of San Juan after Trump fired off a series of early-morning tweets attacking her “poor leadership” following the devastation from Hurricane Maria.

“She has been working 24/7. You have been GOLFING. You’re going straight to hell. Fastest golf cart you ever took,” Miranda wrote to the president, who is spending the weekend at his golf club in New Jersey.

“The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump,” Trump tweeted. “Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help.”

Miranda fired back: “Did you tweet this one from the first hole, 18th hole, or the club? Anyway, it’s a lie. You’re a congenital liar.”

Trump also accused Puerto Rican workers of not assisting in the relief efforts.

“They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort,” Trump tweeted. “10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job.”

Miranda has continued to urge his nearly 1.7 million Twitter followers to donate to relief efforts via the Hispanic Federation.
