San Juan mayor says Trump is 'looking for an excuse'

Workers unload shipping containers from a Crowley Maritime barge at the port in San Juan Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria ravaged the island Lacking Water, Electricity And Phones, Many In Puerto Rico Are Still Waiting For Aid

"People are dying, and he needs to respond appropriately and give proper direction".

Yulin Cruz was reacting to an earlier comment by acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke that the life-saving efforts of relief workers was a "good news story".

"Well maybe from where she's standing it's a good news story", Yulín Cruz told CNN's Alisyn Camerota after she was played the clip on "New Day".

Since Hurricane Maria overwhelmed the people of Puerto Rico, hundreds if not thousands of people locally have donated supplies to send to the island.

Three Savannah State University volleyball players are working with members of the International Education Center staff to help the people of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria left much of the USA territory destroyed.

"The electric power grid in Puerto Rico is totally shot".

Trump, who is scheduled to visit Puerto Rico on Tuesday, was slow to realize the magnitude of the problem.

After saying little publicly about the devastation in the days after Maria's landfall, Trump has in recent days been promising a robust response.

The health system was already precarious, with a population that is generally sicker, older and poorer than that of the mainland, long waits and a severe shortage of specialists as a result of a decade-long economic recession.

The storm left Puerto Rico with a humanitarian crisis.

"...want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort". "What you see here with me is not the reality of the people of Puerto Rico".

"FEMA & First Responders are doing a GREAT job in Puerto Rico", Trump said in a series of tweets, referring to the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Puerto Rico's governor, Ricardo Rossello, can't afford to be nervous about turf issues. Santiago's mother lived with his brother in a house in the mountains of Dos Bocas de Utuado, an area about 60 miles from San Juan that sits within a rainforest.

"We're one of the few restaurants that have a generator", said Daniela Santini, 19, who works there.

Many people are waiting in lines for hours to access ATMs with no guarantee they'll be able to withdraw cash.

Trump said U.S. military teams and the Federal Emergency Management Agency were doing "amazing work" and credited the island's governor and others with a "fantastic job". "We're bringing in more", Buchanan told CNN. After visiting the island on Monday he came away thinking that an organized supply chain was the island's most vital need.

We flew into the island after being told it was completely wiped out. Indeed, the military is sending more troops and helicopters to the island to ensure that. Adding in other storms and earthquakes, this year could be the costliest on record for the industry and tip some insurers and reinsurers into the red.

President Donald Trump says his administration has "done a great job with the nearly impossible situation in Puerto Rico" after Hurricane Maria struck the island.

FEMA said Sunday it has expanded its delivery of food and water throughout Puerto Rico, though officials stressed that many people still lack the essentials. "We do have severe logistical limitations".

Rossello also announced the moratorium on Twitter in Spanish. Governor said "great job!" "There is no functional operations structure".

But the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico's capital, hit back at stories about how well the relief efforts are going. Trump went on to say, "This is a thing called the Atlantic Ocean". He said she had "poor leadership ability".

When Long was asked about Trump's suggestion that Puerto Ricans wanted "everything to be done for them", he said, "I believe the Puerto Ricans are pulling their weight".
