Trump Says Puerto Ricans "Want Everything Done For Them"

Trump Says Puerto Ricans

At a news conference Saturday, Rossello wouldn't comment on Trump's tweets, saying he hadn't seen them and would not be drawn into a political fight. The Trump administration says part of the problem is access to the island but Trump's slowness to acknowledge the disaster, focusing instead on picking a fight with National Football League players, and a new tax plan, seemed to indicate that Puerto Rico hurricane relief wasn't the administration's top priority.

The president plans to visit Puerto Rico on Tuesday. He said the government is "fully engaged in the disaster and the response and recovery effort".

Since Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico with gale-force winds more than a week ago, frustration has mounted amid deteriorating conditions. Vice president Mike Pence will receive an in-person briefing at FEMA headquarters in Washington.

"Go ask PR Gov about responsiveness", Scavino, Jr. wrote - digging up a pre-election tweet of Cruz's in which she said, in Spanish, that she doesn't think Trump deserves to be president.

"If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying", she said at a press conference. "I do reiterate that the only way for this to work is if we have collaboration".

"Let me stress this: I am committed to collaborating with everybody", he said. "And I can not fathom the thought that the greatest nation of the world can not figure out logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles long", she said in a press conference, The Washington Post reported.

Maria, the most powerful storm to strike Puerto Rico in almost 90 years, has killed at least 16 people on the island.

In an interview Friday with CNN, Buchanan said the Pentagon had 10,000 people helping with hurricane response efforts and that more were being added.

The president has been accused of not acting quickly enough to send aid to the United States territory, which was left without electricity and in crisis by Hurricane Maria.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, John Legend, Lady Gaga and more stars quickly reacted with outrage and disgust over Trump's criticism on their own social media accounts, with many calling the president out for spending time at his golf club rather than taking action. But first, the White House needs to send a request to Congress for the money.

In response, Trump said Cruz's critiques were politically driven.

Metro Pavia, which operates several hospital campuses across the island, warned Friday that it was closing emergency rooms in Arecibo and Ponce because it did not have enough diesel.

Sergeant Samuel Perez of the San Juan Police said he and his colleagues were working 12 hour shifts and dealing with, among other things, break-ins at markets. In 2016, the population was estimated to be just 3.4 million, down more than 10% since a peak of 3.8 million in 2004.

Jesus Rosario, 23, was cleaning the streets of San Juan on Saturday morning for a city contractor. He said airport and port capacity is increasing.
