Trump Criticizes Puerto Rico Mayor Over 'Poor Leadership'

He also claimed "the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico" had demonstrated "poor leadership ability". "We've undertaken a massive federal mobilization to assist Puerto Rico".

"We've worked to clear 11 highways, we're continuing to push forward and open up those arteries to be able to pump more in", Long said. On Friday, she pleaded with the federal government to send more resources to Puerto Rico.

"I can not fathom that the thought that the greatest nation in the world can not figure out logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles", she said.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders hit the Post earlier Saturday, calling the report "false".

For Trump, the mayor's plea for help to deal with a hurricane that undid "decades of economic progress ... in 12 hours" was all about politics. I'm not surprised by the show she is putting on'.

Only moments after Trump's self-congratulatory remarks were broadcast, the mayor of San Juan went on television to unleash a damning indictment of the USA government's treatment of the 3.5 million Americans on the island. But he warned that the U.S. Congress would need to help rebuild the island.

"Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda Miranda has been active in his efforts to try to help hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico. It had followed another devastating storm, hurricane Irma.

In a series of tweets Saturday afternoon, Trump ripped "fake news critics" who are "working overtime" to attack his administration while actual Puerto Ricans give his team high marks. Not fair to FR or effort!

"When you don't have food for a baby, it's not a good news story", Cruz told broadcaster CNN on Friday.

She said on CNN: "This is a people-are-dying story".

"Dammit, this is not a good news story", Cruz said.

"This waiver will ensure that over the next ten days, all options are available to move and distribute goods to the people of Puerto Rico. Well, I'm sorry I don't have time for that".

Cruz then invited Duke to come witness the devastation of the towns and reconsider her statement. Luis says the disaster response should be "Just like any other state in the United States... should be". At least 16 people have reportedly died as a result of the hurricane, a number that's expected to rise as recovery efforts continue. It's a life-or-death story'.
