Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke faced harsh backlash after saying the Trump administration's recovery effort in Puerto Rico is a "good news story".
"When you're drinking from a creek, it's not a good news story".
"We have fuel trucks sitting out there in what we call a "quick reaction force" with Marines who are ready to go, map out which hospitals they have to go to and we will get there before the lights go out and people die", Lt. Col. Mainz said. "It's a life or death story", Cruz told CNN.
Her lone tweet followed a series of Tweets by Trump about an hour earlier, in which he accused the island territory of "wanting everything to be done for them" and Cruz herself of exhibiting "poor leadership" and being "nasty" because she was told to be that way by Democrats. "We want them to be safe, and sound, and secure, and we will be there every day until that happens".
The San Juan mayor continued, saying the three-star general deployed to Puerto Rico has confessed "he doesn't have enough troops, and he doesn't have enough equipment of what he needs to get the situation under control", echoing the sentiments Cruz made prior to the general's arrival. "I am not going to be distracted by small comments, by politics, by petty issues".
"The truth is staring us in the face. All I have is time for people to move forward, get help and what kind of a Puerto Rican, what kind of a human would I be if I know of other mayors that are getting no water and no food and I just look the other way and just had my city taken care of?"
"I have not received any help, and we ran out of food yesterday", said Mari Olivo, a 27-year-old homemaker whose husband was pushing a shopping cart with empty plastic gallon jugs while their two children, 9 and 7, each toted a large bucket.
Insulin-dependent patients are "going insane for ice" to keep their medical supplies cold, Cruz said, while other patients haven't had their scheduled dialysis or chemotherapy in days. CBS News' David Begnaud traveled to Aguadilla, which was one of the hardest-hit towns on the western tip of Puerto Rico. "And I can not fathom the thought that the greatest nation in the world can not figure out logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles long".
"Sir, we just need help, please", Cruz said before Trump hung up on her.
"The electrical grid and other infrastructure were already in very, very poor shape", he said.
It was an unusually pointed rebuke from the president in the heat of a disaster - a time when leaders often put aside partisan differences in the name of solidarity.
