San Juan Mayor and FEMA Official Debate Hurricane Response
Oct 03, 2017, 02:15
"The fact is that Puerto Rico has been destroyed by two hurricanes", the President said.
"Let me stress this: I am committed to collaborating with everybody", he said. "Outside of the fake news or politically motivated ingrates", Trumptweeted.
Of course President Trump Tweeted this from the golf course, where he's enjoying some R&R this weekend. "I don't know what world Trump is living in".
He suggested officials or people on the island - it is not clear exactly who the president is referring to - are not doing enough themselves to recover from the crisis left by Hurricane Maria, that "they want everything to be done for them".
US President Donald Trump has been warned to "quiet down" his Twitter account in the wake of Hurricane Maria's impact on Puerto Rico.
Cruz said all she wanted was for the federal government to do everything possible to ease the plight of millions of islanders still lacking food, electricity and fresh water.
Trump, along with First Lady Melania Trump, is set to visit the island on Tuesday.
Ohio's Republican governor John Kasich, who challenged Mr Trump for the Republican nomination a year ago, also voiced criticism of the President's comments.
"No one can believe we are actually as a USA government doing everything we can", Gutierrez said Friday. "Totally unable to", Trump said, explaining the island's police and truck drivers are "substantially gone" on the island as they focus on their families or are unable to travel to work. "We would like to give them a bottle of water and food immediately", he said.
"Foreign flag ships are typically not allowed in to deliver these products unless USA carriers can't do it, and the administration's view was they got all the commodities in to Puerto Rico, they didn't need to waive the Jones Act".
US Senator Bernie Sanders told CNN on Sunday that skin color may be a factor in Trump's response. "I wouldn't be surprised if he said, I need more troops in order to manage this distribution until Puerto Rico itself can get back on its feet", she said. "They just had service for five minutes and they just let me know they were okay".
That order included Puerto Rico, but expired last week shortly after Maria struck.
"We need to prepare ourselves for a mass transfer of people", said Asencio.
He also followed up his criticism of San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz from earlier today saying his actions will speak louder than her words.
Shaun King, a writer and liberal activist with a popular social-media presence, said the president's tweet targeting Ms. Cruz contained "the most awful, racist, despicable things Trump has ever said".
Wolff said: "You can compare Malaysia to Silverstone probably, where we have been very good at high speed". For Ricciardo it was an eighth podium in 11 races, and another sign that Red Bull is coming back strongly.
Manchester City have confirmed that new £52million signing Benjamin Mendy has ruptured the cruciate ligament in his right knee. Steve Nicol says Pep Guardiola and Man City will need to start tinkering after Benjamin Mendy suffered a torn ACL.

The coup left Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah movement in control only of self-rule enclaves in the West Bank. The PA does not believe in the legitimacy of Hamas' arms. "If it does then it's a non-starter for Israel", he said.
The Rams ripped off 19 consecutive points and squeezed out the remaining minutes to win a game where they entered as underdogs. Even though they lost the game, the 49ers have plenty of positives to build on going into the game against the Cardinals.
What happened Sunday? The Giants won, thanks to Pablo Sandoval's walk-off home run against the Padres in Game 162 ( SF 5, SD 4 ). Ted Barrett, who was behind the plate for Cain's flawless game on June 13, 2012, also called the balls and strikes Saturday .
Gareth Bale has been left out of Real Madrid's squad to face Espanyol on Sunday, with the Wales global nursing a calf complaint. The pair are joined on the sidelines by Theo Hernandez, Karim Benzema , Mateo Kovacic and Marcelo .
