Trump says Puerto Rico authorities showing poor leadership after hurricane

Puerto Rico Faces Extensive Damage After Hurricane Maria

"This is, damn it, this is not a good news story", Yulín Cruz told CNN.

Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz implored Trump from afar to "make sure somebody is in charge that is up to the task of saving lives", while the president asserted that USA officials and emergency personnel are working all-out against daunting odds, with "incredible" results.

This is a story of a devastation that continues to worsen because people are not getting food and water. He said, "We will not rest, however, until the people of Puerto Rico are safe", speaking in Washington. They're sleeping on cots and eating the same food as everyone else after their house flooded.

"You're at the same golf club now that you were at last weekend picking a fight with athletes while a humanitarian crisis grew in Puerto Rico", said Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA).

Perhaps one of the most ardent voices advocating for Puerto Rico in the Twitterverse is that of Lin-Manuel Miranda, the actor-singer-writer-composer behind Hamilton and In The Heights, whose family hails from Puerto Rico and who has visited the territory many times.

He said the agency is "having daily conversations with all of the mayors" and "working with the governor and his leadership to be able to create unified objectives".

Ms Cruz said the White House was failing to adequately cater to needs of Puerto Ricans, who are depending on bottled water and rationed food from the U.S. federal government. "We've undertaken a massive federal mobilization to assist Puerto Rico". The Department of Homeland Security has sent barges to deliver meals, water and other necessities to Puerto Rico. Duke and Trump spoke briefly about Puerto Rico but did not talk again until Tuesday, an administration official said.

"It's a love letter to Puerto Rico", he said.

"Trump posted a further series of tweets on Saturday afternoon, announcing "#fakenews critics are working overtime" and adding, "We must all be united in offering assistance to everyone suffering in Puerto Rico and elsewhere in the wake of this bad disaster".

Lady Gaga has joined other celebrities in criticising Donald Trump after he slammed the mayor of Puerto Rico's capital city San Juan over claims of a slow U.S. response to the storm-hit island.

"The only way for this to work is for us to have collaboration", Rossello said.

Trump lashed out in a series of morning tweets, while also suggesting that Puerto Ricans "want everything to be done for them" and had left the bulk of relief work to federal first responders and the military.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello has called the destruction to the island unprecedented, though the Republican has praised the USA government's relief efforts.

The Broadway star, whose parents moved to NY from Puerto Rico, said he is working on a new song to raise for disaster relief.
