Trump says Puerto Rico mayors 'want everything done for them'

Lacking Water, Electricity And Phones, Many In Puerto Rico Are Still Waiting For Aid

The mayor of the island's capital city has complained about a slow response to the disaster. Santiago's mother lived with his brother in a house in the mountains of Dos Bocas de Utuado, an area about 60 miles from San Juan that sits within a rainforest. "A lot of people lost their homes, and they are still living in them".

Singer Rihanna criticized President Donald Trump's response to Hurricane Maria's devastating impact on Puerto Rico in a tweet on Thursday.

President Trump tried to defend his botched response to the disaster in Puerto Rico by explaining to America what an island is. "Very tough situation." Later, he said, "People can't believe how successful it's been". It is unclear if he was praising first responders again or others in the USA territory. His senior general leading military relief operations in Puerto Rico, Lieutenant General Jeff Buchanan, said they were clearing roads and getting more supplies to people, but recognized "it's still a long haul".

He further said that the results of recovery efforts would speak much louder than complaints by San Juan Mayor.

Governor of Puerto Rico Ricardo Rossello attends a news conference days after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, in San Juan, Puerto Rico September 30, 2017. "The relief effort is under control". Schumer says Trump should focus on helping Puerto Rico instead of tweeting against Cruz, "who's watching her people die".

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, a Republican, urged an end to the political fingerpointing. "But we have no time for patience anymore".

"And a very big question is, what are we going to do with the power plant?"

"We must all be united in offering assistance to everyone suffering in Puerto Rico and elsewhere in the wake of this awful disaster".

If we had beaten Burnley , we would have been eighth or something like that and climbing up the table. Which channel can I watch Everton vs Burnley? "If you play European football, you don't have time".

On the eastern side of Orlando, in a heavily Puerto Rican community, donations are pouring in from people anxious about family on the Caribbean island ravaged by Hurricane Maria. All the island's landlines are operating but only about 11% of the cell towers are operational.

Duncan also said the US -flagged ships, manned by unionized USA mariners, can handle the load of food, water, medicines, and other aid.

Ground Reports: With electricity still widely out, many merchants are not accepting credit cards, making a cash infusion increasingly necessary for residents who need to purchase food, medicine, gas and other supplies.

"I'm sorry, but that really upsets me and frustrates me", Yulin Cruz said. And amid the widespread disruption, it is often hard to get kids to a doctor, especially for families who can't afford to drive long distances on a tank running out of gasoline.

Meanwhile, 51 of 69 hospitals are now open, with most running on diesel-powered generators.

On Sunday, however, she brushed off the criticism, saying that when patchy internet connections finally allowed her to see the president's tweets, "I smiled". That needs to be resolved immediately.

We flew into the island after being told it was completely wiped out. They need more help. "They were at their life's end prior to the hurricanes", said Trump. Asencio said Thursday as he met with Puerto Rican community volunteers loading more hurricane aid at a warehouse in Wynwood.

"Let us not talk about the debt, let us not talk about the cost of reconstruction". Loss of life from the storm is one thing.
