Trump launches personal attack on mayor amid crisis in Puerto Rico

Rihanna urges Donald Trump to help the people of Puerto Rico

"Such poor leadership ability by the mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help", Mr. Trump said. "We can not be distracted by anything else", Cruz wrote alongside photographs of relief work on the island.

The Trump administration has given Puerto Rico's government "whatever we ask for" in the immediate aftermath of the hurricane, Rossello said.

In Washington, the acting US homeland security secretary, Elaine Duke, said yesterday that the federal response has been a good-news story.

Cruz is depicted holding a megaphone in her left hand as she stands in waist-deep flood water.

CHANG: I'm good. Thank you for joining us. She also said her complaints had resulted in more food and water being provided. "When you have to pull people down from their buildings - I'm sorry, but that really upsets me and frustrates me". "I am begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying", Cruz said. People remain desperate for supplies more than a week after the hurricane's landing.

Trump's public schedule Monday was devoid of any meetings related to the storm, but he was becoming frustrated by the coverage he was seeing on TV, the senior official said.

"Fake News CNN and NBC are going out of their way to disparage our great First Responders as a way to 'get Trump, '" POTUS tweeted less than an hour after shaming the people of Puerto Rico for not doing enough to fix everything themselves. An opinion article for the New York Times called it a "shakedown, a mob protection racket, with Puerto Rico a captive market".

Bianca Ocasio, breaking news reporter with the Orlando Sentinel, Andrea Marcial, reporter with Telemundo in Orlando, Maria Padilla, founder of OrlandoLatino.org, and Fernando Rivera, associate professor of Sociology at the University of Central Florida joined Intersection to talk about the recovery effort in Puerto Rico.

Amy Gordon is a freelance travel writer, she is a grad of UPenn's Wharton, and she worked in Philadelphia for several years until moving to Vieques, Puerto Rico. "Mayday! We are in trouble", Cruz said at a press conference Friday. "This is a people-are-dying story", she said.

But he added that more needs to be done: "If Congress doesn't take action with a significant package, then we are looking at a possible humanitarian crisis".

Miranda, who is of Puerto Rican descent, has family in the Vega Alta region of the island. Officials said Puerto Rico requested assistance from NC National Guard through an Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) request with NC Emergency Management to aid in recovery.

On the defensive over the pace of federal help for Puerto Rico, President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans cleared the way Thursday for more supplies and government cash for the hurricane-ravaged US island. "Things that will at least make them feel slightly better, or less worried or anxious", he said.
