Trump bashes mayor of San Juan for 'poor leadership ability'

Trump says 'big decisions' to be made on rebuilding costs for Puerto Rico

"10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job".

"We will not rest, however, until the people of Puerto Rico are safe". "I'll be talking with the Democrats and we'll be talking to Congress about what we're going to do a little bit longer term".

"Outside fake news or politically motivated ingrates. people are now starting to recognize the incredible work that has been done by FEMA and our great military", he tweeted. "As was said after Hurricane Andrew: 'Where the hell is the cavalry?'" he said in a statement. He said all appropriate agencies of the government "are fully engaged in the disaster and the response and recovery effort".

And three-star Army Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan, commander of the United States Army North, was chosen to direct the military's response and will arrive later Thursday evening.

Residents have not received basic necessities such as food, water and medicine.

Appearing in a later interview wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the words: "Help us". "Let's not talk about jurisdiction, head-on collisions, let's talk about how we can make sure that people get stuff fast and easy". Gutierrez said he wants to know why the relief isn't flowing quickly enough to Puerto Rico.

The acting US homeland security secretary is headed to Puerto Rico to see the devastation and meet local officials.

The Federal Aviation Administration supported the restoration of services to all eight commercial airports in Puerto Rico, FEMA said on Friday. "It's been really slow". "People are suffering outside". If it means blaming Puerto Rico's debt and infrastructure issues even as people are desperately searching for their loved ones, well, that's just how it goes. Large numbers of generators are now on Island. President Donald Trump on Thursday authorized a 10-day waiver of the Jones Act, a federal law that limits shipping to U.S. ports by foreign vessels. Rivera said he began distributing it to hard-hit rural areas. "So I am asking the members of the press, to send a mayday call all over the world".

But he points out that Elaine Duke is temporarily in the job, "and she's working very hard". "He didn't say those comments for the people of Florida or Texas and we are as American as those people".

Trump may succeed in getting his base to fight back against the narrative that the Puerto Rico recovery isn't going well. There were conflicting figures: A day earlier, FEMA said it had distributed 167,000 meals and 539,000 bottles of water.

Ground Reports: Because power and communication lines still remain out for much of the island, hospitals rely on diesel fuel - already in short supply - and have trouble contacting and coordinating patient care.

"This is an island surrounded by water, big water, ocean water". Ryan noted that Trump had waived a matching funds requirement, which means the cash-strapped island won't have to contribute to the initial costs of the federal assistance.

"This is a message for President Trump: Thank you for calling San Juan yesterday and listening for our mayday call". That order included Puerto Rico but expired last week, shortly after Maria struck.
