Under Fire, Trump Blames Puerto Ricans For Slow Hurricane Response

President Trump just attacked the mayor of San Juan Puerto Rico

But Trump and others have also paid special attention to Puerto Rico's debt in recent days, prompting concern that the fiscal oversight board to which Congress previous year delegated financial authority over the island would prioritize bondholders over Puerto Ricans' recovery needs. "No long lines for you", Manuel tweeted.

And he tweeted: "The military and first responders, despite no electric, roads, phones etc., have done an unbelievable job".

Comedian Rob Delaney, meanwhile, tweeted, "You literally sent this from a golf course you fat bigot".

The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, who has been busy criticizing President Donald Trump, had nothing but love for a terrorist who she said was "fighting the fight".

"We've never seen anything like this", he said, noting that Washington is sending 10,000 federal personnel, including 5,000 National Guard members. Most of Puerto Rico's 3.4 million residents are entering their 11th day without power, and 16 deaths have been reported so far. "Don't take my word for it, take a three-star general's word for it".

John Legend tweeted that Mr Trump "continues to dominate the s**ttiest president ever competition".

The leader of Puerto Rico's capital city says she knows "the good heart of the American people and I know that when a mayday sound goes off, they come to the rescue".

But Cruz tells ABC's "This Week" that "there's only one goal, and it's saving lives".

But Gutierrez had more pointed criticism for the President, suggesting he ought to deploy the military forces with which he has threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea to aid the distressed island. She's a member of the Popular Democratic Party, which supports Puerto Rico remaining a USA commonwealth as opposed to becoming a state, and has pushed for gender equality, LGBT rights and help for people with disabilities.

On Saturday morning, Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló provided an update on relief efforts, saying the number of gasoline stations now open has increased from 450 four days ago to 714.

Yulin Cruz was reacting to an earlier comment by acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke that the life-saving efforts of relief workers was a "good news story".

The agency is sending staff from its Aviation Department to help their counterparts at San Juan International Airport and other airfields resume full flight operations.

Dammit, this is not a good news story.
