TV News Has Sunday Funday Pummeling Trump Over Puerto Rico

RACINE- A Racine woman who wanted to lay her mother's ashes in Puerto Rico gets caught in Hurricane Maria

To Trump's mind, leaders in Puerto Rico "are not able to get their workers to help".

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — In Puerto Rico's hurricane-ravaged capital, it seems Carmen Yulin Cruz is everywhere these days: handing out bags of ice, wading through chest-deep floodwaters, hugging people in need of comfort.

FEMA said Sunday it has expanded its delivery of food and water throughout Puerto Rico, though officials stressed that many people still lack the essentials. The hurricanes crippled the island's already weakened waste and water treatment plants while fallen trees and strewn debris block roads and cellphone service remains limited.

He played down criticism of his administration's response to the hurricane by stating that "the military and first responders. have done an fantastic job".

"I want everybody to understand, you're listening to me".

SNL Weekend Update anchor Michael Che had harsh words about the president's Twitter attacks on San Juan's mayor, who the president said "was very complimentary only a few days ago" and 'has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump'. "They are working so hard, but there's nothing left", he said.

Guaynabo's mayor, Angel Perez, said in an interview with The Daily Caller that his experience with the federal government has been different from Cruz's, in part because - unlike Cruz - he has been participating in meetings with officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other federal agencies.

"We're literally starting from scratch", Trump said Friday in a speech to the National Association of Manufacturers.

When Trump presented the trophy to Team U.S.A., he dedicated it to the people of Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida still recovering from hurricane devastation.

"Imagine what I'll do when I'm the mayor of San Juan", she told reporters in August 2012, three months before the vote.

In another tweet, he blamed "Fake News CNN and NBC" for going out of their way "to disparage our great First responders".

Later in the day, Trump tempered his tweeted barbs.

The president opened his speech on tax reform with his comments on the federal government's relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

Appearing on television in a black shirt with white letters that read, "HELP US, WE ARE DYING", Cruz argued that federal aid had been slow to reach Puerto Rico following Maria, which knocked out power to the entire island.

There are 1,113 public schools and a student population of 350,000 on the island but only 400 schools have been assessed for damage, she said.

"Let's just talk about saving lives right now", Cruz told Stephanopoulos.

Julia Kelleher, Puerto Rico's secretary of education, told CNN on Sunday that some public schools might not resume classes until October 16 because of storm damage, though decisions will be made on a regional basis. "You just did this for white people twice".

Earlier he tweeted: "The fact is that Puerto Rico has been destroyed by two hurricanes. And you are killing us with the inefficiency and the bureaucracy".

Mia Farrow tweeted, "The President is attacking people who are without drinkable water, food, power Trump is unfit to lead". "The visiting of some senators and some representatives now coming to Puerto Rico also and now the president, I think that's the best thing to give hope to our people". Maria was not thought to be a huge hurricane like Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, but over the tiny US territory of Puerto Rico, she has caused more damage that will take time to fix.
