Trump discrediting himself with Puerto Rico relief efforts

Trump discrediting himself with Puerto Rico relief efforts

Mr. Trump temporarily waived the Jones Act earlier this week to ease the delivery of aid by sea to Puerto Rico.

Asencio, a Democrat, joined Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine on a visit this week to Puerto Rico's capital, San Juan.

The island's 3.5 million Americans are still reeling after two powerful hurricanes in two weeks decimated the Caribbean island's power grid, flooded entire communities and left scores of residents without access to food or drinkable water.

Cruz, who has personally assisted rescue missions, had responded on Saturday that the focus should be on saving lives.

"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", the President tweeted from his golf retreat in Bedminster, New Jersey, complaining that Puerto Rico officials "want everything to be done for them". Asked about Trump's suggestion that Puerto Ricans were not doing enough to help themselves, Long said, "I believe in the Puerto Ricans".

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. "We don't know if they're alive or not", Espada said, an event coordinator. Trump said his administration "will not rest" until people there are safe. But the agency says it can not now accept repayments, so those who need to complete urgent travel before repaying the loan have to contact the government to petition for a replacement passport.

"I recognize the good heart that the FEMA people have, and they want to help", she said.

Trump blasts media coverage of Puerto Rico
Almost all of Puerto Rico's 3.4 million residents are without power, and many without cell service, food, or water. He described the mayor as one of the leaders in the USA territory who "want everything to be done for them ".

"When I see all this going bigger and bigger I'm really happy because all my friends around here in Erie you know they are different races".

"The people who are the best in this are the USA military.

All buildings now inspected for safety", wrote Trump, who will head to Puerto Rico on Tuesday to survey hurricane damage.

"Results of recovery efforts will speak much louder than complaints by San Juan Mayor".
