San Juan Mayor Responds to Donald Trump's Twitter Attack

Land destroyed by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico

He also wrote that "poor leadership" by Cruz and others in Puerto Rico was the reason they "are not able to get their workers to help".

Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez on Friday broke down in tears while describing the dire situation in Puerto Rico and sharply criticized President Donald Trump for his administration's response so far to the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. You're going straight to hell.

There are long lines at the few banks that are open and most money machines are not operational. "Someone will say, 'Right this way, sir.' They'll clear a path".

For some Puerto Ricans, comments by Trump about the island's protracted financial crisis, and the amount of attention he has given to other, less pressing, issues while Puerto Rico suffers, just compounds the misery. The major has accused his administration of "killing us with the inefficiency".

Earlier he tweeted: "The fact is that Puerto Rico has been destroyed by two hurricanes".

Honore told National Public Radio that because of its distance from the mainland and the loss of its power grid, Puerto Rico "is a bigger and tougher mission than Katrina". This is not normal politics.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Thursday that 10,000 federal government relief workers were now in Puerto Rico, including 7,200 troops, and that 44 of the island's 69 hospitals were now fully operational.

"It's a life or death story", Cruz told CNN.

He lauded the relief effort on Friday and said it has been complicated by the fact that the U.S. territory is an island. Trump took to Twitter early on Saturday to fire back at the mayor of San Juan, the island's largest city.

RIO GRANDE, PUERTO RICO - SEPTEMBER 27, 2017: Heydee Perez, age 29, and her son, Yenel Calera, age 4 have not received any aid one week after Hurricane Maria.

Perez said she has family on the island-and "they're alive, but they're very, very heartbroken and struggling because they need supplies".

In the wake of the growing crisis, Trump has been criticized for what some are calling his lackluster response to the hurricane-ravaged USA property.

Rihanna on Thursday shared an image with the president of the New York Daily News's September 27 front page which read, "No food, no water, no power, no medical care for the dying ..."

Cruz became involved in Puerto Rico's Popular Democratic Party in 2003, and was elected president of its women's organization. Conditions are not favorable for development into a tropical storm, but locally heavy rainfall is expected over the Leeward Islands, including Dominica, and the U.S.

Twitter was afire last night with retweets of Cruz's pleas for help and her claim that this "not a good news story"-a rebuttal to what Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke had said about the USA government's response to Puerto Rico". The island has been in recession for 11 years and has lost 10% of its population in that time. Only 11 of the island's 69 hospitals have power or fuel supply and nearly half of the population is without potable water, according to a FEMA briefing issued Tuesday morning.

"I will continue to do whatever I have to do, say whatever I have to say, compliment the people I need to compliment, and call out the people I need to call out", said Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz.
