'This is not a good news story'

'This is not a good news story'

"Well, maybe from where she's standing it's a good news story", Cruz said after seeing a clip of Duke's remarks. "This is a people-are-dying story".

"If we cut some American jobs, replace them with foreign labor and save a few pennies on the delivered goods, then perhaps you could get the answer swayed to yes, but no one has ever made a factual case that this is true", Crowley said in an interview. U.S. President Donald Trump on September 28 waived the Jones Act, which officials had said was making relief efforts hard.

"This is what they do", Rubio said Thursday. "It's been wiped out". Trump said in an early morning Tweet. But officials at the Department of Homeland Security, which administers FEMA, say moving goods around the island is the bigger challenge. "Puerto Rico was totally destroyed".

One story is being framed in Washington; one in San Juan.

"You can't see the roads", said Alvaro Trueba, a regional catastrophe coordinator for property insurer Chubb Ltd, who told Reuters that adjusters face difficulties driving about the island.

Rubio, who has emerged in recent months as a key adviser to the president on Latin American issues, said the Defense Department is the only institution with the organizational capabilities and logistics skills needed to confront the devastation.

Trump weighed in on his way to New Jersey for the weekend. "10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job".

Yet even in voicing optimism and sympathy, Trump drew attention again to Puerto Rico's pre-hurricane debt burden and infrastructure woes, leaving doubt how far Washington will go to make the US territory whole.

Baker said Friday that MA is home to one of the largest communities of Puerto Rican Americans in the country. "We will not rest, however, until the people of Puerto Rico are safe".

Walsh and Baker announced the establishment of the Massachusetts United for Puerto Rico Fund during a Friday event.

Economists agree. In 2015, Anne Krueger, former chief economist of the World Bank, wrote that the Jones Act "requires using very costly US-built ships and crews for all sea transport to and from the mainland". Honoré, who is credited with cleaning up the mess of a response to Hurricane Katrina, thinks President Trump is celebrating prematurely.

Jennifer Lopez Finds Missing Family Members in Puerto Rico After Hurricane
Gutierrez and Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló, have voiced demand for equal treatment in federal relief aid. Jennifer Lopez has located all of the missing members of her family in Puerto Rico after six long days.

The Trump administration, including President Trump himself, has criticized the media for not showing the federal recovery effort in Puerto Rico in a good enough light.

"It's a tough situation", Trump said.

At a news conference on Friday, Cruz said, "I am done being polite".

In the town of San Lorenzo, about 40 miles west of the capital, people walked through calf-high water to get supplies because the bridge over the Manati river outside town was washed away in the storm.

"We are maximising all of the resources that we have so that we can deliver goods, water food and supplies", he said.

"Just like God helps us, we help each other", said resident Noemi Santiago, weeping.

Democratic US Senator Richard Blumenthal of CT said the crisis was shifting from a natural disaster to a man-made one.

People fill containers with water from a tank truck at an area hit by Hurricane Maria in Canovanas, Puerto Rico, Sept 26, 2017. "Clearly the situation here in Puerto Rico after the devastating hurricane is not satisfactory, but together we are getting there".

Bossert said later Thursday that the "business model" for recover efforts had changed and that FEMA is working directly with the localities as well as state government.

Trump is expected to survey the damage Tuesday.
