San Juan mayor slams Trump official's Puerto Rico comment

San Juan mayor slams Trump official's Puerto Rico comment

CNN's Leyla Santiago was born on the island and she has been reporting from there since Hurricane Maria made landfall almost two weeks ago.

"There should be no distractions", she told Bloomberg.

"It's good we're doing things like this, but help needs to come from a higher level than just us", he said. The room had been without power for six days because its generator stopped running.

The frustrated officer said red tape was preventing people from getting the supplies they need. But given the scale of the disaster, she said, its help is not arriving quickly enough.

Trump is planning to visit Puerto Rico on Tuesday.

"If Congress doesn't take action with a significant package, then we are looking at a possible humanitarian crisis", he said.

Trump has fired back against those criticisms.

Kim Kardashian joined the chorus of people criticising Donald Trump for attacking the mayor of San Juan, slamming the President for "golfing while people in Puerto Rico are dying".

"Damn it, this is not a good news story", Cruz told CNN.

On Sunday, Trump doubled down.

Of course, there are areas of Puerto Rico which we haven't really gotten in contact.

The comments come after Mr. Trump tweeted Saturday about the "poor leadership" by local officials in Puerto Rico.

He added, "All buildings now inspected.for safety".

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello has called the destruction to the island unprecedented, though the Republican has praised the US government's relief efforts.

"She has been there once", he said. "He doesn't know of such inspections". Pence said he will be in Puerto Rico this time next week. While Trump has been slow to act or acknowledge the devastation, on Thursday he finally issued a temporary 10-day waiver that would overturn an outdated federal statue from 1920 that regulates commerce and shipping between USA ports. And pictures of the military removing debris and loading trucks with water have made the rounds on social media.

Asked why it took so long to get the general in place, Townsend said, "My understanding from the White House is, that three-star general has been in place literally from the beginning, but he was managing sort of his role from the mainland USA and I think the sort of adjustment here has been they're going to send him down there to understand better on the ground what the requirements are". "People have been told to register via internet for FEMA relief, when we don't have any internet or very little internet even in the San Juan metropolitan area".
