Donald Trump: I will go to Puerto Rico next Tuesday”

President Trump spoke out on Tuesday about his plans for American assistance in Puerto Rico, one week after Hurricane Maria brought the island to a standstill. Instead, on Twitter he blamed the island for its problems, as if residents allowed a Category 4 hurricane to ravage their homes to spite him. Trump said Monday he will visit Puerto Rico, which he described as "literally destroyed", next week. Six days after Hurricane Maria hit, millions are struggling for basic necessities like adequate food, water, fuel and electricity. No way to communicate with others?

They're planning to visit Puerto Rico as soon as they can get a flight to help distribute the supplies they've collected to make sure they get where they need to go.

"I hurt for my people and my island".

US troops are on the ground. The first three flights all carried volunteers and more than 13,000 pounds of supplies including cots, tarps, generators, food and water.

"We're in constant contact with the relief efforts that the city has set up, and the region has set up", he said. "Otherwise, there will be ... a massive exodus to the [mainland] United States".

The White House earlier denied it had been slower to act following Hurricane Maria in overwhelmingly Hispanic Puerto Rico than in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey on the U.S. mainland.

Gov. Ricardo Rossello did not mince words describing the damage in an interview with CNN.

Those that continue to reach out to loved ones in Puerto Rico get a dial tone over the phone. "People are hurting a lot". Inexplicably, the Trump administration also has declined to waive restrictions on foreign ships' transporting cargo to Puerto Rico, though it did waive such restrictions for Texas and Florida.

"I can't guarantee that this will get to my family directly, but I hope they help someone in that same situation that is looking for that support", Serbones said.
