'Big decisions' needed on rebuilding Puerto Rico, says Donald Trump

'Big decisions' needed on rebuilding Puerto Rico, says Donald Trump”

As most of the island's 3.4 million residents faced a 10th day without power and struggled to find clean water and fuel, Cruz bristled at Duke's comment.

But Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of San Juan, heatedly denied that.

"When you have to pull people down from buildings - I'm sorry, that really upsets me and frustrates me".

"Let me clarify", she said Friday, explaining that she meant "it was good news that people of Puerto Rico and many public servants of the United States are working together". "It's a life or death story".

"We want to get goods to people as quickly and efficiently as possible, and to do that we need our customers to work with their truckers to take delivery of their cargo", said Jose "Pache" Ayala, vice president of Crowley Maritime Puerto Rico services.

"If a hundred families came in with two or three children each, you're looking at 200 or 300 people looking to integrate in our schools", says Mayor Joe Ganim. "Scraping for food. Where is the good news?" she concluded.

On Thursday, Duke expressed nothing short of full confidence when she talked to reporters about Puerto Rico outside the White House. "This is a "people are dying" story' This is a life-or-death story".

"Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello just stated: "The Administration and the President, every time we've spoken, they've delivered.", Trump tweeted early on Friday".

Maria, the most powerful storm to hit Puerto Rico in almost 90 years, has killed at least 16 people on the island and more than 30 across the Caribbean.

Trump showing up on Tuesday and making a show of handing out a few hot dogs while hawking some US hats that are for sale on his website is not a solution. "Big decisions will have to be made as to the cost of its rebuilding!"
