Pence defends Puerto Rico response

Pence defends Puerto Rico response”

Richard PenceNew GOP ObamaCare repeal bill gains momentum Pence hires Freedom Caucus adviser for press secretary Lawmakers, pick up the ball on health care and reform Medicaid MORE defended the federal government's response to hurricane damage in Puerto Rico on Saturday, saying that response teams are making "real progress".

After deleting his initial tweet fusillade, Mr Trump returned to the subject by again criticising Ms Cruz and deriding "fake news". Trump added, prompting Kim Kardashian to reply.

Many Twitter users juxtaposed Mr Trump's location with an image of Ms Cruz wading through deep water. Mr Manuel-Miranda, who has family in Puerto Rico, said Mr Trump was going "straight to hell".

Battered in quick succession by hurricanes Irma and Maria, Puerto Rico is largely without electricity and faces shortages of food, water and medicine.

"The tweets this morning are despicable, are deplorable, are not statesman-like at all".

Numerous others have been scathing in their criticism, pointing out that the "workers" Trump addressed are US citizens who are struggling to rebuild after a crisis with limited food, water and electricity supplies.

Trump is scheduled to visit Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands on Tuesday - and Pence will also tour the islands next week.

In the meantime, he he has gone back to the important task of ordering NFL players to "STAND" during the national anthem.
