President Trump doesn't let up on criticism of San Juan mayor

President Trump doesn't let up on criticism of San Juan mayor”

Trump on Saturday criticized Cruz's "poor leadership ability" and accused some of Puerto Rico of wanting "everything to be done for them".

On Saturday, the commander in chief sent a whopping 18 tweets about Puerto Rico but his defensive and angry day-long screed was apparently not enough to get his feelings across so he was at it again Sunday morning, blasting critics and praising his own administration. While President Trump touted the government's effort Friday, San Juan mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz blasted the lack of progress. When asked, Mayor Cruz says she has no problem meeting with the President when he arrives.

"The military and first responders, despite no electric, roads, phones etc., have done an unbelievable job", he wrote.

A few hours after posting her message to Trump, Rihanna called for a "round of applause" for efforts to aid Puerto Rico from former presidents George H.W. Bush, Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter. This summer, in an interview with Harper's Bazaar Arabia, Kardashian said "anyone can run the USA better".

"Maybe from where she's standing it's a good news story". On that front, she ran into winds as fierce as Maria. And you are killing us with the inefficiency.

"We are dying here". By now, telecommunications are back for about 30 percent of the island, almost half of the supermarkets have reopened at least for reduced hours and about 60 percent of the gas stations are pumping. But many remain desperate for water and other necessities.

Trump previously made headlines when he described the logistical difficulties of helping Puerto Rico by saying it was "an island, surrounded by water, big water, ocean water".

"Fema has been working extra hard on this effort", he said, noting that the number of open gas stations had gone in four days from 450 to 714. "It's been wiped out". Trump said he was not aware of Duke's "good-news" remark. "I can tell you this: We have done an incredible job considering there's absolutely nothing to work with".

"Puerto Ricans, that's 3.5 million American citizens, just like Texas, just like Florida", Miranda said Friday.

Criticised for focusing more on protests by professional football players than on the disaster in the Caribbean, the White House said the president spoke late yesterday by phone with Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello, former governor Luis Fortuno, and Jennifer Gonzalez-Colon, who represents the island in Congress but has no voting power.

"We have done a great job with the nearly impossible situation in Puerto Rico".

Cruz went on to compliment workers from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and homeland security adviser Tom Bossert for their work in recent days to restore power to parts of the island.

Maria made landfall as a major Category 4 hurricane in Puerto Rico on September 20, killing at least 16 people, knocking out power, decimating infrastructure and drowning the island's agriculture.

Trump, who was spending the weekend at his private golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, said Cruz was attacking him for partisan reasons. "I will continue to do whatever I need to do, say whatever I need to say, compliment the people I need to compliment, and call out the people that I need to call out", she added.
