San Juan Mayor Wears 'Nasty' T-Shirt In TV Interview

San Juan Mayor Wears 'Nasty' T-Shirt In TV Interview”

But Cruz didn't need the blow-horn she carried in her wading waist-high into the floodwaters to get the word out this time, nor a dramatic T-shirt for a CNN interview, because she had MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell to spread the word.

Trump called Katrina "a real catastrophe" given its "hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people that died".

Only 7% of the island has power and more remote parts of the island - a USA territory - have been without food, water and basic medical aid.

Amid widespread power outages, hospitals have been stretched to their limits.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz wore a "Nasty" T-shirt on national television Wednesday afternoon, making her claim that the nation's insistence on disaster relief efforts are "not about politics" all the more hard to believe. "It just goes to prove the lack of sensibility", Cruz said. Her response could not be heard.

Donald Trump is unfit to be the President of our beloved United States.

At least parts of the itinerary were drawn to ensure a friendly reception: Trump was visiting the houses of pre-selected families waiting on their lawns.

On his first visit to survey damage from Hurricane Maria, the president lobbed at least five rolls into a crowd gathered at Calvary Chapel. How can he can say this when these people have no electricity, no water, little food or medicine, washed out roads, and are just trying to survive this disaster as best they can? This only highlighted the fact that ships have been delivering cargo containers of rations and relief into the San Juan harbor, but local officials have not been able to distribute the goods to the people who need them.

But another wanted to take the focus away from Trump and return it to the American citizens in Puerto Rico, who are doing everything they can to rebuild their communities.

On approach to the airport, Air Force One descended over a landscape marked by mangled palm trees, metal debris strewn near homes and patches of stripped trees, yet with less devastation evident than farther from San Juan.

Trump praised the roughly 200 people gathered there, saying there was a lot of "love" in the room.

Fortunately, the U.S.is also helping in other ways.

As Puerto Rico's hurricane recovery process has gone on, Cruz and Trump have had a constant back and forth battle, as the two sides continue to publicly insult each other. But she had some criticism for Trump, who held a press conference when he arrived on the island. "We truly are dying here".

Like a stink bug coming in from the rain, San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz has come crawling back into the limelight. In a pair of tweets, Cruz made sure to praise the White House staff for their hard work. The New York Times's Paul Krugman, who tweeted the false report, admitted his mistake, but not before thousands of people had retweeted it.

It was originally unclear if Trump and Cruz would meet, but on Tuesday morning Cruz announced that she had been invited to the briefing and had accepted.

Open channels of communication are always good to have, but they must produce much needed results.

To his credit, Mr. Trump has not taken Politics 101.

Trump and his wife also visited Navy and Marine Corps personnel on the flight deck of the USS Kearsarge.

"Great" is how President Donald Trump described the federal response on Twitter (of course). When Stephanopoulos asked her if she had visited a FEMA joint field office to coordinate relief efforts, Cruz admitted that she had not, but in one case, she sent a member of her administration.

The president's trip comes amid some criticism over the federal government's response to the island twice hit by a hurricane in the past month.

For many, however, Washington's response isn't enough.
