Donald Trump stirs tempest before Puerto Rico visit

People in Puerto Rico continue to wait for help

"Damn it, this is not a good news story", Cruz told CNN.

The Hamilton creator did not stop there, following up with another tweet in which he defended the San Juan mayor: "She has been working 24/7".

She continued: "If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency and the bureaucracy".

"We have fuel trucks sitting out there in what we call a "quick reaction force" with Marines who are ready to go, map out which hospitals they have to go to and we will get there before the lights go out and people die", Lt. Col. Mainz said. They're sleeping on cots and eating the same food as everyone else after their house flooded.

The President stirred things up with a series of tweets Saturday from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he is spending the weekend.

Russian Federation might be trying to get involved in back-channel diplomacy between Pyongyang and Washington, the sources said. North Korea, for its part, says it needs to develop its weapons to defend itself against what it sees as USA aggression.

In his final tweet on the matter, Trump praised those working on the island to help those afflicted by the storm - with one conspicuous absence: Carmen Yulín Cruz, the mayor of San Juan with whom he clashed Saturday.

Cruz said she shared values with the Democratic Party but did not participate in the party and pointed out that Republican Sen. "We are dying", Cruz said she was hopeful the situation would improve.

Mr Trump is set to visit the island on Tuesday. The Department of Homeland Security has sent barges to deliver meals, water and other necessities to Puerto Rico.

On the same show, Long said island residents are "pulling their weight", contrary to Trump's accusation that Cruz and other Puerto Rican leaders "want everything to be done for them".

Lin-Manuel Miranda fired a heated salvo at Trump after his latest tweets about Puerto Rico. 10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job.

The presenter asked him: " Harvey , if someone says something frightful to you, what do you think?" to which he replied: "Hello". Ben was released without charge but remains under investigation. "I don't think they've got a hope in hell without him".

Cruz said two entire towns had been evacuated for the first time in her lifetime that she knew of and people were asking their mayors to help. "I am not going to be distracted by small comments, by politics, by petty issues".

Duke was speaking to reporters on the tarmac in San Juan before boarding a helicopter for an aerial look at the devastation.

Rossello publicly struck a conciliatory tone in remarks earlier in the day, saying the federal government fulfilled all his requests, though there's still plenty of humanitarian work to be done. That comes after he accused the San Juan mayor of poor leadership and being unable to get workers to help Puerto Rico recover.

Surrounded by water, you say?

The immediate response to Trump was of course not too kind; It is no secret that the US government is not doing enough to provide aid to Puerto Rico, which is putting hundreds of thousands of lives at risk.
