Trump says homeland chief 'working very hard'

8 numbers that show how Maria has laid waste to Puerto Rico

In a late afternoon Twitter blast about the government hurricane response effort, Trump said "to the people of Puerto Rico: Do not believe the #FakeNews!"

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz reacted with shock and anger to acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke on Friday, saying Puerto Rico's recovery is "not a good news story".

"President Trump pledged his administration's continued commitment to provide an unprecedented federal response in helping the people of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands".

Saturday morning President Donald Trump accused the mayor of Puerto Rico of "poor leadership" one day after her plea for more help.

Trump later complained that "my people are not getting the credit they deserve for doing a great job" in the disaster relief effort in Puerto Rico, and urged citizens not to believe the "FAKE NEWS" that the USA has not done enough for the crisis in its own territory. Trump added, prompting Kim Kardashian to reply.

Trump also says the mayor was "very complimentary only a few days ago", but "has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump".

Manchester United could lose badly to Crystal Palace today
Manchester United could be without several key players for their clash Crystal Palace on Saturday, Jose Mourinho has revealed. Christian Benteke has been ruled out for a six-week period with a knee injury, but he is not the only one who will be out.

Almost all of Puerto Rico's 3.4 million residents are without power, and many without cell service, food, or water.

"Wouldn't it be more logical in terms of logistical support to get 21 pallets of water and 21 pallets of food, whatever you're going to give me, give me for a week's worth?" she said. A number of correspondents are on the ground in Puerto Rico - including Anderson Cooper and Bill Weir - documenting the situation firsthand.

Authorities said in a conference call that power has been restored to only 5 per cent of the island; telecommunications to 33 per cent; and water to half of the island. "That's all that matters", she said.

"I'm not a hero here", said CBS News' David Begnaud, who has been in Puerto Rico since before Maria hit on September 20. She also said her complaints had resulted in more food and water being provided.

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.

As NPR's Greg Allen and Marisa Penaloza have reported, many hospitals are still shut down.

Yulín Cruz maintained the focus should be foremost on saving the people of Puerto Rico.

With thousands of cargo containers filled with necessary supplies that have arrived at a port in San Juan not yet distributed, Rossello told reporters Saturday that his government will purchase some of the crates to make sure they get to those in need across Puerto Rico.

"FakeNews critics are working overtime, but we're getting great marks from the people that truly matter!" he tweeted.

The creator of Broadway hit "Hamilton", Lin-Manuel Miranda, whose parents moved to NY from Puerto Rico, took Trump to task on Twitter over his attack on Cruz: "She has been working 24/7".

That default divisiveness makes Trump different than every person who has held the office before him.

He says Trump "is politicizing the devastation and criticizing a Mayor who has worked overtime to provide love, comfort and hope to her neighbors, and images of her tireless and selfless efforts are now iconic".

Saudi Arabia Announces It Will Lift Ban And Allow Women To Drive
The move may signal that the ultraconservative kingdom wants to improve its image. Previously, women in the Gulf nation could be arrested for driving.

Most of the USA territory's 3.4 million residents remain without power and have struggled to find clean water and fuel 11 days after the hurricane.
