'SNL' hammers President Trump over Puerto Rico response

Puerto Rico governor More needed but feds have answered our calls

Cruz also said she appreciated the efforts of responders, including those from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, but felt they had not been given sufficient means to help those in the most dire need.

During his tweet attacks this morning, Trump called NBC and CNN "fake news" for reporting Cruz's cries for more aid.

President Donald Trump says his administration has "done a great job with the nearly impossible situation in Puerto Rico" after Hurricane Maria struck the island.

Amid mounting criticism, President Trump took to Twitter on Thursday night to defend the federal government's response to the disaster in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria devastated the island.

Rihanna joins a growing list of celebrities, including Lin-Manuel Miranda and Marc Anthony, who have criticized the president for his response to the crisis in Puerto Rico.

At the conference a year ago, members elected Diane James to succeed Farage, who stepped down after the Brexit referendum. A former soldier, Bolton is a one-time Lib Dem member who has worked as an European Union common defence strategist.

But residents of Puerto Rico and outside observers have taken the government to task for what they see as delayed or insufficient action after Maria, the strongest hurricane to hit the island in almost 90 years.

People wade into the San Lorenzo River after a bridge was swept away by Hurricane Maria in Morovis, Puerto Rico. That comes after he accused the San Juan mayor of poor leadership and being unable to get workers to help Puerto Rico recover.

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

"You have been GOLFING", he tweeted at Trump.

President Donald Trump lashed out at the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, on social media early Saturday, criticizing her for "poor leadership ability" in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. The latter recently made several public pleas for help while lambasting the federal government's slow response on Friday, thereby sending the vacationing president into a golf-fueled Twitter frenzy Saturday morning.

Meanwhile water and food rations are improving, and telecommunications have been restored to about 30 per cent of the island. Will hopefully be able to stop at the U.S.

His administration doubled down on Trump's tweets Saturday, with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defending the president's complaints that he is being treated unfairly by the media.

"I don't know what world Trump is living in", he said.

Rosselló, a Democrat, contradicted Cruz Saturday, saying the Trump administration has given the USA territory "whatever we ask for" in the storm's aftermath.

"I will be going to Puerto Rico on Tuesday with Melania".

He further said that the results of recovery efforts would speak much louder than complaints by San Juan Mayor.

In addition, Politico reported that Ivanka Trump and four other Trump aides used their personal email for official business, including economic adviser Gary Cohn.

That leaves tens of thousands of people without access to necessities, most urgently water, long after the September 20 hurricane.
