As Puerto Rico awaits Hurricane Maria relief, Donald Trump takes to Twitter

President Trump just attacked the mayor of San Juan Puerto Rico

Trump's criticism comes on the heels of criticism of Trump's effort to get supplies, electricity and other relief to the U.S. Island after the hurricane devastation. "No long lines for you", Manuel tweeted.

Jeff Saunders, director of the task force, says that some members who had helped in Hurricane Harvey relief efforts were deployed to Puerto Rico to assist in Hurricane Irma relief and were there before Maria reached the island.

"The command has to come from Washington, D.C., from the commander-in-chief, and I would hope that as he likes to talk about the fire and the fury of the armed forces of the United States, that he bring them to Puerto Rico", said the congressman. "We have done an incredible job, considering there's absolutely nothing to work with", Trump said, adding that "the power grid is gone".

The White House said Trump will make calls to several Puerto Rico officials, including Gov. Ricardo Rosselló, on Saturday afternoon.

Asked why it took so long to get the general in place, Townsend said, "My understanding from the White House is, that three-star general has been in place literally from the beginning, but he was managing sort of his role from the mainland USA and I think the sort of adjustment here has been they're going to send him down there to understand better on the ground what the requirements are". So far, FEMA has distributed more than 1.3 million meals.




'General Buchanan, a three-star general, has said as one of the first comments that he has made about the Puerto Rico situation, that he doesn't have enough troops and he doesn't have enough equipment of what he needs to get the situation under control'.

For the students gathered Saturday, the disaster is personal - all of them have family in Puerto Rico. I'm not surprised by the show she is putting on'.

"Well, maybe from where she's standing it's a good news story", Cruz said after seeing a clip of Duke's remarks. The president also frequently points out that Puerto Rico is an island, which complicates recovery efforts.

Trump has repeatedly touted the response effort, suggesting that Puerto Rico's poor infrastructure and "massive debt" is to blame for the U.S. territory's ongoing crisis.

The president of the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority, Elí Díaz Atienza, gave a breakdown of the water service restoration effort to San Juan radio station WIPR, saying water is running to about 55% of the city. "When you are drinking from a creek, it's not a good news story".
