San Juan Mayor Wears 'Nasty' Shirt in Trump Jab

"Mitchell then started talking about all the people who Trump praised, including White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Small Business Administrator Linda McMahon, as she noted the "political dynamic". So has ice. People, waiting in massive lines for hours are running out of food and water. "He was giving us the highest grades".

The official death toll from Hurricane Maria remains at 16 people.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois says President Donald Trump didn't visit mountainous interior regions where many sick and elderly people are trapped. "This is common courtesy", she said.

Later in the morning, however, Cruz announced that she would attend meetings with Trump and FEMA, after having been criticized for lack of engagement with relief efforts.

"How are you?" he asked.

Cruz made headlines last week when she slammed the federal government for its slow response to the storm and pleaded for help from anyone able to provide it. And as Trump tries to spin a different story, it's important that this incongruity is addressed. I wasn't saying anything about the president. You go to Timbuktu, you're in the middle of the desert, you sit down a solar panel or whatever, and there's communication.

"To save lives we need a robust and continuous supply chain of aid, we need to adapt standard opening procedures to local reality. It's breaking the barriers of class". Trump misstated Maria as a Category 5 hurricane; it was Category 4 when it hit Puerto Rico. You can be very proud of all of your people and all of our people working together. The world can see it. Our brothers and sisters from unions see it. Our brothers and sisters from New York, from California, from Miami Beach, from Boston, from Chicago see it. It's not only dangerous, it's expensive. "I think it's now acknowledged what a great job we've done".

Noting Delta's efforts to transport supplies and relief workers to Puerto Rico, Mark Ruffalo and A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay called "shame" on Trump. They were only amplified yesterday after President Trump's visit to the hurricane-ravaged island.

He tweeted from a golf course clubhouse some very nasty comments, saying Puerto Ricans want everything done for them that should be done by the community under her leadership.

The president apparently took issue with Cruz's remarks and responded by attacking her via his favorite social media platform.

Another major question on unity confronts Puerto Rico and its own government, NYT's Richard Fausset reports separately.

MAYOR CARMEN YULÍN CRUZ: From the American people, there's not a lack of will. They're here.

Hurricanes are deadly events and the United States has seen more than their fair share in the past month.

While early response efforts were hampered by logistical problems, officials say that conditions, especially in the capital, have improved. "We are with you and Puerto Rico". "It's about respect for the Puerto Rican people, and it's about saving lives".
