Trump says Puerto Rico has thrown the budget 'out of whack'

Thirty-four people have died in Puerto Rico since the storm struck weeks ago, with Gov. Ricardo Rossello saying the hurricane caused $90 billion in damage across the island.

Donald Trump has told the people of Hurricane Maria-hit Puerto Rico that the death toll on their island could not be compared with Hurricane Katrina. "He's sort of like a 'miscommunicator in chief, '" Cruz said. "But the other thing that's also true is that the administration has answered and has complied with our petitions in an expedited manner". Almost all private homes and businesses are still without power and nearly half the island lacked access to water and sewage treatment.

Surrounded by a sea of cellphone cameras, Mr. Trump said, "There's a lot of love in this room".

However in a press conference, Trump seemed more interested in how the disaster has affected the US budget.

"You know, all I can say is Rex Tillerson, his own Secretary of State called him a moron", said Behar, citing an NBC report both Tillerson and Trump deny. Cruz argued that federal aid had been slow to reach Puerto Rico following Maria, which knocked out power to the entire island.

Cruz told Ramos she wore the shirt because "it was one of the expressions that the president used to describe me".

"Nasty woman" has become somewhat of a battle cry for women who oppose Trump, 71, ever since he used the term to describe Democratic rival Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.

"That's one of the expressions he used". However, due to the devastation, particularly in the rural communities in the center of the island, most of the much needed resources are not reaching the rest of the island. There was no exchange with anybody, none of the mayors and in fact, this terrible and abominable view of him throwing paper towels and throwing provisions at people. Because Puerto Rico is an unincorporated territory of the United States, FEMA has flood maps for the entire country.

Trump was already on a ego trip after the victims were thankful for the paper towels and batteries.

"That's like a fireman rescuing you out of a burning building then saying, 'You do understand what our water bill is going to be now, right?"
