Who is San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto?

NC soldiers, engineers deploy to Puerto Rico for hurricane relief

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!"

President Donald Trump on Saturday lashed out at the mayor of San Juan and other officials in storm-ravaged Puerto Rico, contemptuous of their claims of a laggard USA response to the natural disaster that has imperiled the island's future.

Cruz was referencing Duke's comments on Thursday, when the Trump administration official said she was satisfied with the government's response to help Puerto Rico's recover from Hurricane Maria.

"As American citizens drink from streams and stand in lines for ice, gas and food, President Trump says they 'want everything to be done for them.' Lin-Manuel Miranda's response?" the front page reads.

Mr Trump, who will visit the island on Tuesday, added that Puerto Rico "was totally destroyed" and "10,000 Federal workers now on the island are doing a fantastic job".

He says the hurricane "totally destroyed" Puerto Rico and that "the military and first responders, despite no electric, roads, phones etc., have done an awesome job".

Since Hurricane Maria slammed into the United States territory as a Category 4 hurricane earlier this month, much of the island has been devastated - leaving millions of Americans without electricity and water, and limited access to gas and other vital supplies.


He also singled out Cruz for being "nasty" to him, because that's definitely the kind of concern that a grown-ass adult in his position should be raising at this time.

"If we don't get the food and the water into people's hands, we are going to see something close to a genocide", she added. A number of correspondents are on the ground in Puerto Rico - including Anderson Cooper and Bill Weir - documenting the situation firsthand. Meanwhile, the Federal Communications Commission said 90 percent of cell towers in the island were out of service, meaning residents couldn't connect with their loved ones and made it more hard for first responders. "My understanding is that as of yesterday, she had not even been to the FEMA operation center in her own city", Mulvaney said on CNN.

Trump spent the next eight (!) hours tweeting a series of attacks against the so-called "fake news" media for allegedly misrepresenting the actions of his administration in Puerto Rico. In a briefing Saturday he pointed to efforts by Fema (the Federal Emergency Management Agency) to deliver fuel across the island, particularly to hospitals. Trump, from his golf club in New Jersey, took to Twitter to accuse Cruz of partisan politics.

"Dammit, this is not a good news story", Cruz responded with shock and anger. And you are killing us with the inefficiency and bureaucracy. "For the last two days, we've been very involved in figuring out how we can get major amounts of cash to Puerto Rico".

Mr. Trump's weekend tweets have shown him to be contemptuous of any complaints of a laggard USA response to the natural disaster that has imperiled the island's future.

FEMA said Saturday that more than 60 percent of Puerto Rico's gas stations were in service, and that as of Thursday almost half of grocery stores were operating.

The devastation is likely to lead more people to leave, and as the population decreases, so does the tax base, economists said.
