Trump dismisses 'ingrates' over Puerto Rico

"We are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency and the bureaucracy". "I can not fathom the thought that the greatest nation in the world can not figure out the logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles". Thank you to the Governor of P.R. and to all of those working so closely with our First Responders.

President Trump kept whipping up chaos Sunday over his handling of Puerto Rico's storm crisis, firing off more tweets attacking his rivals as criticism about his actions poured in from all sides.

A North Carolina congressman is criticizing President Donald Trump's Twitter comments about the mayor of Puerto Rico's largest city, San Juan, which has been devastated.

Most of the USA territory's 3.4 million residents remain without power and have struggled to find clean water and fuel 11 days after the hurricane.

In a series of tweets, Trump said that Puerto Rican officials showed "poor leadership ability" and "want everything to be done for them".

"Ultimately the government of Puerto Rico will have to work with us to determine how this massive rebuilding effort. will be funded and organized, and what we will do with the tremendous amount of existing debt already on the island", Trump said on Friday.

Pence said he learned that "while our joint field operation at the convention center in San Juan has more than 1,000 personnel working out in a football field environment, the Mayor of San Juan has only visited our joint field operation once".

Trump leans on GOP health bill holdouts
McCain was frustrated by Republicans hasty efforts to pass the bill without it going through what he called "regular order". I know Rand Paul and I think he may find a way to get there for the good of the Party! "This is a bad idea, not repealed".

The White House has said more than 10,000 federal workers have been sent to the US territory to aid the recovery.

The result of all this, according to Cruz, is that other mayors in Puerto Rico are afraid to say anything out of fear the Trump admin will lash out in some way.

Cruz, still seemingly stunned by Trump's rebukes, said all she had done "was ask for help".

Cruz lived on the USA mainland for more than a decade, attending school at Boston University and Carnegie Mellon University, before getting involved in politics in Puerto Rico.

"The problem that we have with the mayor unfortunately is that unity of command is ultimately what's needed to be successful in this response", Long said. However 95 percent of people in the US territory are still without power. Furthermore, it's still not clear how many Puerto Ricans, like those needing medical care, remain in danger, or even how many people have died as a result of the storm and its catastrophic aftermath.

"The goal is one: saving lives", she wrote on Twitter on Saturday.

"We're going to move them quickly to 11 points in Puerto Rico where mayors can go get food, water for their communities", Rossello said.
