Copy-Trump blames San Juan mayor, Democrats over Puerto Rico response

Copy-Trump blames San Juan mayor, Democrats over Puerto Rico response

"We have done a great job with the nearly impossible situation in Puerto Rico", he wrote. "We can not be distracted by anything else".

Charles W. Cooke, an editor for conservative journal The National Review, said that while Trump didn't deserve the early critiques of his response, his posts on Saturday had changed Cooke's opinion.

Almost all of Puerto Rico has been left without power and running water after Maria ravaged the island, leaving at least 16 people dead.

I recommend that today and tomorrow we use the general theme of supporting the governor and standing with the people of Puerto Rico to get them food, water, shelter and emergency medical care.

Cruz told CNN that she was not in fact a Democrat - she is a member of the island's centrist Popular Democratic Party - and that by bringing politics into the matter "I just think he is looking for an excuse for things that are not going well". "Quiet down your Twitter and open your heart to the people of Puerto Rico", Gutierrez (pictured below) stated.

"I am begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying", Carmen Yulin Cruz, San Juan's mayor, said Friday morning.

The leader of Puerto Rico's capital city says she knows "the good heart of the American people and I know that when a mayday sound goes off, they come to the rescue". The major has accused his administration of "killing us with the inefficiency".

Trump added that due to incompetence, the USA had to send 10,000 federal workers to the devastated region.

"Mr. Trump, I beg you to take charge and save lives", she said.

Worldwide flight delays caused by glitchy check-in system
Facing chaos and delays, many passengers took to social media to complain and tweeted pictures of the long lines at airports. The problems were traced back to one software vendor, Amadeus, and its Amadeus Altea check-in software.

"Damn it, this is not a good news story", Cruz told CNN.

But according to the president, Cruz need look no further than herself for the problems.

"In response to Trump's tweets branding criticism of the federal government's Puerto Rico relief efforts "#fakenews", the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who has 55 million Twitter followers versus the president's 39.7 million, offered up a dose of reality. "This is a life or death story", she added.

"Let us not talk about the debt", Yulín Cruz said, referring Puerto Rico's crippling debt load.

Puerto Rico's governor says efforts to restore cell service, gas and other basic needs to the island's rural residents are progressing, even as many in those towns report feeling forgotten.

Administration officials have followed Trump's push for optimistic messaging.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello has called the destruction to the island unprecedented, though the Republican has praised the US government's relief efforts.

Meanwhile, it didn't take my colleague AJ Vicens long to find a town in Puerto Rico entirely cut off from the help Bossert asserts is making such a difference on the island.
