Trump Attacks San Juan Mayor Who Criticized Hurricane Response

Trump Attacks San Juan Mayor Who Criticized Hurricane Response

The row between Trump and Cruz started Friday when Cruz criticized the president's effort to get supplies, electricity and other relief to the US island and suggest residents were "dying" as a result.

On Friday, Carmen Yulin Cruz told a news conference she was "done being politically correct" because her people were dying in the aftermath of Maria, the most powerful storm to hit Puerto Rico in almost 90 years.

"The goal is one: Saving lives", Cruz tweeted Saturday after Trump attacked both her and the reporters covering Puerto Rico's devastation.

The president has made a number of contentious statements on Puerto Rico since it was devastated by Hurricane Maria, which left at least 90% of its residents without power or running water.

Even though local officials had said publicly as early as September 20, the day of the storm, that the island was "destroyed", the sense of urgency didn't begin to penetrate the White House until Monday, when images of the utter destruction and desperation - and criticism of the administration's response - began to appear on television, one senior administration official said... He said 11 regional staging areas have been receiving food and water across the island and that telecommunication has been restored in several key municipalities, including San Juan.

OJ Simpson released from prison after 9 years
During that robbery in 2007, he was part of a group that raided a hotel and casino to steal sports memorabilia at gunpoint. According to Cook, as hard as collection has been, he's ready for "Round 2" if Simpson earns anything out of prison.

The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, has strong ties to Pittsburgh. Of the latter, he noted in that US territory "people working hard". "Doing everything we can to help great people of PR!" I am begging anyone that can hear us to save us from dying. "President Trump, anyone, help us!" she said.

On Friday, Carmen Yulin Cruz criticised Trump's Republican administration and begged for more help, pleas that received widespread television coverage in the mainland United States. "You don't start trying to criticism them", Mr. Kasich told CNN's Jake Tapper.

In addition to promising to do "everything we can" to support Puerto Rico, Trump also found time to continue his assault on the NFL and league-wide protests against racial injustice and Trump himself.

The praise for Puerto Rico's governor continued a theme from Saturday when the president praised the work of Gov. Ricardo Rosselló shortly after criticizing the mayor of the island's capital, San Juan.

Cruz, who has been living in a shelter after her home was destroyed in the hurricane, said municipal employees were working as hard as they could.

During the president's speech in Alabama Friday night, he talked about final choices being made with respect to the wall. The area runs parallel to the U.S. -Mexico border and is just a few yards away from a preexisting border fence.

Barragan, who hails from Ecuador, has been to Puerto Rico three times, the first being her honeymoon in 2013.

"If Congress doesn't take action with a significant package, then we are looking at a possible humanitarian crisis", he said.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency sent out a request to law enforcement agencies across the nation asking for officers who could volunteer on the island, Barragan said.

Mr. Trump temporarily waived the Jones Act earlier this week to ease the delivery of aid by sea to Puerto Rico.
