Trump Attacks Critics Of Puerto Rico Aid Effort: 'Politically Motivated Ingrates'

Jose Gonzalez has taken everything out of his home in Estancia Del Sol outside of Rio Grande after the hurricane destroyed it. Many people in the area have not received any aid one week after the hurricane Maria. The roof of their home is gone and they

The fake Trump then reminded Villaseñor's Cruz that Puerto Rico is "an island in the water". It's been compared to the bungled federal response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005 under President George W. Bush.

"We are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency", Cruz said during a news conference on Friday.

Cruz, for her part, says she's focusing on helping the people of Puerto Rico and doesn't want to get distracted by "petty comments".

Trump, along with First Lady Melania Trump, is set to visit the island on Tuesday.

In his most recent social media posts, the president is lauding any officials associated with Puerto Rico who aren't chastising him.

Nearly half the island's 3.4 million population are without drinking water, the US Defence Department said on Thursday.

President Trump also used Twitter to take a moment and praise restoration efforts taking place on the devastated island.

Star Trek star and activist George Takei, who has openly criticized the Trump administration on many issues including LGBT rights, weighed in as well.

"I can not fathom the thought that the greatest nation in the world can not figure out logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles", she said.

Trump started the day by attacking Cruz on Twitter after she criticized the relief efforts in Puerto Rico so far in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

Cruz complained in multiple interviews about the USA administration's response to the crisis in Puerto Rico.

Cruz responded, writing that "the goal is one: saving lives".

Trump is planning to visit the US territory on Tuesday.

"People are now starting to recognize the fantastic work that has been done by FEMA and our great Military".

The mayor of the island's capital city has complained about a slow response to the disaster.

The President's tone provoked a major backlash among Democrats, community leaders and major celebrities who lambasted him for casting blame and appearing insensitive to the suffering of USA citizens.

"... Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help". "When I read that tweet ..."

Trump's tweets were a biting attack on the leader of a community in crisis.

Puerto Rico was ravaged by a Category 4 hurricane on September 20 and has since been desperate for supplies more than a week after the storm's initial landing.
