'We Cannot Be Distracted' From 'Saving Lives,' San Juan Mayor Says

Playing politics with hurricanes is a low-rent tactic

The Governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rossello, is a great guy and leader who is really working hard.

A sign that reads in spanish, Playita (neighborhood), need water and food, SOS, is seen Baldorioty de Castro highway, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Sept 30, 2017. Irizarry said she's being told there's supplies also sitting at the airport in San Juan.

Tesla, Inc., is sending Puerto Rico hundreds of its Powerwall battery systems that can be paired with solar panels to help restore electric power to the island, according to a story from Bloomberg.

Schumer says Trump should focus on helping Puerto Rico instead of tweeting against Cruz, "who's watching her people die".

"The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump", he wrote.

Donald Trump has said officials in hurricane-hit Puerto Rico "want everything to be done for them" in an astonishing attack on Twitter.

Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert told reporters Thursday that Washington has sent 10,000 federal relief workers, including more than 7,000 troops, to the island.

However, as reported by the Daily Caller earlier today, FEMA administrator Brock Long defended the commander-in-chief emergency efforts from Cruz.

"We are dying here, and I can not fathom he thought that the greatest nation int he world can not figure out logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles long", Cruz said. "I know there's a tendency for fatigue because we've just been through two hurricanes".

Prince Harry Just Did The Cutest Thing At The Invictus Games
All of the well-known men seemed to really enjoy the games, and during breaks, they also took some time to pose for the cameras. Harry on Sunday played host to US First Lady Melania Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the Invictus Games .

Mr Trump is set to visit the island on Tuesday.

"We have done a great job with the nearly impossible situation in Puerto Rico".

Ohio's Republican governor John Kasich, who challenged Mr Trump for the Republican nomination past year, also voiced criticism of the President's comments. "They still have not gotten to the people that need to receive them", Medina said.

Mr. Trump lashed out at Cruz on Twitter Saturday morning for her criticism of his administration's response. Cruz says that "if he asks to meet with me, of course I would meet with him".

"With leadership of @POTUS & @ricardorossello - @FEMA & Team Puerto Rico making real progress", said the former IN governor.

"Well, maybe from where she is standing it's a good news story".

Trump is planning to visit the US territory on Tuesday.

Later on Saturday evening, Trump tweeted out a video featuring footage of United States troops assisting Puerto Ricans, overlaid with an audio clip of Rossello praising the Trump administration's response to the natural disaster.

Elaine Duke made the comments upon landing in San Juan. Lalo immediately jumped into action, loading his company's plane with $15,000 worth of supplies, and headed toward hurricane-battered Puerto Rico.
