  • Lin-Manuel Miranda Excoriates Trump for His Tweets About San Juan's Mayor

"[Puerto Ricans] want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort", he said on Twitter.

She is far from the only one, but she is a vocal and media-friendly advocate, and Mr Trump does not like being made to look bad on TV stations across the world. Thank you to the Governor of P.R. and to all of those who are working so closely with our First Responders.

After going days without mentioning Puerto Rico following Maria, however, administration officials have attempted to play catchup, holding numerous press conferences to describe their relief efforts; Trump now manages to get in a mention of Puerto Rico at almost every public event.

"Well, maybe from where she's standing it's a good-news story", said the mayor, who has been pleading for help since Maria hit Puerto Rico more than a week ago.

Trump says in tweets that the federal government has done "a great job with the nearly impossible situation".

Puerto Rico, home to more than 3 million US citizens, has had limited food, bottled water and medical supplies since Hurricane Maria struck nine days ago.

Sanders drew a contrast between Trump and San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, saying Trump was "speaking from his fancy golf club, playing golf with his billionaire friends, attacking the mayor of San Juan, who is struggling to bring electricity to the island, food to the island, water to the island, gas to the island".

Trump says in a tweet that some on the USA territory "want everything to be done for them".

The president is scheduled to travel to Puerto Rico on Tuesday. We know the Mayor of San Juan is a heroine.

On Wednesday, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) reported that some 42 percent of the population of the beleaguered island nation is without drinkable water, and at least 10,000 people are living in 161 shelters.

The governor, Ricardo A. Rosselló, has called Hurricane Maria the "greatest catastrophe" in the island's modern history.

FEMA Administrator Brock Long drew widespread mockery online for calling the Maria relief efforts "the most logistically challenging event the United States has ever seen". When the relief trucks rolled into town, residents like Manolo Morales were desperate for food and water.

Blumenthal adds the temporary suspension of the Jones Act, which requires goods shipped between points in the United States to be carried by USA built and operated boats, does not go far enough.

She also responded to Trump on Saturday, tweeting photos of Puerto Rico's recovery efforts and writing that her only goal was to save lives. "You have to be really careful about what you say, because a lot of things can be taken in the wrong context and I always want to be respectful; I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings".
