Puerto Rico fights to recover weeks after hurricane

  • Puerto Rico remains in crisis three weeks after Hurricane Maria struck as a Category Four stormMore

Despite the back and forth, the source echoed White House assurances from press secretary Sarah Sanders that the Trump administration is fully committed to Puerto Rico's recovery from Maria. A total lack of.accountability say the Governor.

In a series of tweets, the president added, "electric and all infrastructure was disaster before hurricanes".

The president adds: "We can not keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been unbelievable (under the most hard circumstances) in P.R. forever!"

Hours after that message was posted, Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said via Twitter, "The U.S. citizens in Puerto Rico are requesting the support that any of our fellow citizens would receive across our Nation".

Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico three weeks ago, killing at least 43 people and leaving much of the Caribbean island, a US territory, without electricity or safe drinking water.

Ryan said he didn't know about Trump's tweets.

Congressional leaders of both political parties defended the need to send resources to the US territory, which was devastated by two hurricanes this summer.

Last Wednesday, Trump asked Congress to approve an emergency aid package of $29 billion for Puerto Rico. This is the time to show our "true colors".

"And San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, who has feuded publicly with the President over the federal response, said on Twitter that Trump was incapable of fulfilling the moral imperative to help the people of PR. Shame on you.!"

"@POTUS your comments about Puerto Rico are unbecoming of a Commander in Chief they seem more to come from a "Hater in Chief", she tweeted.

"The federal government should stay in Puerto Rico as long as necessary", Sen.

He added: "There will be a period in which ... we hope sooner rather than later, to where the United States military and FEMA, generally speaking, can withdraw because then the government and the people of Puerto Rico are recovering sufficiently to start the process of rebuilding".

Toxic waste is not the only drinking water worry in Puerto Rico.

While MLB has been doing what it could to lend a hand to Puerto Rico, Trump hasn't appeared to be all that eager to help. The death toll in Florida after Hurricane Irma, which made landfall on September 10, also reached 75, the Miami Herald reported, not counting the more than 38 people who died in the Caribbean.

60 percent of wastewater treatment plants are working on generator power.

Celebrities and politicians have responded to the threat by arguing that Puerto Rico needs more aid, not less (obviously).

Maria devastated the island amid a severe financial crisis, with the government filing for bankruptcy in May. He added, "We've saved a lot of lives".

"They're not starving", Perry said.

Some of those mayors have called for all supplies to go through them, so they can distribute the aid.

It was not immediately clear which Superfund sites the EPA was referring to.
