San Juan mayor pushes back on Trump admin

They.want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort.

The day before, Trump had lashed out at Cruz, deriding "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".

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz Friday angrily slammed acting Department of Homeland Security Elaine Duke's claims that the government's response to hurricane relief in Puerto Rico is "good news", insisting that the situation on the US territory is one of life and death. She implored the president, who is set to visit the United States territory on Tuesday, to "make sure somebody is in charge that is up to the task of saving lives".

He has pledged to spare no effort to help Puerto Rico recover from Maria's aftermath, and tweeted that military personnel and first responders have done "an awesome job", despite having "no electric, roads, phones etc".

President Donald Trump says his administration has "done a great job with the nearly impossible situation in Puerto Rico" after Hurricane Maria struck the island. She also drove past still-flooded streets, twisted billboards and roofs with gaping holes, and offered encouragement to some of the emergency personnel the USA government has on the ground.

Earlier Friday, Cruz responded to Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke who called the Puerto Rico relief effort a "good news story".

Cruz was on ABC's "This Week, " Long and Mnuchin spoke on NBC's "Meet the Press, " Sanders was on CNN's "State of the Union" and Schumer appeared on CBS' "Face the Nation". The major has accused his administration of "killing us with the inefficiency".

Trump is out with a series of tweets criticizing San Juan Carmen Yulin Cruz for criticizing the Trump administration's hurricane response.

Speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper on Saturday night, Cruz said she's not a Democrat. By now, telecommunications are back for about 30 percent of the island, almost half of the supermarkets have reopened at least for reduced hours and about 60 percent of the gas stations are pumping. But many remain desperate for water and other necessities.

"Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello just stated: 'The Administration and the President, every time we've spoken, they've delivered, '" the president tweeted. "They are working so hard, but there's nothing left", he said. "It's been wiped out".

President Donald Trump says Washington is - in his words - "fully engaged in the disaster and the response and recovery effort".

Trump said he was not aware of Duke's "good-news" remark.

"I am not going to be distracted by small comments, by politics, by petty issues", she said.

Millie Soto donated, saying, "I want to help my people, I want to help my island".

On Thursday, the President placed US Army Lt. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan in overall command of military operations to aid Puerto Rico in recovering from the storm.

On the eastern side of Orlando, in a heavily Puerto Rican community, donations are pouring in from people anxious about family on the Caribbean island ravaged by Hurricane Maria.

Bush famously told his emergency management director, Michael Brown, "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job" during what proved to be a tragically inept federal response to deadly Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Trump also criticized Puerto Rican officials for waiting for federal help to begin responding to the storm. "I could've played. People say I remind them of an National Football League player because I'm combative, I like to win, and I might have a degenerative brain disease", Baldwin says.

"This is, there's a truckload of stuff that can not be taken to people story", said Cruz. "This is a people are dying story".

Top reinsurers of Puerto Rico insurance companies - which tend to rely heavily on reinsurance - include Mapfre SA, QBE Insurance Group Ltd, Lloyd's of London [SOLYD.UL] and American International Group Inc, according to Keefe, Bruyette & Woods.Mapfre, which also acts as an insurer in Puerto Rico, expects "recent natural disasters" to cut its full-year profit by between 150 million and 200 million euros ($175 million and $235 million), the Spanish company said this week.Lloyd's of London said on Thursday it expects net losses of $4.5 billion from hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
