In addition, Americans were far more likely to donate money to victims of hurricanes Harvey and Irma, with Red Cross donations to Harvey standing at $350 million, Irma at $45 million, while donations to those affected by Hurricane Maria stand at a relatively low $9 million.

Known deaths from Maria in the USA territory stand at 34.

Trump's comments did not go over well with some USA lawmakers.

He could order the U.S. Justice Department to defend the 2016 federal law that Puerto Rico is trying to use to slash its debt and about $49 billion in pension obligations.

Mr Trump, who has grappled with hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria in the past six weeks, praised the federal assistance so far in the USA territory but not without a remark about its financial cost.

"We couldn't get ahold of my mom for seven days", she said.

Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz wore the shirt during an interview with Spanish-language station Univision.

"I appreciate your support and I know you appreciate ours", Trump said.

In a statement on Tuesday, network provider AT&T Inc (T.N) praised the FCC efforts at rebuilding communications infrastructure. "10,000 federal workers now on island doing a fantastic job".

On that same note, anyone assuming problems with disaster relief are exclusively the fault of President Trump is incorrect.

In Washington, Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., noted that many people in more remote areas still in dire straits and in need of food and water. She cited a reading from Colossians that spoke to the island's resilience.

President Donald Trump has maintained that the federal response to the category 4 hurricane was well coordinated and he has repeatedly accused the media of exaggerating the plight of Puerto Ricans.

While Santiago's nursery was considerably damaged during the storm, many plants were destroyed and the roofs of some greenhouses blew off, he was able to regroup quickly, with electricity to keep pumping water from his two wells.

Papali said that when he landed, he saw many military personnel waiting for instructions, with pounds upon pounds of supplies.

Still, he said, that was enough to keep the power on, and the nursery did not "have to worry about trees falling on the power lines". "Especially to those rural and remote towns".
