Cruz has accepted the White House's invitation to attend a briefing with the president in San Juan.

On Saturday, Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz lashed out at the Trump administration over their supposed incompetence in providing aid to the devastated country. He, along with the rest of the island, are forced to live day to day enduring apocalyptic conditions. Well, you know what? "We need distribution, which is not happening".

These are always tough assignments, but Delafield told KOIN 6 News "there's something that's really inspiring, that's really energizing about seeing a community pull together".

In contrast, Rosselló praised the administration on Saturday, saying it had done a good job of responding to Puerto Rico's concerns after the hurricane. But she didn't stop there. The citizens cannot receive some of the daily necessities that require power as a result. "I am done being polite".

At a nearby health center, Centro de Salud Entegra en Narajito, administrator Felix Ortiz Baez said one of the most common ailments the staff is treating is gastroenteritis from drinking tainted water. "People are suffering and we want to help". He said there were about 6,400 Department of Defense workers on the island, up from 4,600 two days prior. 10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job.

The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico's largest city, said recents comments made by U.S. President Donald Trump during his visit to the island were an insult to the people of the island nation.

Sounds pretty bad, right?

Drawing on his military background, Castillo made the shelter and its residents his mission.

In the town, where homes painted green, blue, purple and white, dot the steep hillside among serpentine roads, Michelle Narvaez, 40, had just returned from grocery shopping.

In a mixture of emojis and abbreviations, Cher wrote, "People are destitute, asshat, throw money". While half the island's grocery stores are open, supplies are scarce at many, The Associated Press reported.

"People still don't have electricity and they still don't have cell service again, and they still don't have water in their home", she said. Additionally, Puerto Rico is experiencing fuel shortages.

Amid the economic woes, the island has also seen the largest percentage drop in population of any U.S. state or territory since 2010, which will likely hamper any recovery. "It may have taken some time to get up and running", he says, "but now the aid is coming in as fast as they can take it". "My dad wanted me to go into oil and gas", he says with a chuckle about his father, Wayne Newhouse, a retired oilpatch executive. FEMA has also managed to restore power to thousands of people in major cities. Obviously, she was not personally involved with collaborating with FEMA.

The island is still grappling with the damage caused by Hurricane Maria and deeply plunged in recovery efforts. But his trips on Tuesday and Wednesday will be amount to the weightiest tests yet of his ability to project both sadness and resolve, and a gauge of his willingness to drop the bombastic political rhetoric that he's injected into nearly every situation since becoming president.

And adding to the plethora of anti-Trump smears, Trump, according to Cruz, has a "communications problem" and is therefore "miscommunicator-in-chief".
