Donald Trump Throws Paper Towels in Puerto Rico

Trump's brief stay continued with an appearance at a local church, called Calvary Chapel of Puerto Rico, where he tossed paper towels into a crowd like they were basketballs-yet another self-congratulatory move on the President's island-wide propaganda tour.

"They owe a lot of money to your friends on Wall Street".

"But that's fine because we've saved a lot of lives".

Carmen Yulin Cruz, who appeared on Univision on Wednesday, said she wore the shirt to take on Trump, who attacked her on Twitter after she made an impassioned plea to get help for Puerto Rico, which was ravaged by the Category 4 storm on September 20.

"What is your death count as of this moment?"

Investors holding Puerto Rico's debt have been in a long tussle to minimize their losses. You can be very proud. Sixteen versus literally thousands of people.

Governor Ricardo Rosselló had initially agreed with Trump's comments that only 16 deaths were attributed to the hurricane, but hours later changed that figure to 34.

While Cruz says things have drastically improved in the last few days, she says it's mostly because of nongovernmental donations from Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, Boston, and NY. His paper-towel tossing act certainly proved that he is no Obama, Bush or Clinton.

There is still no power; half the 3.4 million people do not have running water; 65 per cent are without communications; and nearly 9,000 have been forced from their homes.

"They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort", he said, scoffing at "politically motivated ingrates" who had criticized the work of the federal government.

Among those who met him at Muniz Air National Guard Base in Carolina was San Juan mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, who later took part in a meeting with the President which she described as "productive". It's allowed the mayor to use FEMA donations to help municipalities that haven't received as much help.

Trump was referring to Puerto Rico's need to fix its own debt issues through its oversight board, Mulvaney said in an interview with CNN Wednesday morning.

The US territory's economy already was in recession before Hurricane Maria and its government had filed for bankruptcy. Less than 10 percent of the island has power.

Mexico had planned to send material assistance to the United States after Hurricane Harvey, which hit Texas in late August, but later withdrew the offer after the first of the two earthquakes struck in the country's south in early September.

"Weaver ripped the Trump administration's "lack of active engagement and support" for the recovery efforts following Hurricane Maria and Trump's visit to the US territory". He also complained that the small territory's disaster threw the nation's budget "a little out of whack".

But US authorities were slow to accept, and after the September 7 natural disaster Mexico revoked the offer, saying it had to concentrate on the relief effort at home.
