Stephen Colbert Pounds Donald Trump Over Puerto Rico Visit

Trump Poor leadership by San Juan mayor

And, she added, Mr Trump was sometimes more "miscommunicator in chief" than commander in chief.

Mr Trump compared the death roll from Hurricane Maria to that of 2005's Hurricane Katrina in the U.S., which he deemed "a real catastrophe". You know they owe a lot of money to your friends on Wall Street and we're going to have to wipe that out.

But on Tuesday, she said her meeting with White House staff was "productive".

While visiting the devastated Puerto Rico on Tuesday (Oct. 3), Trump made some tasteless comments, indicating that the current situation in the island was not a "real catastrophe", although they have been without water, supplies, and electricity for days.

A new poll released Wednesday, which was conducted prior to Trump's Puerto Rico visit, revealed that most Americans don't approve of the president's approach to relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

Cruz was Trump's most prominent critic heading into the visit, which followed a weekend in which Trump pushed back on criticism over federal relief response and cited the "poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico" on Twitter.

'We are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency, ' she said in a news conference, 'I am begging, begging anyone that can hear us, to save us from dying.

Despite the selfless efforts of many Americans, President Donald Trump has been less than supportive of the US territory in its time of need, going as far as to say the Puerto Rican crisis is throwing "our budget a little out of whack".

In fact, during the interview, when asked about how Puerto Rico is now faring, she started with this aid from individual entities, only mentioning FEMA's response as an add-on.

"It doesn't make you feel good", Carmen Yulin Cruz told CNN, responding to the President's controversial comments during his visit to the hurricane-ravaged island.

Trump also spent time on the mic praising local officials who had hailed his administration's response to Maria, and appeared to downplay the 34 deaths the hurricane caused. "Trump patting himself on the back here will seem even more callous". "Puerto Rico was already undergoing a bankruptcy process that was going to substantially cut the island's debt".
