Trump says US must 'wipe out' Puerto Rico debt

Trump says US must 'wipe out' Puerto Rico debt

"I wouldn't take it word for word with that", Mick Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, told CNN's "New Day" on Wednesday. "I wasn't saying anything nasty about the President".

AP reported that in the nearby neighborhood of Playita, residents have yet to see federal emergency officials since Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico on September 20 and are still struggling to clean up housing debris and sewage. He compared the number with "a real catastrophe" like Hurricane Katrina in 2005, which caused more than 1,800 fatalities when it slammed into Louisiana and Alabama.

Cruz and Trump met Tuesday during Trump's visit to the storm-ravaged island.

One official Trump did not call out for praise was the mayor of Puerto Rico's capital San Juan, Carmen Yulin Cruz, whom Trump criticized on Twitter over the weekend after she expressed frustration with the pace of the federal response.

"This is Trump-splaining at its best", Colbert joked. After a woman explained what the self-descriptive tablets do, a disgusted-looking Trump asked her if she would drink dirty water after using the tablets. "There was no exchange with anybody, with none of the mayors", she said. "The bacteria is going to start coming, there's no water, the supplies are going to get low, no gasoline, no diesel, no refrigeration". "She doesn't have a choice".

"Flashlights, you don't need them anymore". Numerous people - including reality star Kim Kardashian - replied to the president asking him to help people instead of spending his time on social media.

Colbert to Trump: "You're at a disaster - not working the floor of your casino!" "Maybe he also hates his job". Trump spent much of the briefing issuing effusive congratulations to response teams and members of his Cabinet, while adding in a few not-so-subtle digs at the USA territory. "He didn't mean it", Fallon joked while impersonating the vice president, and also had a joke about Trump's budget comment.

Trump's trip to Puerto Rico is well on its way to being the worst post-disaster trip taken by a U.S. president since George W. Bush checked out Katrina damage from the sky.

"I think what you heard the President say is that Puerto Rico is going to have to figure out a way to solve its debt problem", Mulvaney told Bloomberg News. "'This is sad, exclamation point!"

The president also didn't steer away from recent controversies.
