Trump Speaks With San Juan Residents, Says Mayor Has Done 'Fantastic Job'

Joy Reid

President Donald Trump on Tuesday said Puerto Rico should be "very proud" that only 16 people died after Hurricane Maria devastated the island. Eliminating it, in other words, would "throw the budget out of whack" three times as badly as the money spent to assist Puerto Rico over the short term.

Following a plea for aid on Friday by San Juan's mayor, Trump said the mayor was being "nasty".

With most of the island still without power, simple things like refrigerating insulin have become difficult.

When he can, he is giving cash to the most desperate. They came from Texas, they came from Louisiana, they came from Florida, and there was no - how many nights' rest have you gotten? Her response could not be heard. Some people have expressed concerns about the effect that extended outages will have on the ill and vulnerable in the tropical heat.

Trump's motorcade passed the hotel from the freeway during the drive to the hospital.

"I have been invited to attend a briefing with President Trump while he visits Puerto Rico".

Rosselló said the root of the problem is no power and the difficulty to distribute water, food and medicine to neighborhoods, NBC News reported.

The president also didn't steer away from recent controversies. Others noted that Puerto Rico has no electoral votes to offer in 2020.

The Comfort has arrived in San Juan with 500 medics to help, heal and treat a variety of injuries.

It isn't the first time Mr. Trump has hit Puerto Rico over the category 4 storm. I have no doubt that the federal government will be taking a hard look at large infrastructure investments and I hope that local governments look at building and general construction codes to make future buildings more hurricane survivable.

U.S. Transportation Command is airlifting mobile cellular telecommunications equipment to Puerto Rico to restore islandwide communications. "So unnecessary. Who can believe what happened to Las Vegas?" "Our country has really gone all out". "When you're drinking from a creek, it's not a good news story". "I think it's now acknowledged what a great job we've done. Something that other administrations would never have done, that I can tell you".

During his briefing in San Juan, Trump singled out Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló "for not playing politics" with the response.

The Las Vegas community was rocked when a shooter perched in a Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino 32 floors up rained bullets down on concert goers Sunday night. He said 10 of 69 hospitals on the island have electricity restored and the rest are relying on generators. Trump had attacked the island's residents and leaders, saying they wanted "everything to be done for them" after Cruz begged for additional aid.

Despite the amount of donations already made, Isa made a point that it'll take years for Puerto Rico to recover from the effects of the hurricane.

He shook hands with a crowd who had come to see him and posed for selfies with many of them. About 88 percent of cellphone sites are still out of service. The number swelled to 200 in five days.

"They're learning a lot more and it'll be announced at an appropriate time", Trump said.
