Trump is charging Puerto Rican hurricane victims to be evacuated

Lacking Water, Electricity And Phones, Many In Puerto Rico Are Still Waiting For Aid

"[They are] always trying to find a way to blame the president for things, when they would do much better to figure out how to help", Conway told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" program. They've got the Army Corps of Engineers, that's right.

US President Donald Trump has been warned to "quiet down" his Twitter account in the wake of Hurricane Maria's impact on Puerto Rico.

Trump says in tweets that the federal government has done "a great job with the nearly impossible situation".

Trump spent the first four minutes of a tax-overhaul pitch to the National Association of Manufacturers talking about hurricane relief efforts.

Trump, along with First Lady Melania Trump, is set to visit the island on Tuesday.

Speaking at a news conference on Friday, an emotional Cruz appeared to take issue to a series of oddly upbeat comments made by Trump administration officials.

"Mr. Trump, I beg you to take charge and save lives", she said.

On Saturday morning, she responded to the president's tweet by saying nothing can distract from the priority of saving lives.

Trump on Thursday waived the Jones Act, easing shipping restrictions on relief goods that the government and nonprofits are trying to deliver to the island.

"They are working so hard, but there's nothing left", he said. "Many we spoke to on the ground said they don't want to leave - but how can they stay?" People on the side of the road were standing near cell towers just to see if they can get reception.

But to Senator Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent, Trump's tweets were "unspeakable".

A few hours after posting her message to Trump, Rihanna called for a "round of applause" for efforts to aid Puerto Rico from former presidents George H.W. Bush, Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter. "I don't know what world Trump is living in".

Puerto Rico's hurricane crisis is a reminder that Puerto Ricans are South Florida's fastest growing population.

He added: "We all have to remember the people of Puerto Rico are American citizens and entitled to the same help as any other community in America".

On Saturday, Trump directly targeted the mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulin Cruz, who had questioned the pace of United States relief efforts to Puerto Rico battered by Hurricane Maria.

Shaun King, a writer and liberal activist with a popular social-media presence, said the president's tweet targeting Ms. Cruz contained "the most frightful, racist, despicable things Trump has ever said". She said as many as seven people are dead after water and oxygen didn't get to them in time. He's driving the truck to Cleveland so that goods can be shipped to people in need.
