San Juan Mayor Rips DHS Official

Gov. Malloy administration issues guidance to schools regarding displaced students from Puerto Rico

Russel Honore, highly lauded for commanding the military response after another big storm, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, said the military deployments to Puerto Rico should have begun at least four days earlier. "And mayors all over Puerto Rico are getting to the supply areas and been told, look, call us a few days later".

Around the same time that Trump was on Twitter, Cruz tweeted thanks to the politicians who had seen what San Juan needed first hand.

At a news conference Saturday, Rossello wouldn't comment on Trump's tweets, saying he hadn't seen them and would not be drawn into a political fight.

"Such poor leadership ability by the mayor of San Juan and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help", Trump said. "Many we spoke to on the ground said they don't want to leave - but how can they stay? 10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job", Trump said on Saturday.

"Damn it, this is not a good-news story.

This is a "people are dying" story", Mayor Cruz said in an interview on Friday morning. "But, you know, that is not who we are here in San Juan".

Trump visits Puerto Rico on Tuesday. Members tell Newswatch 16 that collecting the items has been giving them peace of mind as they worry about their loved ones in Puerto Rico.

Micah Hyde had two interceptions on the day while Tre'Davious White had a fumble recovery for a touchdown. After the Falcons' top two receivers left the game with injuries, Ryan was searching for other receivers.

The president's comments caused a backlash on Twitter. "Some people are doing what they need to do, mostly locals, but the government is still slow, and our people are really hurt".

She continued: "If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency and the bureaucracy. And I can not fathom the thought that the greatest nation in the world can not figure out logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles long", Cruz said Friday.

Budget director Mick Mulvaney says the public needs to "judge us by the actions, please" in terms of efforts to help Puerto Rico. She says all she did "was ask for help". But the agency says it can not now accept repayments, so those who need to complete urgent travel before repaying the loan have to contact the government to petition for a replacement passport.

"Well, maybe from where she is standing it's a good news story". He's driving the truck to Cleveland so that goods can be shipped to people in need.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz is answering with her own tweets.

FEMA told ABC News that any aid it has delivered to Puerto Rico has been immediately distributed.

"Ultimately the government of Puerto Rico will have to work with us" on the massive rebuilding effort and how it will be funded and what to do about the "tremendous amount of existing debt already on the island".
