Trump Attacks 'Politically Motivated Ingrates' After Hurricane Maria

Cruz had been among the harshest critics of Trump's response to hurricanes Irma and Maria, which have killed at least 16 people and left millions across Puerto Rico without food, water and electricity in recent weeks. "Outside of the Fake News or politically motivated ingrates. people are now starting to recognize the unbelievable work" done by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the military, he tweeted.

"The president, instead of tweeting against the mayor of San Juan who's watching her people die and just made a plea for help, ought to roll up his sleeves and get to work here", he said.

"So I am done being polite". "I am not going to be distracted by small comments, by politics, by petty issues".

Trump also dragged Cruz on Twitter over her "poor leadership" skills.

The president interrupted his weekend at his eponymous New Jersey golf club to tweet: "They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort". "10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job".

Sanders says that, due to some of Trump's past comments, he thinks "we have a right to be suspect that he is treating the people of Puerto Rico in a different way than he has treated the people of Texas or Florida".

"I want to just remember them", he continued. "This is a three-star general saying he doesn't have the appropriate amount of tools". Currently, 30 aircraft and over 500 trucks are working to provide relief efforts, according to FEMA figures.

Palestine is now INTERPOL member
In Jerusalem, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the decision "seriously harms the chances to achieve peace". General Assembly recognized Palestine as a non-member observer state in 2012 and UNESCO approved it as a full member.

"Foreign flag ships are typically not allowed in to deliver these products unless USA carriers can't do it, and the administration's view was they got all the commodities in to Puerto Rico, they didn't need to waive the Jones Act".

Puerto Rico's 3.4 million people were still nearly entirely without power Saturday. But he warned that the U.S. Congress would need to help rebuild the island.

"Monday and Tuesday we can pivot hopefully to a theme of stabilizing as we address temporary housing and sustaining the flow of commodities and basic government services, including temporary power", Bossert said in the memo, which was reported by Axios.

If food and water does not arrive in time, she says the disaster will amount to something "close to a genocide".

"Actually, I was asking for help - I wasn't saying anything nasty about the president", Cruz said.

Trump and other administration officials insist that the government response has been strong despite widespread damage to roads and bridges as well as poor infrastructure on the island. On Sunday, budget director Mick Mulvaney said Cruz hadn't visited a FEMA emergency field office in San Juan even though Vice President Mike Pence said she had.

Rescuers have yet to reach barrios, or neighborhoods, in the center of the island, Jaime Barlucea, mayor of Adjuntas, said during a Friday news conference in San Juan.
