Louisiana sends emergency response teams to Puerto Rico

Louisiana sends emergency response teams to Puerto Rico

That order included Puerto Rico, but expired last week shortly after Maria struck. "I know there's a tendency for fatigue because we've just been through two hurricanes".

The White House said Trump will make calls to several Puerto Rico officials, including Gov. Ricardo Rosselló, on Saturday afternoon. "Outside of the fake news or politically motivated ingrates", Trump tweeted.

On Friday, Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz voiced dissatisfaction over the United States' response to Maria, which knocked out power to most of the island and has many scrambling for food, water, and shelter.

"The people of Puerto Rico are suffering one of the worst disasters in the history of that island, and we all have to do everything we can to help them".

US Vice President Mike Pence also defended his boss's performance by taking to Twitter.

The caregiver invited Lalo to come back to visit again in the future, so she and the residents can thank him once more.

Mr. Miranda suggested the president was lying about the effectiveness of the federal response, and took aim at Mr. Trump for spending the weekend at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J.

She has been working 24/7.

Pressed on the tweet, the governor said the president's words were not aimed at Puerto Rican citizens. You have been GOLFING.

"I wasn't saying anything nasty about the president", Cruz told MSNBC. "Help us save lives. This is the time to show our 'true colors.' We can not be distracted by anything else", the mayor tweeted.

"She said that?" San Juan Mayor Carmon Yulin Cruz asked twice during an interview on "New Day" on CNN.

Cruz continued, "Dammit, this is not a good news story".

He said he was not aware of Ms Duke's "good-news" remark. When you're drinking from a creek, it's not a good news story.

"It's the largest (response) that we've done since Katrina and I think it's appropriate", Christie said, referring to the hurricane that devastated New Orleans and the region in 2005.

"I was trying to call my parents, it would go to voicemail really fast so I started crying", Emma said.

Trump presented the trophy to Team U.S.A., the first sitting president to present the tournament's winning team with a trophy. There are 77 other towns that are waiting anxiously and will be very grateful to you and to the American people if you continue to step up to the moral imperative that you have taken on all over the world to help those in need.

"They are working so hard, but there's nothing left", he said.

With limited access to food, water, medicine and power 10 days after Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico, many have begun to question the federal response to the humanitarian crisis unfolding on the island.
