Donald Trump defends Puerto Rico effort, but his tweets draw new criticism

Lin-Manuel Miranda to Donald Trump: 'You're Going Straight to Hell'

Lin-Manuel Miranda to Donald Trump: 'You're Going Straight to Hell'

Cruz, in emotional appeals on TV on Friday, has become the face of Puerto Rican officials distraught over what some of them charge is insufficient response by the USA government to the crisis.

Baldwin's Trump, mouth agape, hesitated before stammering, "I mean, I do, but not many know that, no".

Now that Puerto Rico was addressed, Trump continued the discussion not on football (to our surprise) but on North Korea, insisting that our "wonderful secretary of state" not waste time worrying about "Little Rocket Man". "If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency", Cruz said during a press conference.

Villaseñor promptly informs him that Puerto Rico is a US territory.

The president launched a series of tweets attacking Cruz early Saturday, accusing the mayor of exhibiting poor leadership in the midst of the recovery efforts and claiming Puerto Rican leaders want the federal government to do everything for them.

According to Sutopo, volcanic activity of Mount Agung remains high although it is not predictable when it will erupt. Many Indonesians live near volcanoes because lava flows can make the surrounding soil and land fertile for farming.

After assuring her help will arrive on Tuesday or "Wednesday at the latest", and hearing Yulín Cruz say that's not soon enough, Baldwin's Trump says: "Well, you should have paid your bills". Hanging up on Cruz, he mutters, "Wow that woman was so nasty".

On Saturday morning, Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló provided an update on relief efforts, saying the number of gasoline stations now open has increased from 450 four days ago to 714. How nasty? Are you shaking?

Che took the president to task after reading Trump's tweet that said Cruz had been "told by the Democrats" that she "must be nasty to Trump". "You wanna go smoke a Virginia Slim until your hand stops moving?" Its hurricane relief. These people need help. Trump then tells her that he could have been an National Football League player.

"The problem that we have with the mayor unfortunately is that unity of command is ultimately what's needed to be successful in this response", Long said. "I should have said it was a black versus white issue". "I'd love to keep doing this per my availability, but I have other things I'm going to do, so I guess we'll figure it out", explained Baldwin.
