Trump visited relief camps meeting the survivors and distributed supplies even throwing paper-towel rolls into the crowd.

While talking about the devastation Puerto Rico received as a result of Hurricane Maria, Donald Trump said that when compared to Hurricane Katrina, Maria is nowhere near as big of a catastrophe.

Later, the governor said the death toll in Puerto Rico included 19 people who died as a direct result of the storm and 15 whose deaths were caused indirectly by the storm, local media reported.

U.S. President Donald Trump visited hurricane-wracked Puerto Rico on Tuesday, hoping to highlight federal recovery efforts and fix damage done by his controversial early response to the crisis.

The most recent shot came from Cruz, who wore a t-shirt with the word "NASTY" written on it while castigating Trump in a TV interview the day after he visited the USA territory.

Some 12,000 civilian federal workers and a much smaller number of United States military personnel were in Puerto Rico to deliver aid and assist with relief efforts, though many criticised Washington for its delayed response to the devastation. Rosselló has said he hopes 25% of electricity customers will have power by the end of October.

'There's a lot of love in this room, a lot of love, ' Trump said.

The Walking Dead WILL Crossover With Fear The Walking Dead
Kirkman didn't say if it would occur in the upcoming eighth season of The Walking Dead , which premieres on October 22 at 9 p.m. And inspiration struck for him Saturday night at Madison Square Garden during the New York Comic Con Walking Dead panel.

The bond has tumbled by more than 25 cents on the dollar since Hurricane Maria devastated the USA territory last month.

"Sir, it's on tape, you're being criticized because people are seeing. they're not making it up, you're not a cartoon there. We spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico and that's fine, we saved a lot of lives".

Colbert then showed footage of a press conference in San Juan, when Trump said that Puerto Rico's weather is "second to none", expect for the hurricanes, "and you really got hit".

Before his visit on Tuesday, Trump famously feuded with Yulín Cruz on Twitter when she criticized the federal response to hurricane victims in the US territory in a press conference and on CNN.

Cruz also lashed out against Trump's act of tossing paper towels at the hurricane victims, calling it 'terrible and abominable'.

According to census data taken before the storm hit Puerto Rico, unemployment on the island was about 11 percent, while the poverty rate stood at 45 percent.

Cruz, who exchanged a war of words with Trump over the weekend about the federal response to help the island recover, called Trump the "miscommunicator-in-chief" when she spoke to MSNBC on Tuesday.
