FEMA: Corps of Engineers to rebuild Puerto Rico's infrastructure

President Donald Trump tweeted about Puerto Rico saying'The electric power grid in Puerto Rico is totally shot

"With that same fire and fury to save the people of Puerto Rico from what is going to be a disaster here in this island".

The category four storm has destroyed the island's rickety electricity grid and knocked out basic communications. "It's very important and these are some of the essentials I plan to give to the people of Puerto Rico as soon as possible".

Trump's hands-off stance towards the devastated island's effort to recover from Hurricane Maria has some questioning whether his distance from his city's Puerto Rican community explains why he's seemed more concerned about protests by National Football League players than the island's desperate needs.

Fonsi's hit single "Despacito", which features Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee, has been viewed more than 3.8 billion times on YouTube. "They are being told to call a particular number but that number is not working", Del Valle told The Daily Caller Friday.

Market insiders are already discussing the possibility of bond holders having to revise agreements. Distributing those goods to the people who need them is the other part of the problem, as damage to the trucking infrastructure and roads has also hampered relief efforts.

"I have gotten in contact with some big names in Puerto Rico, for example Luis Fonsi, trying to decide what other things we can do to raise funds, trying to discuss different projects to continue to help Puerto Rico in any way we can", Puig, who turned 24 on Wednesday, told CNN.

However, a Diaz spokesman said the relationship between the billionaire and the borough president soured because of comments Trump made insulting Mexicans when he announced his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination.

Gutiérrez, who represents many Puerto Rican constituents in Chicago, arrived on the island Friday.

"[Trump should] order the NORTHCOM commander to be on scene". Cruz responded, "This is a people-are-dying story". "And this is not a response that's demonstrative of our power and our wealth".

"We've invaded small countries faster than we've been helping American citizens in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands". "The Trump Organization is one of our employers, it employs a large number of Puerto Rican workers". Rubio acknowledged FEMA's role in providing federal assistance to local governments, but said the Defense Department is the "only entity capable of executing a recovery effort of this scale and complexity".

Democratic lawmakers also blasted Trump's tweets early Saturday attacking the mayor of San Juan.

"The federal response has been a disaster", said legislator Jose Enrique Melendez, a member of Governor Ricardo Rossello's New Progressive Party.

"We are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency", Cruz said at a news conference, her voice breaking with rage. A week after Maria, they're operating on just emergency generator power, struggling to provide care at a time when it's needed most. FEMA had promised to deliver 1.7 million meals and 2 1/2 million liters of water to the island, he said.

Stu Loeser, who served as a longtime press secretary to former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, didn'tdispute Trump's insistence that he knows "many people" from Puerto Rico-but he did question the relevance of that statement.
