Trump tells Puerto Rico residents

Land destroyed by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico

"Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda did not mince words in his message to Donald Trump following the President's Saturday morning Twitter attacks on San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz. I am begging, begging anyone that can hear us, to save us from dying'.

Maria, the most powerful storm to strike Puerto Rico in almost 90 years, has killed at least 16 people on the island, according to the official death toll.

"The world will see we are treated not as second-class citizens, but as animals that can be disposed of", Cruz said of the treatment she felt Puerto Rico had received.

After the 10-day period, the waiver can be extended if needed, DHS spokesman David Lapan told CNN. "The fact is that Puerto Rico has been destroyed by two hurricanes".

FEMA Administrator Brock Long said on MSNBC Friday that progress is being made.

"We understand that they are down by as much as 70 percent on their police force", Fuentes said.

Another video sent from Rihanna, who was born and raised in Barbados, to the president saw San Juan's mayor crying over the "humanitarian crisis" in the country.

Gov. Larry Hogan is sending a 26-member unit of the Maryland National Guard to Puerto Rico to aid in the recovery from Hurricane Maria.

Late on Thursday, Ms Duke said: "This is a good news story, what's happening in Puerto Rico, in terms of ability to reach people and the limited number of deaths that have occurred in such a devastating storm". After much pressure, the White House also announced a 10-day waiver of the Jones Act, lifting the shipping restrictions into us ports, and thus allowing food and supplies to be brought into Puerto Rico.

Trump, who is expected to visit the island Tuesday with his wife Melania Trump, first wrote three tweets Saturday criticizing the "poor leadership" in Puerto Rico, saying local mayors "want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort".

Trump also praised the work of the first responders and harshly criticized the "Fake News Networks" that are "working overtime" to demoralize first responders and soldiers. "But I think it's going really well, considering".

Many in the territory remain desperate for necessities, most urgently water, long after Hurricane Maria tore a ruinous path through the island September 20. "There are people dying of hunger and thirst".
