It's hurricane relief. These people need help.

The more light shed on the politically motivated criticism from San Juan Mayor Carmin Yulin Cruz, the more her complaints appear to be much ado about nothing. "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.

Cruz on Sunday posted twin tweets in Spanish and England saying, "The goal is one: saving lives".

Trump tweeted about San Juan's mayor, Carmen Yulín Cruz, criticizing her for "poor leadership ability", on September 29.

"The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump", he tweeted. "If I'm doing a film [a Lamborghini biopic opposite Antonio Banderas] in Rome in the fall, you can bet I'm going to be on a satellite from Rome doing Trump". Trump on Saturday blasted her and those in the territory, whom he said "want everything to be done for them". Cruz noted that Puerto Rico could possibly be without power for up to eight months.

Mr Trump is scheduled to spend an hour checking in by phone with Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator Brock Long, Puerto Rico's governor, Ricardo Rossello, and other local officials. "What did you make of President Trump tweeting that Puerto Ricans, quote, 'want everything to be done for them?'"

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". 10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job.

Che went on to address the matter of the flag as well: "It's hard to ask black people to respect the flag when we know that this country cares more about it than us". "When you're drinking from a creek, it's not a good news story", Cruz shot back.

"Maybe from where she's standing it's a good news story". He said 11 regional staging areas have been receiving food and water across the island and that telecommunication has been restored in several key municipalities, including San Juan.
