Celebs Slam Trump for His Response to San Juan Mayor's Plea

Mountain of vital supplies stuck in San Juan Trump Defends Response to 'Historic' Puerto Rico Storm Damage

Mr Trump has pledged to spare no effort to help the USA territory recover in the aftermath of the hurricane, and also tweeted that military personnel and first responders had done "an unbelievable job" despite having "no electric, roads, phones etc".

Trump claimed Cruz was attacking him for partisan reasons. "We are dying here". "This is a point where we can not look at small differences, we can not establish differences based on politics". The president also frequently points out that Puerto Rico is an island, which complicates recovery efforts.

She also criticized Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke for referring to the U.S. response to the struggling Puerto Rico as a "good news story".

Cruz said that she was done being polite and politically correct.

Michael Che, who co-hosts "Weekend Update", blasted Trump over a series of tweets he sent on Saturday criticizing Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Right off the bat, Cruz addresses the theory Trump floated about her being ordered by Democrats to say mean things about the president. Fat Joe and Pitbull have both contributed to relief efforts.

Cruz, played by Melissa Villasenor, begged for help sooner, but "Trump" admonished her, "You should have paid your bills. All buildings now inspected for safety", wrote Trump, who will head to Puerto Rico on Tuesday to survey hurricane damage.

Many were appalled by Trump's incredible lack of empathy and concern for the population of Puerto Rico - and Hollywood was certainly no different. She said thousands of people are without food and water, and people who require medical care are going without treatment, the Tribune-Review reported. It's not Cruz's fault Trump keeps saying everything on the island is fine every time a camera gets shoved in his face.

"This isn't that complicated, man, it's hurricane relief".

"The mayor is living on a cot", Honore said.

VILLASENOR: Mr. President, that's not good enough. "I do reiterate that the only way for this to work is for us to have collaboration", said Rosselló. "We can't establish differences based on politics".

His comments prompted many on social media to express anger over his administration's handling of the relief efforts, with many pointing to how numerous USA territory's 3.4 million residents remain without electricity, drinking water and telephone communication.
