Donald Trump waives restrictions on aid to hurricane-hit Puerto Rico

Workers unload shipping containers from a Crowley Maritime barge at the port in San Juan Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria ravaged the island

The president was at his New Jersey golf club over the weekend and attended an global golf competition near New York City before returning to the White House on Sunday. "Things are not good there".

Someone will say, "Right this way, sir".

Following requests from Puerto Rico's governor, Trump on Thursday authorized that shipping restrictions, via the Jones Act, be waived immediately for the island over the next 10 days.

"Will hopefully be able to stop at the U.S. Virgin Islands (people working hard)".

Long was rougher on Cruz when he appeared earlier on Fox News. "Maybe you can die, too", said church member Judith Cruz.

Ohio's Republican governor John Kasich, who challenged Mr Trump for the Republican nomination past year, also voiced criticism of the President's comments.

The president plans to visit Puerto Rico on Tuesday. "So help us", Cruz said.

In a speech Friday, President Trump said there's a "massive federal mobilization" underway to make sure supplies are transported to where they're needed most. The problem is that the Trump administration won't allow them to do their jobs.

But to Senator Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent, Trump's tweets were "unspeakable".

The dead included 11 men, eight women and a child, according to sub-inspector Ratnakar Adsul from Mumbai's railway police. Nirmal, who works with a chartered accountancy firm, said due to unexpected rain people waited on the FOB.

Trump, who spent the weekend at his golf resort in Bedminster, N.J., said his administration is making a difference in Puerto Rico. "And I don't know what world Trump is living in".

In remarks to the National Association of Manufacturers in Washington, Trump also defended his administration's response to the crisis in Puerto Rico.

Trump is out of it, and all he knows that the Hispanics in Puerto Rico need help, and he has no interest in giving it to them.

"It's a disgraceful job", said Gutierrez, who has family in the U.S. territory.

"You see the devastation in the pictures but what they've told me is that it's not just the pictures, it's literally everywhere you go, everything you see.that you've known your entire life is now ruined", she said.

"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. She also said residents need to focus on saving lives and "cannot be distracted by anything else".

"The people who are the best in this are the USA military".

Trump has been under fire over the federal government's response to the situation in Puerto Rico in the wake of Maria, the tenth-most intense Atlantic hurricane on record, the worst to strike Dominica in its recorded history, and the strongest in Puerto Rico since 1928.

"People are now starting to recognize the awesome work that has been done by FEMA and our great Military".
