Trump lifts foreign shipping restrictions for storm-hit Puerto Rico

Trump lifts foreign shipping restrictions for storm-hit Puerto Rico

Trump, in a tweet earlier this week, first linked the expense of the recovery effort with Puerto Rico's inability to repay more than $70 billion in debt owed to Wall Street.

During his tweet attacks this morning, Trump called NBC and CNN "fake news" for reporting Cruz's cries for more aid.

"We have done a great job with the nearly impossible situation in Puerto Rico".

More than half of Puerto Rico's 3.4 million people lack access to drinking water 11 days after Hurricane Maria hit the U.S. territory, and 95 percent remain without power, according to the U.S. Defense Department.

Trump is scheduled to visit Puerto Rico on Tuesday and said on Saturday he would visit with the first lady and hopefully be able to stop at the US Virgin Islands, which have also been battered. What he have time for is being laser focused on helping the people of Puerto Rico.

Taking "unhinged" to new levels, Raw Story, looking to drive racial discord, accused Trump of calling the San Juan mayor "nasty" and labeling Puerto Rican workers as lazy.

"Maybe from where she's standing it's a good news story", Cruz said.

Te Maire Martin managed a solitary try for the Cowboys in response, but it was one-way traffic in Sydney's west. Right now no half in the world takes the ball to the line and commands as much respect as Michael Morgan does.

Pressed on the tweet, the governor said the president's words were not aimed at Puerto Rican citizens.

"I am very satisfied", Duke said. The latter recently made several public pleas for help while lambasting the federal government's slow response on Friday, thereby sending the vacationing president into a golf-fueled Twitter frenzy Saturday morning. He has repeatedly othered the people of Puerto Rico in his statements.

In a series of tweets on Saturday, President Donald Trump blasted the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, for her criticism of the federal government's response to Hurricane Maria.

Lin-Manuel Miranda has also called out Trump for his attack on Cruz.

But Cruz tells ABC's "This Week" that "there's only one goal, and it's saving lives".

After going days without mentioning Puerto Rico following Maria, however, administration officials have attempted to play catchup, holding numerous press conferences to describe their relief efforts; Trump now manages to get in a mention of Puerto Rico at almost every public event.
