Last week, Cruz criticized the federal response in Puerto Rico and Trump lashed out on Twitter by questioning Cruz's leadership. Power was lost in the storm and all means of communication were down, so the rapper sent his private plane to the island to transport cancer patients receiving treatment to the states.
Cruz wore a black T-shirt during her television appearance that featured only one word: NASTY. The revised death toll came right after President Donald Trump's visit to the U.S. territory. UPS has delivered more than 100,000 water bottles that were donated by New Yorkers from across the state and UNICEF USA will be delivering emergency supply kits that will provide 60,000 people with basic hygiene supplies, including water purification tablets, water buckets, soap, toothpaste, detergent, sanitary pads and more, Cuomo said.
"I am grateful the military is helping".
She has no electricity, water or cell service at home.
"Number one, what I said to the president is that this is about saving lives, this is not about politics", Cruz stated (translation).
Trump planned to meet with storm survivors and first responders and assess the damage to Puerto Rico, press secretary Sarah Sanders said.
President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump depart the White House for a day trip to Puerto Rico. He said he has been inundated with enquiries since the hurricane hit.
Still, some Puerto Ricans feel the debt problem needs to take a backseat for the moment. About 70% of supermarkets and 36% of all ATMs are open. The reported cases are located in San Juan, Aguadilla, Canóvanas, Villalba, Vega Alta, Caguas and Moca. "There was no exchange with anybody, with none of the mayors", she said.
Trump, who made the comments after touring the island to see Maria's wreckage, does not exert direct control over Puerto Rico's debt restructuring. "They don't have medical resources". Sepulveda has waited two times for eight hours in line at gas stations. Adding that the news has "been witness to everything we are saying". Is that your president?
It's not just musicians who have pulled together for the victims.
