Donald Trump stirs tempest before island visit

Gov. Malloy administration issues guidance to schools regarding displaced students from Puerto Rico

Despite being a virtual unknown for many, she cruised to a surprising win by securing the support of a coalition of left-leaning interests from the LGBTQ community to university students to financially powerful unions. She also said residents need to focus on saving lives and "cannot be distracted by anything else".

"I don't know what world Trump is living in", he said.

A drive is being held Sunday and Monday from 9 a.m.to 6 p.m.in Keene at Ingenuity Country Store. Trump wrote on Twitter.

"Outside of the fake news or politically motivated ingrates. people are now starting to recognize the awesome work" done by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the military, the president tweeted Sunday.

Puerto Rican Festival of Massachusetts President Edwin Alicea, whose father and other relatives are in Puerto Rico, said the situation on the island is deteriorating. "This is a people-are-dying story".

"We are dying here, and I can not fathom he thought that the greatest nation int he world can not figure out logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles long", Cruz said.

At least 16 people on the island have been reported killed and there was widespread damage to homes, roads and infrastructure.

The parking lots in front and behind of Star's barbershop on Midlothian Turnpike in Richmond operated Sunday as a drive-through for emergency supplies to send as hurricane relief to the beleaguered US territory in the Caribbean.

Cruz went on television Friday to plead for help and reject assertions by the Trump administration about how well it was responding.

He says that this visit, along with Marco Rubio's visit to Puerto Rico, proves that the government does indeed care about it's terriroty.

Perez Otero says he has been in constant contact with USA officials and is confident that they will provide the very best recovery efforts they can.

Sanders's comments come after Trump on Saturday criticized San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz for "poor leadership", and urged the island's citizens not to "believe the fake news".

"The president going makes a huge difference, and logistics didn't get in the way in the past", Schumer told Dickerson.

But politics, Mother Nature, and Trump's penchant for posting his infamous Twitter barbs intervened, and the positivity evaporated in a series of bruising confrontations and defeats.

Long was rougher on Cruz when he appeared earlier on Fox News. "The response from Congress. has been nearly as if Puerto Rico did not exist", said Jose Cruz, a political scientist at the University at Albany-State University of NY.

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. Every single day when you can't really believe what's going on, the next day it's something else even more insane and tragic. Eight lawmakers, many of them Latino, sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security, linking Puerto Rico's current crisis to larger problems with federal oversight.

Trump accused the mayor of acting on behalf of Democrats.

"We can choose to look at what the mayor spouts off or what other people spout off, but we can also choose to see what's actually being done, and that's what I would ask".

"If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying and you are killing us with the inefficiency and the bureaucracy", she said.
