San Juan Mayor Calls Trump 'Hater In Chief' Over Puerto Rico Tweets

San Juan Mayor Calls Trump 'Hater In Chief' Over Puerto Rico Tweets

"A total lack of accountability say the Governor". Electric and all infrastructure was disaster before hurricanes. "We can not keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been awesome (under the most hard circumstances) in P.R. forever!"

Hours after that message was posted, Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said via Twitter, "The U.S. citizens in Puerto Rico are requesting the support that any of our fellow citizens would receive across our Nation".

The White House was quick to go into damage control, insisting the president does not intend to pull emergency responders from Puerto Rico.

President Donald Trump is criticizing hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico and says the government can't keep federal aid there "forever".

President Trump suggested again on Thursday that Puerto Rico bore some of the blame for its current crisis following twin hurricanes, and that there were limits to how long he would keep troops and federal emergency workers on the island to help. "We can not be distracted by anything else".

The mayor tweeted that Trump is "incapable of fulfilling the moral imperative to help the people of PR. Shame on you!" It has killed at least 45 people, and about 85 percent of Puerto Rico residents still lack electricity.

To clarify, that's the president of the United States (1) doubling down on his claim that, really, the commonwealth brought this on itself; (2) suggesting that, despite the fact that almost 90 percent of people are still without power and some may be drinking from Superfund sites because they don't have clean water, the federal government is about ready to wash its hands of the situation; and (3) implying that the people of Puerto Rico are pulling a fast one on him, trying to take advantage to extract more aid than they really need. "Puerto Rico se levanta!"

Trump criticises Puerto Rico, saying hurricane aid can not go on 'forever'
President Trump on Thursday warned that this administration's response to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico can not last "forever". Dozens of people rallied in NY last week to demand the Donald Trump administration do more to help Puerto Rico.

Trump's remarks seemed a direct contradiction to the message coming from the top administration officials leading the recovery effort in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Puerto Rico has been reeling since Hurricane Maria struck three weeks ago.

FEMA says there are now some 19,000 federal civilian personnel and military service members - including more than 1,400 FEMA personnel - working in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. An additional $577 million would pay for western firefighting efforts.

Hospitals throughout the island have been running low on medicine and fuel, officials said.

When he visited Puerto Rico last week, Trump said, "Now I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you've thrown our budget a little out of whack, because we've spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico, and that's fine".

"Successful recoveries do not last forever", she added.

Pelosi emphasized that the relief effort should not be dictated by deadlines, but by necessity. It wasn't immediately clear what prompted the president's reference to her on Twitter.
