Trump calls his Puerto Rico critics 'politically motivated ingrates'

Mr. Trump is at his golf club in New Jersey this weekend.

Major U.S. labor unions are organizing truck drivers to help with relief efforts in Puerto Rico as the island continues to grapple with the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria last week. "Outside of the Fake News or politically motivated ingrates, .people are now starting to recognize the awesome work that has been done by FEMA and our great Military", Trump wrote in two morning tweets.

He added: "All buildings now inspected for safety". The White House should take a page from the nation's mayors who have time and again banded together in times of crisis to send first responders and support our fellow Americans.

Later in the day, he traveled from his golf course to the Presidents Cup golf tournament.

Trump's tweets came after he faced mounting criticism of his jabs at the mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulîn Cruz.

At a news conference Saturday, Rossello wouldn't comment on Trump's tweets, saying he hadn't seen them and would not be drawn into a political fight.

According to Puerto Rico's governor, more than 50 percent of gas operators are now up and running, as well as most hospitals.

"I don't have time for that".

Puerto Ricans have been left to fend for themselves.

"It is unspeakable", Sen.

Teamsters spokesman Galen Munro told CNN that the union hopes to get more drivers on the ground next week.

President Trump on Friday.

"For some members of the class, the cause hit close to home", "It was harrowing to not know for about two or three days whether they were okay, I think that was the hardest from my end", said Vanelis Rivera. People in Puerto Rico are suffering one of the worst disasters in the history of that island.

"We want to help the residents of Puerto Rico".

Later on Saturday evening, Trump tweeted out a video featuring footage of United States troops assisting Puerto Ricans, overlaid with an audio clip of Rossello praising the Trump administration's response to the natural disaster.

After Duke called the Trump administration's response to Hurricane Maria a "good news story" Cruz said, "Dammit, this is not a good news story".

President Donald Trump says Washington is — in his words — "fully engaged in the disaster and the response and recovery effort".

"Neither will history. Neither will God".

FEMA administrator Brock Long offered a slightly more cautious assessment, telling ABC's "This Week" that "we've got a long way to go". "10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job".

"Start pushing materials down through the system", Bossie said.

Meanwhile, it didn't take my colleague AJ Vicens long to find a town in Puerto Rico entirely cut off from the help Bossert asserts is making such a difference on the island.
