Crisis in the Caribbean

"I know it takes a while, I know it takes a lot of planning", he said, "but I think it could have been quicker". I wasn't saying anything nasty about the president, but don't take my word for it. He said his agency has a list of about 40 drugs that it's concerned could be in short supply, 13 of which are made only in Puerto Rico.

The county is in $73 billion of debt but less than a quarter of that debt is owned by hedge funds.

Another video sent from Rihanna, who was born and raised in Barbados, to the president saw San Juan's mayor crying over the "humanitarian crisis" in the country. "It is meant to ensure we have enough fuel and commodities to support lifesaving efforts, respond to the storm, and restore critical services and critical infrastructure operations in the wake of these devastating storms", said Acting Secretary Duke.

The president offered a similar assessment speaking to reporters at the White House on Friday.

Authorities have reestablished radio communication in the capital San Juan and some surrounding areas. I'm not surprised by the show she is putting on'.

The US leader has pledged to spare no effort to help Puerto Rico recover from Maria's ruinous aftermath, and is set to visit the island early next week.

She clarified later, "It's good news that we have a unification of command where the governor, the federal response, and the people are all united toward saving lives and giving things to the people they need". "They want everything to be done for them".

The White House said Trump will make calls to several Puerto Rico officials, including Gov. Ricardo Rosselló, on Saturday afternoon.

In his tweets Saturday, Trump praised the military and first responders for "an wonderful job".

He then went on to criticize news coverage of the devastation from the category five hurricane. Not fair to FR or effort!'

"I respectfully disagree with President Trump and I am sure that he is not getting the data that we are seeing in the streets".

On Friday, Cruz had responded on CNN to the comments of Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke, who had said that the response to the disaster was a "good news story".

"Damn it, this is not a good-news story", Cruz told CNN.

Rihanna on Thursday shared an image with the president of the New York Daily News's September 27 front page which read, "No food, no water, no power, no medical care for the dying ... When you have to pull people down from their buildings - I'm sorry, but that really upsets and frustrates me".
