'Big decisions' needed on rebuilding Puerto Rico, Donald Trump says

In a series of tweets, Trump suggested that the mayor was being manipulated by Democrats to "be nasty to Trump", and he called on Cruz to have her local officials do more to help the recovery.

Singer Rihanna criticized President Donald Trump's response to Hurricane Maria's devastating impact on Puerto Rico in a tweet on Thursday. "We want them to be safe and sound and secure, and we'll be there every day until that happens", POTUS promised.

"I am begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying", Cruz said Friday.

"And I'm really sorry, but when you have people out there dying, literally".

Health Officials Urge Annual Influenza Vaccination for All
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention laid out guidelines for who should be vaccinated for the upcoming flu season. The World Health Organisation's advisory panel has concluded its bi-annual meeting on the Southern Hemisphere flu vaccine.

Trump previously made headlines when he described the logistical difficulties of helping Puerto Rico by saying it was "an island, surrounded by water, big water, ocean water".

On Thursday, Duke expressed nothing short of full confidence when she talked to reporters about Puerto Rico outside the White House.

The president's comments came the morning after Cruz begged the federal government to increase its support and aid to the USA territory, saying in a press conference Friday that "we are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency". "This is about lives being lost if things do not get done properly real quickly", she said.

Earlier this week, Mr Trump sent "America's hearts and prayers" to the people in Puerto Rico and the nearby US Virgin Islands, along with his confirmation he will visit both places next week.

A Labour spokesman later said the party would, in fact, review all PFI contracts and "if necessary" bring them back in-house. Asked whether the remarks gave those at the top of the party a lot of concern, he replied: "Yes, yes it has".

As though criticizing Mayor Cruz wasn't crass enough, Trump invoked the racist trope of lazy minorities hungry for government handouts just for good measure. But he warned that the U.S. Congress would need to help rebuild the island.

Hurricane Maria, the most powerful storm to hit Puerto Rico in almost 90 years, has killed at least 16 people on the island and more than 30 across the Caribbean. New Jersey emergency response personnel will spend at least six weeks in Puerto Rico and could stay longer if more help is needed.

Miranda responded in another tweet: "She has been working 24/7".

"This is a "people are dying" story, this is a life and death story, this is a truckload of stuff that can not be taken to people story", the mayor said on the verge of tears and sounding exhausted.

Kim Jong Un calls Trump 'dotard,' ramps up war of words
Mr Trump said the measure would also disrupt other trade avenues for North Korea in efforts to halt its nuclear weapons program. Late Wednesday, North Korea's foreign minister responded to the threat by comparing Trump's comments to a "barking dog".

"We have done an incredible job, considering there's absolutely nothing to work with", Trump said, adding that "the power grid is gone".
