How San Juan's mayor failed her own citizens

His visit was deemed as "terrible and abominable PR stunt" by San Juan's Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, where the billionaire Republican told the islanders that they should be "very proud" that more people had not died in the storm.

Standing before a table of relief supplies, the president displayed a much softer demeanor than he did days earlier when he criticized the mayor of San Juan's "poor leadership ability" and lamented how the island's leaders "want everything done for them".

Ms Cruz wore the shirt during an interview in which she attacked the President for his visit to Puerto Rico after the USA territory was devastated by a hurricane. In the capital, San Juan, where most neighborhoods remain without power, pastry chef Rose Cisneros said her family is faring well but she worries about communities in the island's mountainous interior that are still struggling to access food and clean water. "What is really nasty is that anyone would turn their back on the Puerto Rican people".

"If you are a bondholder, you are surprised and you are no doubt wondering what he has in mind", Setser said.

"Sixteen dead - versus in the thousands", Trump said during a briefing with Puerto Rican officials adding that, while "every death is a horror", the devastation has not been a catastrophe on the same scale of Hurricane Katrina, which killed some 1,800 people in New Orleans in 2005.

The security guard allegedly responsible for the attack is believed to have died in hospital after the attack this morning. President Michel Temer moved to twitter and posted, "I immensely regret this tragedy involving children in Janauba".

He was also lobbed rolls of paper towels into a crowd at a church in what was seen as a odd and insensitive approach to hurricane relief.

He could order the U.S. Justice Department to defend the 2016 federal law that Puerto Rico is trying to use to slash its debt and about $49 billion in pension obligations.

Almost two weeks after the Puerto Rico storm, much of the countryside is still struggling to access such basic necessities as food, fresh water and cash.

Her top had nothing to do with the Janet Jackson 1986 song but with our president, Donald J. Trump.

President Trump on Tuesday raised the prospect of wiping out hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico's crushing debt load. Trump is also scheduled to speak with Gov, Kenneth Mapp of the Virgin Island, also damaged by Hurricane Maria.

Both sides have been solid on the defensive front this season, and we don't see too many goals in this fixture. Dele Alli and Jan Vertonghen are also in contention for a start after sitting that game out due to suspension.

Data from Media Cloud, which reviews internet news, showed there was far less media coverage of Hurricane Maria than of hurricanes Irma and Harvey, which hit the continental US, fivethirtyeight reported; specifically, there were fewer sentences written or spoken about the events in Puerto Rico than in Texas or Florida.

The White House budget office director said on Wednesday that the President "meant" that the island will have to "figure out a way to solve its debt problem".

"We've saved a lot of lives", he added.

Known deaths from Maria in Puerto Rico stand at 34, The Associated Press reported. "If people of Puerto Rico had power and could watch TV, they might differ".

In a statement on Tuesday, network provider AT&T Inc (T.N) praised the FCC efforts at rebuilding communications infrastructure.
