  • Rubio urges Trump to put Pentagon in charge of recovery in Puerto Rico

"Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda did not mince words in his message to Donald Trump following the President's Saturday morning Twitter attacks on San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz.

"I have not received any help, and we ran out of food yesterday", Mari Olivo, a 27-year-old in Bayamon, told the Associated Press Thursday.

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.

Trump spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Mr Trump was responding to a request from Puerto Rico governor Ricardo Rossello, and that the waiver would go into effect immediately.

In a series of tweets, the president purported that unidentified Democrats had told the Puerto Rican official "you must be nasty to Trump".

"Damn it, this is not a good news story". In his remarks as he departed for New Jersey, the president cited as he has before the unique difficulties in Puerto Rico given both the poor condition of its infrastructure before the storm and the intensity of Maria.




The post follows others shared by the Diamonds hit-maker in recent days directly to the president, as she continues to try to raise awareness of the current crisis.

Gray says most of their windows are still boarded up because they want to save as much power as possible.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who urged Trump to waive the law, said shipping costs to Puerto Rico are approximately twice as much as other nearby islands that allow foreign ships to dock.

"I know it is really a good news story in terms of our ability to reach people and the limited number of deaths that have taken place in such a devastating hurricane". Cruz on Friday had criticized the Trump administration's response to the hurricane, saying, "I am begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying". 'This is a people-are- dying story. It's a life-or-death story'.

Thousands more Puerto Ricans have been getting water and rationed food as an aid bottleneck began to ease. This is, "there's a truckload of stuff that can not be taken to people" story.
