Puerto Rico Teacher Eager To Get Back To School After Hurricane Maria

Additionally, he accused Cruz of "poor leadership" and wrote that "they want everything to be done for them".

US President Donald Trump on Saturday attacked a Puerto Rican mayor over her "poor leadership ability" after she criticised the pace of relief efforts in the wake of devastating Hurricane Maria. "When you're drinking from a creek, it's not a good news story". "There's some elderly on board, there's some people with medical conditions that require attention and have been given priority", Izquierdo said. "It's a life or death story".

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 ..."

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.

"We are grateful that our cries for justice were heard and that the president did the right thing and stood on the right side of history", San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz said on CNN after the waiver was announced. "10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job", he continued in a series of tweets.

"The people in Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands, I know, are suffering", Ms Duke told a press conference with Governor Ricardo Rossello.

United States military and emergency relief teams ramped up their aid efforts for Puerto Rico on Friday amid growing criticism of the response to the hurricanes which ripped through the Caribbean island.

The death toll now stands at 16.

After hearing Duke's comments, Cruz told CNN it was "irresponsible" to spin the island's devastation so positively.

The decision follows yesterday's request from the governor of Puerto Rico and the Secretary of Defense's determination that a waiver is in the interest of national defense.

The move comes after the Trump administration faces growing criticism for denying requests from members of Congress to issue the waiver.

Seven lawmakers led by Rep. Nydia Velazquez of NY had urged Trump to waive the restrictions for a year in order to speed delivery of critically needed supplies to devastated Puerto Rico's 3.4 million residents.

But in many cases, "on site" meant stored on pallets and in containers in sea - and at airports far from the towns where Puerto Ricans desperately lined up for fresh water and pre-made meals being distributed by federal officials.
