Puerto Rico put budget 'out of whack' but lives saved

Hours after President Donald Trump arrived in Puerto Rico Tuesday to survey the damage wrought by Hurricane Maria and toss paper towels into a crowd, dozens of protesters, including City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, gathered one block from Trump Tower in Manhattan, demanding that his administration do more.

Cruz wore a shirt that said "HELP US WE ARE DYING" Friday, in a CNN interview with Anderson Cooper.

Critics of Trump first started embracing the "nasty" moniker in 2016, when as the Republican presidential nominee he called Democratic rival Hillary Clinton a "nasty woman" during a presidential debate.

On Wednesday, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, Mick Mulvaney, contradicted President Trump's comments about wiping out Puerto Rico's billions-dollar debt amid the catastrophic aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

"When someone is bothered by someone claiming lack of drinking water, lack of medicine for the sick and lack of food for the hungry, that person has problems too deep to be explained in an interview", Cruz told Jorge Ramos, as per Newsweek's translation. "I would hope that the president of the United States stops spouting out comments that really hurt the people of Puerto Rico". "You're at a disaster site, you're not working the floor of your casino", Colbert said.

Trump visited a church in Guaynabo where he distributed supplies to hurricane victims, including rolls of paper towels.

He departed to rejoin Mourinho under the pristine spotlights of Real Madrid to add a La Liga title to his name in 2012. Prosecutors had argued for a 12-month sentence and a larger fine of €300,000.

The federal government lacks the authority to simply do away with Puerto Rico's staggering $74 billion debt, much of which is tied up in a court-supervised restructuring process after the territory sought a form of bankruptcy protection previous year.

Her top had nothing to do with the Janet Jackson 1986 song but with our president, Donald J. Trump. "And that's fine. We've saved a lot of lives", he told a gathering. "But we also, coordinating with the people in Puerto Rico, have to make sure that they have a voice in whatever reconstruction happens".

The poll was conducted before Trump on Tuesday made his first trip to Puerto Rico, an island 1,000 miles from the mainland, after Hurricane Maria roared ashore September 20 and knocked out all power.

Pence took in damage wrought by Maria and delivered a message of comfort from his boss, the president: "We will be with you every day until the Virgin Islands comes all the way back".

As people in towns across the island of nearly 3.5 million American citizens sat in the dark without electronic communication, fuel, cash, safe drinking water or medical treatment, Trump talked of how "very proud" Puerto Rico should be that its hurricane death toll was just 16, compared with "thousands" (actually, 1833) from the "real catastrophe" of Hurricane Katrina, which hit New Orleans in 2005. "Everybody around this table and everybody watching can really be very proud of what's taken place in Puerto Rico". Apparently, her current strategy for disaster relief is to blame Trump so she can later campaign on the lie that Puerto Rico was abandoned by the world. "[Trump] said the Puerto Ricans just want everything done for them".
