San Juan mayor: 'I don't give a damn' about Trump attacks

San Juan mayor: 'I don't give a damn' about Trump attacks

By official estimates, just under 12 percent of power is restored on the island.

The reason, according to Long: Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz's "political noise".

"We filtered out the mayor a long time ago", Long said on ABC's "This Week" when asked about a pair of early morning tweets from Cruz, in which she said she had unsuccessfully sought help from FEMA after the power failed at a major hospital.

Mayor Cruz said the federal government's response has been slow, inadequate, or downright nonexistent.

Several weeks after the September 20 Category 4 storm devastated the USA territory, only 11.7 percent of the island's electricity consumers have power, and 56.8 percent of Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority customers have potable water, according to FEMA's website tracking the federal response to Hurricane Maria.

In an interview with Mike Huckabee that aired on the Christian TV network Trinity Broadcasting, Trump justified his paper towel throwing stunt because the towels were "beautiful" and "soft". Very good towels. And I came in and there was a crowd of a lot of people.

He told Huckabee that Cruz "did a very poor job", adding that "She's not a capable person", he said. "In another sense, you feel you can do a good job".

Trump said the media should have blamed Cruz rather than criticizing his efforts.

"In one sense, you hate to see it", he told Huckabee. Afterwards, while Cruz said she hoped new channels of communication with the White House would "put in motion what is needed" to save lives, she also said Trump sometimes was more a "miscommunicator in chief" than a commander in chief. You're really helping people.

This past weekend, Cruz went after the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), claiming it has not responded to recent requests for help as Puerto Rico recovers from Hurricane Maria.
