Donald Trump defends Puerto Rico effort, but his tweets draw new criticism

Posted October 02, 2017

"Saturday Night Live" is back - and the iconic comedy show doesn't appear to be giving President Donald Trump a free pass anytime soon.

"You just did this very same thing for white people, twice".

President Donald Trump on Sunday renewed his attacks on "politically motivated ingrates" he claimed failed to recognize the United States' relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

"Maybe from where she's standing it's a good news story".

The strong, bipartisan response came after Trump issued a series of repugnant tweets on Saturday morning, taking direct shots at San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz and also attacking the people of Puerto Rico for wanting "everything to be done for them".

The opening sketch wasn't the only part of the premiere that hammered the President regarding Puerto Rico.

Roku to make $219m debut
Roku announced that it had generated revenue of just over $199.6 million during the six-month period ending on June 30. The 15.7 million shares were priced at United States dollars 14 each, the top of the USD 12-14 price range.

She was also reportedly very in love with her new boyfriend, that is why she decided that it is now time for her to have a baby. The rep stated that Jenner was already informed about the pregnancy some time ago.

Mayor Cruz did not take kindly to the response. "When you are drinking from a creek, it's not a good news story".

"I personally went to Salinas with seven National Guard trucks full of food and water", he said, conceding that "you can always find somebody that hasn't received resources, and I recognize that". It's like when anybody darker than your golf trousers has a problem, you're thinking: "How can I make this worse?" Or, as it was recently said on BuzzFeed, "Black Athletes Are Black People, And Black People Are Dying". It's a "life-or-death" story. Nearly half the island's population has been without drinking water, according to the U.S. Defense Department.

Cruz has been outspoken in asking for more federal aid to Puerto Rico.

The package includes a portable "tent city", which can house up to 150 people, giving them a place to sleep.

Donald Trump has lashed out at the mayor of San Juan and other officials in storm-ravaged Puerto Rico, criticising their claims of a slow USA response to the natural disaster which has imperilled the island's future. Rather than address Cruz, he took used this opportunity to thank the governor of Puerto Rico and applaud the first responders' hard work.
