We Cannot Help Puerto Rico 'Forever!'

Trump hints at leaving still-suffering Puerto Rico. Has he seen these numbers?

Significant relief efforts remain underway in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, totaling over $1.4 billion this year in disaster recovery money, plus another $1.2 billion this year after Hurricane Matthew last year.

Cruz's comments were likely in response to early morning tweets Thursday from the president, where he said Congress needs to act quickly to provide relief because "FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been incredible (under the most hard circumstances) in P.R. forever!"

Three weeks since Maria made landfall, much of Puerto Rico, an island of 3.4 million people, remains without power.

The House is on track to back Trump's request for billions more in disaster aid, $16 billion to pay flood insurance claims and emergency funding to help the cash-strapped government of Puerto Rico stay afloat.

Addressing the president directly in a statement issued in response to the tweets, Cruz declared, "Mr. President, you seem to want to disregard the moral imperative that your administration has been unable to fulfill".

Donald Trump warned on Thursday (Oct 12) that his willingness to help hurricane-battered Puerto Rico was not unlimited, prompting a furious backlash with the major of San Juan branding the U.S. president a "Hater in Chief".

"I ask every American that has love, and not hate in their hearts, to stand with Puerto Rico and let this president know we WILL NOT BE LEFT TO DIE". "Puerto Rico se levanta!"

House passes aid bill; Trump goes on attack

Earlier this week, Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló raised the death toll from the storm to 43.

Lawmakers are expected to approve the bipartisan measure that will also provide relief to the storm-struck areas of Florida, Texas, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and leaders of both major parties have lauded the bill.

60 percent of wastewater treatment plants are working on generator power.

Officials in Puerto Rico have said it could take $5 billion to get the island's electrical infrastructure up and running again.

"They did not come for a photo op or to throw paper towels and insults at us", she said, referring to a widely-criticized incident in which Trump threw the basic good at a crowd of Puerto Ricans. He added, "We've saved a lot of lives". As Tom Gjelten reported Wednesday night, the island has 78 mayors - and, he added, "They're said to be accustomed to doing their business without interference from above".

Some of those mayors have called for all supplies to go through them, so they can distribute the aid.

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, testifying before the House financial services committee, said that he has "no intention" of abandoning recovery efforts in Puerto Rico.
