Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, he praised his administration's response to Maria. FEMA's site left up more heartening numbers - most grocery stores open and all federally maintained ports and airports and post offices functioning.

In a statement provided to NBC Friday, FEMA Director of Public Affairs William Booher said the information about power and water would return to their site. Trump misstated Maria as a Category 5 hurricane; it was Category 4 when it hit Puerto Rico.

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 past year. But the main problem now is distribution.

The Health and Human Services Department says federal medical teams with their own equipment and supplies have been sent to help provide care at Centro Medico, a major trauma center in San Juan.

He told officials that they should be "very proud" that the death toll from the storm was so low, unlike the deaths seen in "a real catastrophe, like (2005's Hurricane) Katrina".

Two in 10 whites, 4 in 10 Hispanics and almost 6 in 10 African-Americans disapprove of the president's response in US states. The hurricane killed over 1,800 people and caused about $108 billion in damages.

Nearly 70 percent of cell towers remained out in the U.S. Virgin Islands, with little progress made over the last week.

As for Maria, Sanchez said: "It was a whipping that we received".

A Rasmussen Reports poll conducted in the midst of the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Maria revealed the president now has a 45 percent approval rating, up from two weeks ago, with 28 percent of those people strongly approving of his performance, while 54 percent disapprove. If you recall, Cruz took to national TV begging for more aid from the United States in wake of Hurricane Maria. He called briefings and meetings and insisted that helping Puerto Ricans was a top priority.

The case is In re Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, 17-03283, U.S. District Court, District of Puerto Rico (San Juan). "I am mad as hell because my people's lives are at stake". "Just gone", he said. Sadly, later in the day, Puerto Rico's governor had to update the number of dead so far to 34. They hugged and then the vice president walked to another table.

"Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help".

She went on to say that she gets along with P.R. governor Ricardo Rosselló, who is a "tireless collaborator", even though the two share different visions about life.
