"But we're sending people to help and it's getting better on a daily basis", said Trump. Join us in a conversation about world events, the newsgathering process or whatever aspect of the news universe you find interesting or important.

SNL's cold open referred to the continued criticism of the Trump administration for failing to respond adequately and effectively to to the destruction in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria, particularly in comparison to the quick response it offered after Florida, Texas and Louisiana were hit by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Che took the president to task after reading Trump's tweet that said Cruz had been "told by the Democrats" that she "must be nasty to Trump".

President Donald Trump on Sunday strenuously defended U.S. efforts to bring relief to storm-battered Puerto Rico, even as one island official said Trump was trying to gloss over "things that are not going well".

Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, attacked by President Donald Trump on Twitter for her "poor leadership" in the wake of Hurricane Maria, graduated from Carnegie Mellon University, according to Channel 11 News' exchange partner The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

"I will do what I never thought I was going to do".

More rain this weekend may further delay efforts to deliver those supplies.


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

"We truly are dying here".

President Trump's response to the unfolding humanitarian disaster in Puerto Rico was desperately inadequate (and that's putting it generously) until Saturday, when it became downright shameful.

Trump is scheduled to visit the island on Tuesday. "10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job (sic)", Trump added in a series of tweets.

Cruz on Friday pushed back on Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke's characterization of recovery efforts in Puerto Rico as a "good news story".

"Maybe from where she's standing it's a good news story". "You know, I actually love football".

Later on in the show, Michael Che would also roast the president for his response to the situation in Puerto Rico.
