FEMA Administrator Brock Long ripped San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz for her attacks on the agency Sunday, saying "we filtered out the mayor a long time ago" and he didn't have time for "political noise". The trip comes days after Trump visited Puerto Rico and praised relief efforts without mentioning the criticism that the federal response has drawn.

22News was at Barnes Regional Airport, where a rescue mission brought six people from Puerto Rico to be reunited with their friends and family.

He said Congress can and he expects will put pressure on the president to do more, through letters, committee hearings "and potentially policy over the next few weeks, to force the administration's hand". "So don't tell me that I can't get gas from Venezuela, but the U.S. can sell CITGO in the United States of America", she continued.

Maria Quesada has a brother, who is a doctor in Puerto Rico. About 40 soldiers with the Third Expeditionary Sustainment Command are in San Juan, Puerto Rico. "We are going to have a fight".

Trump's first public response to the devastation in the United States territory came five days after Hurricane Maria hit, in a series of tweets in which he focused on Puerto Rico's weak infrastructure and economy.

As of Friday, about 90 percent of Puerto Rico is still without power, while the death toll has climbed to 36 since Hurricane Maria made landfall on September 20.


Pence is touring hurricane damage in Puerto Rico after spending time in the U.S. Virgin Islands on Friday.

The Trump administration continues to follow the playbook it has used since moving into the White House - delete or otherwise block easy access to unflattering information on government websites.

This action by the SUNY Board of Trustees aligns with Governor Cuomo's continued leadership in providing relief and recovery assistance to those impacted by Hurricanes Maria and Irma.

At the end of Pence's visit, Plaskett took to social media to remind Americans of that very fact.

"And unfortunately, some of us are beginning to think that maybe it's because the U.S. Virgin Islands is a primarily black territory that we're not hearing anything in the news", Plaskett added.
