On Friday, House Speaker Paul Ryan led a bipartisan delegation on a visit to Puerto Rico. Hurricane Maria ripped part of the roof away when it slammed into Yabucoa, Puerto Rico last month. Cruz has had to repeatedly insist Puerto Rico is facing a humanitarian crisis in light of Trump understating the gravity of suffering facing the islanders. They spoke in an October 13 AFL-CIO-arranged conference call.

Hernan Morales, 52, lives in Yabucoa and says he was disgusted by the President's words, which he says sounded like a threat that federal relief work would be cut off before the work is done.

Democrats said Trump's tweets were deplorable, given that the 3 million-plus U.S. citizens on Puerto Rico are confronting the kind of hardships that would draw howls of outrage if they affected a state. "In my opinion, the death toll is really low", he said.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders praised the House action Thursday night and promised the administration "will continue to work with Congress to provide the resources necessary to recover and rebuild from the hurricanes" and the wildfires in California. He has promised that the island will get what it needs.

"And there has been a negative response" from Washington, he added.

Eventually, she was able to leave with her aunt, uncle and mother on a relief flight for the elderly and people with medical needs to Fort Lauderdale before heading to Virginia.

"You are incapable of fulfilling the moral imperative to help the people of PR. Shame on you!" she said.

"Your comments about Puerto Rico are unbecoming of a Commander in Chief they seem more to come from a 'Hater in Chief, '" Cruz tweeted.

Union members unload relief supplies in Puerto Rico. Three weeks after the storm wiped out the island's power grid, only 17 percent of people have electricity and 64 percent have drinking water. Scientists believe one out of eight monkeys possess the same SHANK3 gene seen in about 1 percent of autistic humans.

The powerful tropical cyclone made landfall in Puerto Rico on September 21, 2017, with winds of 155 mph (250 km/h), becoming the strongest to hit the territory since the 1928 San Felipe hurricane, as well as the most intense hurricane to hit the territory in recorded history. "They're the reason we're here".

"We had nurses, doctors, engineers, truck drivers". That's a long-term project, unfortunately.
