Kim Kardashian Blasts Donald Trump Following His Message to Puerto Rico

Trump says "they want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort".

"We are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency", she said at a Friday news conference.

"I don't know what world Trump is living in".

Trump's tweets slamming the mayor came one day after Cruz issued an emotional plea for help, saying people are dying on the American territory and partially blaming burdensome bureaucracy for holding such efforts back.

Trump said the media reporting from Puerto Rico were "doing their best to take the spirit away from our soldiers and first R's".

Since Hurricane Maria's landfall, FEMA delivered more than 1.5 million meals and 1.1 million litres of water to the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, as of September 25th.

The president is responding by citing what he calls "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".

Cruz lived on the US mainland for more than a decade, attending school at Boston University and Carnegie Mellon University, before getting involved in politics in Puerto Rico.

This is after accusing the San Juan mayor of poor leadership and being unable to get workers to help the USA territory recover.

Not that Mourinho wished to be seen to be issuing Martinez with instructions. "It is exciting times here and I want to be part of that success", he said.

Later on Saturday evening, Trump tweeted out a video featuring footage of USA troops assisting Puerto Ricans, overlaid with an audio clip of Rossello praising the Trump administration's response to the natural disaster.

Maria, the most powerful storm to strike Puerto Rico in almost 90 years, has destroyed roads, making it hard to deliver aid and move the heavy equipment needed to fix damaged infrastructure across the island.

The White House has said more than 10,000 federal workers have been sent to the US territory to aid the recovery.

Mr Trump went on to say that there are "10,000 federal workers now on (the) island doing a fantastic job" and an "amazing job".

He has also claimed that the island's governor Ricardo Rossello has praised the Trump administration's response.

"We're finding success in some areas, and in some areas we see setbacks" he said, "but we are making progress, in my opinion".

Blumenthal adds the temporary suspension of the Jones Act, which requires goods shipped between points in the United States to be carried by US built and operated boats, does not go far enough.

Yulín Cruz countered in an interview on MSNBC that the only goal right now is to save lives, adding that she "has no time for distractions".

With his island still in desperate need of financial and infrastructure aid, the governor faces a balancing act in remaining on good terms with Trump, even as many of his constituents oppose him.
