Donald Trump defends Puerto Rico effort, but his tweets draw new criticism

And Senator Bernie Sanders, a Democrat, told CNN: "Speaking of his fancy golf club, playing golf with his billionaire friends, attacking the mayor of San Juan, who is struggling to bring electricity to the island, food to the island, water to the island, gas to the island, that is just - it is unspeakable".

"After President Trump was criticized for a awful response to Hurricane Maria", said Colin Jost, "this morning he finally gave the people of Puerto Rico what they needed most: a bunch of tweets straight-up calling them lazy".

Cruz, played by Melissa Villasenor, begged for help sooner, but "Trump" admonished her, "You should have paid your bills". "If I'm doing a film [a Lamborghini biopic opposite Antonio Banderas] in Rome in the fall, you can bet I'm going to be on a satellite from Rome doing Trump". "I am begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying", Cruz said Friday. Cruz noted that Puerto Rico could possibly be without power for up to eight months.

"In the face of pointed criticism from the mayor and other Puerto Rican officials, Trump unleashed a series of tweets Saturday morning, saying ".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. Conditions are not favorable for development into a tropical storm, but locally heavy rainfall is expected over the Leeward Islands, including Dominica; the U.S. Virgin Islands; and Puerto Rico. They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort.

But on Saturday, Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) officials reported that a third of the island's telecommunications network had been restored, and some 765 gas stations - well over half - had fuel, though it was not clear how much.

Villaseñor promptly informs him that Puerto Rico is a US territory.

"We have done a great job with the nearly impossible situation in Puerto Rico".

The mayor retorted: "This is, damn it, this is not a good news story".

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

"I don't know what world Trump is living in" the animated Vermont senator continued.
