Since coming under criticism, the president has lashed out on social media. "We would like to give them a bottle of water and food immediately", he said. He says San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz was making a plea for help when she criticized Trump for not doing enough. "I am not going to be distracted by small comments, by politics, by petty issues". She said as many as seven people are dead after water and oxygen didn't get to them in time.

Trump thanked federal agencies "who are working so hard against bad odds" in Puerto Rico, and touted his visit to the island next week. Cruz says that "if he asks to meet with me, of course I would meet with him".

"I recognize the good heart that the FEMA people have, and they want to help", she said. They also will stop at the U.S. Virgin Islands, which were also hard-hit by Hurricane Maria.

"I just want to hug them", Berrios said.
