Puerto Rico weighing on federal budget

Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands need all of the help that they can get. "I think they finally understood".

"He arrives with a smile on his face, makes fun of the situation, shows no empathy, lies and lies on camera as he does 24-7".

But Colbert really got going when talking about Trump's decision to start tossing paper towels into the crowd at one point.

Around 3.4 million people live on the United States territory which was already in recession before the hurricane hit the island.

The president also didn't steer away from recent controversies. "Thank you for being here, it's so good to see you", one man told the president in Spanish.

President Trump visited the island Tuesday to inspect the damage and oversee some of the recovery efforts.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said that makes a tough assignment for his defensive coaches with Mariota and Cassel so different. If you're a pocket passer, you've got a chance to be a quarterback". "I kind of worry about me and kind of go from there".

The hurricane knocked out almost all of Puerto Rico's electrical grid and most of its cellular service. They shook hands at the airport during Trump's brief visit to the island on Tuesday, but he did not call on Cruz for remarks as he met with other federal and local officials. He minimized our suffering here by saying Katrina was a "real" disaster, sort of implying that this was not a real disaster because not many people have died here.

"I've never said a negative word about him", Cruz said. Officials said aid was slow moving and poorly organized.

Almost two weeks after Hurricane Maria thrashed through Puerto Rico, a USA territory located in the northeast Caribbean Sea, news reports said that much of the island remains short of food and without access to electric power or drinking water.

President Donald Trump's much-anticipated visit to Puerto Rico on Tuesday became easy fodder for memes and internet jokes. "Well you know what, they're dying".

Behar noted that moment interested her the most. "That's on him", Konyndyk wrote.

"We have delivered food and water, and it hasn't gotten to some people", he said. More than 30 deaths on the island have been attributed to the hurricane, which also knocked out Puerto Rico's entire power grid and left many of its 3.4 million residents without potable water. In fact, during the interview, when asked about how Puerto Rico is now faring, she started with this aid from individual entities, only mentioning FEMA's response as an add-on.
