San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz reacted with shock and anger to acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke on Friday, saying Puerto Rico's recovery is "not a good news story". She implored the president, who is set to visit the USA territory on Tuesday, to "make sure somebody is in charge that is up to the task of saving lives".
Trump, who spent the weekend at his Bedminster golf resort in New Jersey, accused Puerto Ricans via Twitter of wanting "everything to be done for them", even as criticism grew that federal relief efforts amid massive hurricane damage have fallen desperately short.
Trump himself brought it back into the news Saturday, with Twitter attacks on how the "Fake News Networks are working overtime in Puerto Rico doing their best to take the spirit away from our soldiers" and first responders.
While FEMA has said it has delivered millions of meals and liters of water, many Puerto Ricans have said the aid has been too little and has not made it way to large parts of the island.
"Hang on, my mission is way more hard than trying to get to one area", Long said on CNN, saying the agency had set up hubs around the island, and that Mayor Cruz needed to "get plugged in to what's going on" in the response. She's not doing that. "I mean, the mayor is reacting to a very chaotic situation in Puerto Rico".
Power is still out and water is scarce for numerous island's three million residents.
"I will continue to do whatever I need to do, say whatever I need to say, compliment the people I need to compliment, and call out the people that I need to call out", she added.
In histweets, Trump attempted to blame the island's continuing woes on Democrats, the media and local officials. She also said her complaints had resulted in more food and water being provided.
"Actually, I was asking for help", Yulin Cruz told MSNBC.
Cruz responded by saying she would do whatever she had to do to save lives on the island.
Trump, in a tweet earlier this week, first linked the expense of the recovery effort with Puerto Rico's inability to repay more than $70 billion in debt owed to Wall Street.
"We're getting commodities to Puerto Rico", said Long.
San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz is answering with her own tweets. "We got cereal, bread, and some things to make tacos because [it's] the only thing we can like do right now to eat", he said, adding they don't have much gas, and no power.
Mulvaney said some people were looking for reasons to snipe at the Trump administration and that the public should consider the administration's actions over words.
In June 2016, she spoke out against PROMESA, the United States law created under President Obama that mandated an oversight board to run Puerto Rico's finances, as it was unable to repay its debts and filed for a form of bankruptcy. "President Trump, anyone, help us!" she said.
