Trump relaxes barriers to Puerto Rico storm aid

President Donald Trump is touting his administration's disaster response in Puerto Rico, even as officials in the us territory warn that much more help will be needed to fend off mass hunger and disease on the hurricane-ravaged island.

"Out of gas, out of diesel, roofs off homes, no water, no electricity, so I am anticipating there will be a lot of people coming to cities around America", Walsh said. Critics say the law makes shipments to places such as Hawaii and Puerto Rico more expensive.

'The electrical grid and other infrastructure were already in very, very poor shape.

"Congress must immediately take up an appropriations bill to come to Puerto Rico & the US Virgin Islands' aid", Warren wrote.

It is a good sign Uber needs new drivers, unless they are replacing others who want to leave. Three years ago London was brought to a standstill by protesting taxi drivers.

His decision was "probably" more of a political one than an action to bring more aid to the island, Fugate said.

During an interview later Friday morning on MSNBC, Rosselló said he is grateful for the federal help, as well as assistance that's been provided by 17 states. She also said the death toll had been low for a storm the size of Hurricane Maria.

"We are grateful that our cries for justice were heard and that the president did the right thing and stood on the right side of history", San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz said on CNN after the waiver was announced. But under the Jones Act, foreign-originating goods must be dropped off in Jacksonville and then shipped to Puerto Rico via an exorbitantly expensive Jones-compliant vessel.

On Wednesday, Trump suggested again that he would not waive the restriction.

Because of this new law, women enrolled in Illinois Medicaid will no longer be barred from using their coverage for abortion. Conservatives, however, lined up to excoriate Rauner for signing the bill into law, calling him a flip-flopper at best.

North Carolina military also supported hurricane relief efforts in Texas and Florida. Pitbull has been using his private plane to evacuate cancer patients and transport them for treatment in the continental U.S.

President Trump promoted "Made in the USA" products on September 29 and said that his tax plan includes a "giant, beautiful, massive, the biggest ever in our country tax cut".

Trump is expected to travel to Puerto Rico to survey the damage and emergency response on Tuesday. "That's why I'm here to personally see and view and transmit what I'm seeing back to San Juan". "People are getting very anxious with the heat and the lack of easily accessible drinkable water".

In 2016, former President Barack Obama signed into law Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act (PROMESA), which in turn established a presidentially-appointed financial oversight board that took control of the island's finances.

Hopefully, I just pray, he is not hampered by any more problems and that will see him getting stronger and stronger. He's on the way up. "He is on the way up and he has only been stopped by a series of injuries", Wenger added.

Trump tweeted, "Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello just stated: 'The Administration and the President, every time we've spoken, they've delivered.The fact is that Puerto Rico has been destroyed by two hurricanes".
