10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job.

Bernie Sanders (I-VT) unleashed an attack on President Donald Trump, accusing him of racism in the way he is dealing with the humanitarian crisis in hurricane-battered Puerto Rico.

"But we're sending people to help and it's getting better on a daily basis", said Trump.

"People are now starting to recognize the wonderful work that has been done by FEMA and our great Military. We all have got to remember, the people of Puerto Rico are American citizens, entitled to the same help as the people of any other community in America".

More rain this weekend may further delay efforts to deliver those supplies.

"Trust me, I know things are, as the locals say, Despecito", he says in a painful conversation with Yulín Cruz, who's played by Melissa Villaseñor.

He added that he would encourage Cruz to come alongside Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello and other officials "who are focusing on continuing to make the steady progress that we are making in Puerto Rico".

The President plans to visit Puerto Rico on Tuesday.

Cruz on Sunday posted twin tweets in Spanish and England saying, "The goal is one: saving lives".

More than half of Puerto Rico's 3.4 million people lack access to drinking water 11 days after Hurricane Maria hit the U.S. territory, and 95 percent remain without power, according to the U.S. Defense Department.

Trump is now spending the weekend at his golf club in New Jersey and was slated to hold a series of phone calls on Saturday in regards to relief after Hurricane Maria.

The president asserted that Cruz was being influence by Democrats who were telling her to "be nasty to Trump".

"We are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency and the bureaucracy", Cruz said on Friday during a news conference.

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

San Juan's mayor also responded to Trump's comments, saying there's "no time for politics" in the recovery effort. "When you have to pull people down from their buildings - I'm sorry, but that really upsets and frustrates me".

Cruz said she wanted to "make sure somebody is in charge that is up to the task of saving lives", while the president asserted that USA officials and emergency personnel are working all-out against daunting odds, with "incredible" results.
