'No good news in Puerto Rico' says mayor

U.S. President Donald Trump said it was Puerto Rico's fault that aid to the island after Hurricane Maria was delayed.

"Fake News CNN and NBC are going out of their way to disparage our great First Responders as a way to "get Trump".

"Outside of the Fake News or politically motivated ingrates", Trump tweeted, "people are now starting to recognize the unbelievable work that has been done by FEMA and our great Military".

However, roughly two weeks later, 11 major highways have been reopened, 700 of roughly 1,000 gas stations now have petroleum, 300 pharmacies are now operating and 16 people so far have died, compared to about 1,800 deaths during and after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 in New Orleans, Long said.

George Takei posted three tweets pointing out Trump's upcoming stay at his golf club, writing, "The irony of Trump golfing and tweeting - saying the mayor of San Juan wants "everything to be done for them" - it's [as] thick as his skull".

"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.

Trump then continued tweeting into the afternoon, praising other Puerto Rican officials, including Governor Ricardo Rossello and Congresswoman Jenniffer Gonzalez-Colon.

Away from Puerto Rico, the opening sketch also brought on Kate McKinnon as Attorney General Jeff Sessions and commented on Trump's attacks on NFL players who kneel during the National Anthem in protest of social and racial injustice.

The TFL sided with the MPs and argued that the recent refusal is due to Uber's failure to accurately report "serious criminal offense".

Hurricane Maria left many of Puerto Rico's 3.4 million United States citizens without shelter, water, power, and other basic necessities.

"We have no time for patience anymore", said Carmen Yulin Cruz was quoted as sayin in news conference.

Mr Trump has said that Hurricane Maria "totally destroyed" the island and left it with "no electric, roads, phones etc".

The segment also mocked Tom Price, Trump's response to protests against police brutality in the National Football League, the NBA's ban on those protests, and the German elections (with Kate McKinnon as Angela Merkel).

In a series of tweets Saturday, Trump accused the mayor of "poor leadership" and want the government to do everything for them.

Che read out one of the president's tweets saying that Cruz had been "told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump".

While Trump did not directly call Cruz out, his past attacks on the mayor suggest that the "politically motivated ingrates" portion of his tweet is directed squarely at Cruz. "Where is there good news here?"
