SNL: Michael Che Calls Trump "You B*tch" Over Puerto Rico Response

Mountain of vital supplies stuck in San Juan

Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of Puerto Rico's capital city, San Juan, had accused the Trump administration of failing the United States territory.

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". And the US military is working with Puerto Rican officials and the island's National Guard to reach those still cut off.

Trump's tweets came after he faced mounting criticism of his jabs at the mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulîn Cruz.

"Damn it, this is not a good news story", an exasperated Cruz told CNN on Friday.

Miranda, a playwright and actor who created and starred in "Hamilton", is the son of Luis A. Miranda, Jr., who moved to NY from Puerto Rico when he was 17.

Trump tweeted after Cruz criticized the White House's response to Maria's disastrous impact on the USA commonwealth.

The US president lashed out on Twitter at the mayor of Puerto Rico's capital over what he implied was insufficient gratitude for federal help in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

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

The mayor, who is living in a shelter after her home was destroyed, said Puerto Rico is set to be without power for six to eight months after the storm damaged 90% of homes on the island.

Almost all of Puerto Rico's 3.4 million residents are without power, and many without cell service, food, or water.

This follows Cruz's tearful plea to the government to help on Friday, standing in front of palettes of food and water donated by other people.

George Takei, Lady Gaga and Lin-Manuel Miranda are among those in Hollywood hitting back at Donald Trump after his latest tweets directed at Puerto Rico's "poor leadership". "My daughter would be better", she said.

On Sunday, Trump boasted about his administration's recovery efforts in Puerto Rico on Twitter, admonishing "political ingrates" who were criticizing him.

"We tried to embed staff with the mayor", Long said.
