Trump previously said he received nothing but "thank yous" after his visit to Puerto Rico on Tuesday.

Despite President Donald Trump's statements about the strong recovery Puerto Rico has made and his declaration that Maria was not "a real catastrophe like Katrina", almost half of the island's 3.4 million people are still without drinking water and 85 percent of the territory is without power.

Rossello told a news briefing in San Juan he ordered an investigation of water distribution after receiving complaints. "The Middle East when I took over was a mess, and it's much less of a mess now but we have problems".

The president has not yet responded to Mayor Cruz' most recent assessment of Puerto Rico and the response from the USA government. JEA said it could take up to a year for the USA territory to finally return to normal.

Long said 16,000 federal and military assets are on the ground in Puerto Rico and about 350,000 Puerto Ricans have registered so far in the FEMA system to receive financial assistance.

It's been almost three weeks since Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico, depriving most of the island of its electricity, cell service, infrastructure, and drinking water.

He warned on CNN that there would be "hell to pay" if local authorities weren't delivering it to those in need. "It's not about us, it's about the people of Puerto Rico and getting them back on their feet as quickly as we can".

Elijah says that he had faith that his daughter had not been harmed, but that it was time for them to be reunited.

Weaver went on to note that Trump's tweets claiming that Puerto Rico wants "everything done for them" broke her heart "and the hearts of many Americans". "I have insufficient data to provide a timeline but I would say it is going to be a long period of time before everything is completely restored".

"In regards to resources, of course we're strained", Long said.
