Trump mocked for tossing paper towels to hurricance victims

While Cruz said she had good conversations with the White House staff and was optimistic about relief efforts moving forward, she said Trump's involvement in the meetings were just for good publicity.

Donald Trump threw paper towels into the crowd when he visited Puerto Rico for the first time since Hurricane Maria devastated the Caribbean island.

"Sir, it's on tape, you're being criticized because people are seeing. they're not making it up, you're not a cartoon there".

No wonder San Juan mayor Yulin Cruz said Trump's comments prove a "lack of sensibility" on the part of the President.

They shook hands at the airport during Trump's brief visit to the island on Tuesday, but he did not call on Cruz for remarks as he met with other federal and local officials.

Mulvaney, who spoke to Mr. Trump after his interview, said that the president meant the island would have significant costs related to rebuilding efforts and would receive robust assurances from the federal government. "And we're going to have to wipe that out", he said.

Puerto Rico officials have criticised the United States government's handling of the natural disaster as too slow.

While Puerto Rico has been combating the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, many figures across the globe have stepped up to aid the battle, including Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel and singer Pitbull.

She also slammed the president for throwing paper towel rolls into a crowd.

"It doesn't make you feel good", Cruz said.

It has been two weeks since Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico, leaving the USA commonwealth on the brink of a humanitarian crisis. "We're talking about life or death". The death toll was later revised upward to 34 casualties on the island. "We spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico and that's fine, we saved a lot of lives".

Donald Trump downplayed the severity of the hurricane during his visit as he claimed Puerto Rico should be proud only 16 people died.

The mayor confirmed that the shirt was meant to protest Trump, who has recently taken aim at her over Twitter.

At his first stop, the President met with Federal and local officials, where he downplayed the effects of Maria, implying it was not "a real catastrophe like Katrina", and poked fun at the USA territory's expensive storm damage.
