On Saturday morning, Trumptweeted, "The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump".
"Trump's racist neglect of Puerto Rico is threatening lives", CNN contributor Brian Fallon said in a tweet Monday.
"Puerto Rico has been devastated by Hurricane Maria", Jose Carrion, the board's chairman, said in a statement. She also said her complaints had resulted in more food and water being provided. On that front, she ran into winds as fierce as Maria.
More troops, medical supplies and vehicles were on the way to the island, but it will be some time before the USA territory is back on its feet, the senior US general appointed to lead military relief operations said on Friday. Trump, from his golf club in New Jersey, took to Twitter to accuse Cruz of partisan politics.
According to the administration, more than 90 percent of the island now is now accessible; some 200 gas stations are open. He said he will not allow food, water and medical supplies to remain stuck at ports due to a "lack of execution".
At the start of a speech Friday, Trump promised he would not rest until everyone on the island was safe, and said he had sent 10,000 federal personnel to help with security and transportation, but warned hard decisions and hard work lay ahead for an island deep in debt. "It's been wiped out".
In the meetings, the board said it also requested that several federal agencies assign employees "to the board for the next several months to support Puerto Rico's recovery efforts". Trump said he was not aware of Duke's "good-news" remark. "The real question is what is going to happen later". The major has accused his administration of "killing us with the inefficiency".
Amid the economic woes, the island has also seen the largest percentage drop in population of any USA state or territory since 2010, which will likely hamper any recovery.
"Ultimately the government of Puerto Rico will have to work with us to determine how this massive rebuilding effort, which will end up being one of the biggest ever, will be funded and organized, and what we will do with the tremendous amount of existing debt already on the island", Trump said.
Eight days after Hurricane Maria made landfall, almost half the population still does not have access to potable water and huge numbers of people are struggling to get access to fuel to power generators, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Trump had praise for Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello, who has said he is pleased with the federal response to the disaster.
"I saw it as a personal difference with the mayor of San Juan", he said. She said she meant "it was good news that people of Puerto Rico and many public servants of the United States are working together". During an interview Friday on CNN, she cast the situation as "a story of devastation that continues to worsen".
Trump is expected to survey the damage Tuesday. UNICEF and the Salvation Army are just two organizations accepting monetary donations to help in Puerto Rico relief efforts. "There's going to have to be a lot more hands-on federal engagement for us to be able to successfully carry out the mission".
That's a lament that has been heard across Puerto Rico in the week since Maria roared through and has Trump administration critics comparing the slow response to the botched response following Hurricane Katrina. It is blamed for 16 deaths on the island.
On Tuesday night, the Department of Homeland Security said that it would be unnecessary to waive the Jones Act for Puerto Rico . The Trump administration waived the act after recent hurricanes Harvey and Irma, which battered Florida and Texas.
