FDA warns of possible drug shortages following Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico

A toppled electronic billboard lies atop a house one week after the passage of Hurricane Maria in San Juan Puerto Rico

Her words drew sharp rebuke from San Juan's Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz.

He then retweeted videos from the military and other emergency responders working in Puerto Rico.

He went on to denigrate other leaders, as well as the Puerto Rican people who "want everything to be done for them".

After days of urging, Trump on Thursday temporarily lifted restrictions on foreign shipping from the United States mainland to Puerto Rico to move aid more quickly and the Pentagon appointed a senior general to oversee military relief operations.

"Mr. Trump, we appreciate everything you're doing, and we know it can be done faster", she said.

Cruz also called out FEMA, saying, "I can not fathom the thought that the greatest nation in the world can not figure out the logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles long". I am begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying. Trump's latest missive could further inflame sentiment after he had earlier weighed in on the emerging fight over how to finance the already debt-stricken territory's recovery - comments that were viewed as premature and distasteful by some.

But McCain said that it's not sufficient to help Puerto Rico rebuild from Maria.

Trump added: "We will not rest, however, until the people of Puerto Rico are safe".

Acting Homeland Secretary Elaine Duke, center, is briefed on the Hurricane Maria response during a flight to Puerto Rico on Friday, Sept. 29, 2017.

The White House said Trump will make calls to several Puerto Rico officials, including Gov. Ricardo Rosselló, on Saturday afternoon.

"Maybe from where she's standing it's a good news story".

"Don't let your people die like this". Of the latter, he noted in that US territory "people working hard".

Ten days after Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico, the USA territory's governor approved a moratorium on rent payments for those living in public housing as residents struggle to recover from the devastating storm.

"It is unacceptable to force the people of Puerto Rico to pay at least twice as much for food, clean drinking water, supplies and infrastructure due to Jones Act requirements as they work to recover from this disaster", he wrote.

Rossello said the Trump administration has given his government "whatever we ask for" in the immediate aftermath of the hurricane.

"It's something that's really needed and we wanted to step up in a significant way", he said.
