(SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico) - The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, whom President Donald Trump slammed on Twitter for "poor leadership", said she would meet with the president when he visits the island Tuesday if she is invited to do so. He renewed that criticism hours later. The major has accused his administration of "killing us with the inefficiency". "Each of us can help right now".

Check out Miranda and Trump's tweets below.

"Fake News CNN and NBC are going out of their way to disparage our great First Responders as a way to "get Trump".

"This is what we got last night: four pallets of water, three pallets of meals and 12 pallets of infant food - which I gave them to the people of Comerio, where people are drinking off a creek", Cruz said.

But according to the president, Cruz need look no further than herself for the problems.

While this series of tweets were reportedly sent from Trump's golf club over the weekend, reports say that more than 10,000 federal officials are working to clean up and restore Puerto Rico.

Trump's criticisms of Cruz seem to be politically-related, with the former claiming that the latter had "been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump".

The segment also mocked Tom Price, Trump's response to protests against police brutality in the National Football League, the NBA's ban on those protests, and the German elections (with Kate McKinnon as Angela Merkel). But the mayor of San German, a town of about 35,000 in the south-western corner of the island, echoed Ms Cruz's harsh words.

On Wednesday, CBS News' David Bregnaud showed thousands of shipping containers filled with supplies sitting at the port of Puerto Rico.

"We want to help you, but we have to take care of America first", says Baldwin's Trump while making fun of the fact how the island is surrounded by ocean water which has 'fishies, bubbles, and turtles that bite'. "I'm fighting to save lives".

Che then retorted, "This isn't that complicated, man".

"The mayor is living on a cot", Honore said.

Long said the storms that struck Puerto Rico - Irma and Maria - greatly magnified the challenge for relief workers by damaging or wiping out some 3,200 roads or bridges.

"I think we have to filter out the noise", he said from FEMA headquarters. "This is a point where we can not look at small differences, we can not establish differences based on politics".
