Posted October 02, 2017

On Saturday, Kim Kardashian West offered President Trump some advice - from one reality star to another.

"Outside of the Fake News or politically motivated ingrates", Trump tweeted, "people are now starting to recognize the wonderful work that has been done by FEMA and our great Military". Its hurricane relief. These people need help.

"I told you, I'm nothing if not loyal", Baldwin's Trump replied.

Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz also told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on This Week that with the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria, the focus should be on "saving lives" and not the USA territory's high rate of debt or what it may cost to rebuild. "If I'm doing a film [a Lamborghini biopic opposite Antonio Banderas] in Rome in the fall, you can bet I'm going to be on a satellite from Rome doing Trump". "We're both New Yorkers, we both enjoy a good slice, we never go to Times Square and we love saying".

Cruz complained in multiple interviews about the US administration's response to the crisis in Puerto Rico.

Later in the day, President Trump did an about-face when he praised other officials in Puerto Rico, adding on Twitter, "Do not believe the fake news". Not fair to FR or effort!

President Donald Trump on Sunday strenuously defended United States efforts to bring relief to storm-battered Puerto Rico, even as one island official said Trump was trying to gloss over "things that are not going well". Trump on Saturday blasted her and those in the territory, whom he said "want everything to be done for them". He also said 10,000 federal workers are in Puerto Rico. Conditions are not favorable for development into a tropical storm, but locally heavy rainfall is expected over the Leeward Islands, including Dominica; the U.S. Virgin Islands; and Puerto Rico. Of the latter, he noted in that US territory "people working hard". "When you're drinking from a creek, it's not a good news story", Cruz shot back.

Ms Cruz said in an emotional news conference: "We are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency". People's lives and avoiding death above the debt. "This is a story of a devastation that continues to worsen".

The opening sketch wasn't the only part of the premiere that hammered the President regarding Puerto Rico.

He continued, "Ma'am, I don't know if you know this but you are in an island, in the water".
