But in Congress, Republicans from Florida have been gently suggesting in public to the White House - and the President - that the while there has been a mobilization of resources, the effort is not what's needed.

Carmen Yulin Cruz posted twin tweets in Spanish and English saying: "The goal is one: saving lives. But it's been incredible", he said on CNN's Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin. When you have to pull people down from their buildings because you know, I'm sorry, but that really upsets me and frustrates me. "I will continue to do what I have to do, say what I have to say, compliment the people that I have to compliment, and call out the people that I need to call out". Trump went on to say, "This is a thing called the Atlantic Ocean".

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. "Don't take my word for it, take a three-star general's word for it".

In a series of tweets sent while Trump was visiting his New Jersey golf resort, the president criticized Yulín Cruz for "not being able to get workers help" and he applauded the federal workers on the island for their efforts.

"Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello just stated: 'The Administration and the President, every time we've spoken, they've delivered, '" the president tweeted.

"With them being in debt, they don't have enough ready liquid cash to pay their normal share", Bossert told CNN. "We can not be distracted by anything else", Cruz wrote alongside photographs of relief work on the island. "This is a point where we can't look at small differences".

"We will not rest, however, until the people of Puerto Rico are safe", he said. The storm has been blamed for 16 deaths in Puerto Rico so far, but the lack of food, medicine, drinking water and electricity have created a much larger threat to public health.
