"Given the president's history on race, given the fact that he, a few months ago, told us that there were good people on both sides, when neo-Nazis were marching in Charlottesville, yeah, I think we have a right to be suspect that he is treating the people of Puerto Rico in a different way than he has treated then people of Texas or Florida".

Trump fired back at Cruz in a tweet, accusing her of "poor leadership" and saying some Puerto Ricans "want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort".

He even went so far as to say that Cruz's opinion of him changed because she listened to Democrats - though no one is quite sure how that fits into discussion about hurricane relief. "I am begging, begging anyone that can hear us, to save us from dying. Fantastic job!" he tweeted.

Maria, the most powerful storm to strike Puerto Rico in almost 90 years, has destroyed roads, making it hard to get food, water and fuel around the island. However, many remain desperate for necessities, most urgently water, long after the September 20 hurricane.

Trump, who spent the weekend at his golf resort in Bedminster, N.J., said his administration is making a difference in Puerto Rico.

More than half of Puerto Rico's 3.4 million people lack access to drinking water 11 days after Hurricane Maria hit the U.S. territory, and 95 percent remain without power, according to the U.S. Defense Department. "We can not be distracted by anything else".
