The death toll from Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico has now reached 34, according to the spokesperson for Governor Ricardo Rossello, who said that the worst hurricane to hit the USA territory in more than 90 years caused around US$90 billion worth of damage.

After his visiting the island Tuesday Trump said he had a "terrific visit" and the island's residents "are so thankful for what we've done", telling reporters on Air Force One that "we only heard thank-yous".

"They need to show up. they need to do a lot of hugging, letting people know help is on the way, we're here for you, we support you, a lot of listening because people aren't feeling heard, especially Puerto Rico feeling like they're an island that in some ways ins't getting what they need". Instead, an estimated total of 10,000 shipping containers sit at the numerous ports of Puerto Rico are unable to be delivered.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz donned "nasty" shirt during interview Wednesday in response to President Trump's tweet.

Trump also spent some time learning about water purification tablets, asking a local "Would you drink it?" and when she answered in the affirmative, added, "Really?" while looking dubiously at the package of tablets.

Mulvaney, who spoke to Mr. Trump after his interview, said that the president meant the island would have significant costs related to rebuilding efforts and would receive robust assurances from the federal government.

The island was recently hit by powerful Hurricane Maria and has been working to restore power and clean water to the territory. "We've saved a lot of lives". "Well you know what, they're dying".

The governor of Puerto Rico says the official death toll from Hurricane Maria has been raised from from 16 to 34 peope.

However, Cruz praised the White House staff and said, "I saw a real connection between the reality and the White House staff".

"There's a time for lighthearted and there's a a time for not", she said, "and being on an island that's devastated and people are dying, I don't think amusing is really the direction you want to go". We will help Puerto Rico rebuild from the storm.

Later in the day, Trump made a 20-minute visit to a church where he posed for pictures with people seeking relief supplies, and hurled paper towel rolls into the crowd.

"The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump".

According to census data taken before the storm hit Puerto Rico, unemployment on the island was about 11 percent, while the poverty rate stood at 45 percent.
