Trump and his administration have been criticized for offering an optimistic view of the federal government’s response, while much of the island goes without power or clean drinking water. Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke called the response to the disaster a “good news story,” to which San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz said, “Dammit, this is not a good news story,” but a “‘people are dying’ story.”

Trump, seated around tables with leaders from Puerto Rico and the federal government, praised the federal response to the storm and Puerto Rico’s congresswoman.

He thanked Puerto Rico’s governor, Ricardo Rossello, for praising him and the federal response to the storm.

“He didn’t play politics,” Trump said. “He told it like it was, gave us the highest marks.”

Trump then expressed how impressed he has been with the response of disaster relief workers to the storm, saying, “I mean, I’ve never seen people working so hard in my life.”

After introducing Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, Trump mentioned the effect Hurricane Maria is having on the federal budget.

“I have to tell you Puerto Rico, but you’ve thrown our budget a little out of whack,” the president said.

I hope you are miserable for the rest of your life. I hope that won’t be long. I really want to see your obituary!
