JUAN LUIS MARTINEZ  GDA  El Nuevo Dia  Puerto Rico

The 43rd season premiere of the NBC sketch series opened with Alec Baldwin's Trump speaking on the phone with San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, who was played by Melissa Villaseñor.

President Donald Trump on Sunday strenuously defended U.S. 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".

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.

Thousands more Puerto Ricans have received water and rationed food as an aid bottleneck has begun to ease.

Mr Trump is scheduled to spend an hour checking in by phone with Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator Brock Long, Puerto Rico's governor, Ricardo Rossello, and other local officials. They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort. "I'd love to keep doing this per my availability, but I have other things I'm going to do, so I guess we'll figure it out", explained Baldwin. Of the latter, he noted in that US territory "people working hard".

President Trump's response to the unfolding humanitarian disaster in Puerto Rico was desperately inadequate (and that's putting it generously) until Saturday, when it became downright shameful.

"Maybe from where she's standing it's a good news story", Cruz said.

Cruz, who has appeared regularly on USA cable news programs, was particularly pointed in rejecting a statement by acting Homeland Security secretary, Elaine Duke, who called the government's response "a good news story in terms of our ability to reach people and the limited number of deaths that have taken place".

She explains to him that Puerto Rico is, in fact, part of the United States. Che said. "You can't walk into a store and do a million dollar's worth of damage and then be like, 'I get it, I'll leave'".
