He spoke with several current and former Puerto Rican officials Saturday to discuss relief efforts on the island following Hurricane Maria and received a briefing from Federal Emergency Management Agency chief Brock Long on federal recovery efforts in the U.S. territory.

Trump also faced criticism this weekend for slamming Puerto Rican officials, including San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, for their “poor leadership” during the crisis.

“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,” Trump tweeted. "Such poor leadership ability by the mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help."

"They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort," he continued. "10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job."

Democrats blasted Trump for his tweets attacking Cruz, with several targeting Trump's location at the time.
