Trump Lashes Out at Puerto Rico Mayor Who Criticized Storm Response

Ms. Cruz had criticized the Trump administration on Friday for its rosy comments on the state of hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico, and the president responded Saturday morning.Credit Xavier J. Araujo/GDA, via Associated PressWASHINGTON — President Trump lashed out at the mayor of San Juan on Saturday for criticizing his administration’s efforts to help Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, accusing her of “poor leadership” and implying that the island, which lacks electricity and has limited cellphone service, water and fuel, was not doing enough to help itself.In a series of early-morning messages on Twitter from his New Jersey golf club, where he is spending the weekend, Mr. Trump dismissed the statements by the capital’s mayor, Carmen Yulín Cruz, as political and asserted that his administration had organized a response by federal workers who are “doing a fantastic job.”Mr […]

Rick Pitino Fired by Louisville Amid F.B.I. Investigation

Louisville’s athletic director, Tom Jurich, was placed on paid leave, Postel said, “until the board of trustees has an opportunity to evaluate his continued employment.”Jurich met with members of the university’s board Wednesday morning but left after only five minutes. Pitino met with the trustees soon after Jurich. His meeting, too, was short; one reporter waiting outside noted that the driver of the vehicle that delivered Pitino did not turn off its engine while he was inside.On Tuesday evening, Pitino denied any knowledge of, or responsibility for, the accusations detailed in the federal charges, saying in a statement: “These allegations come as a complete shock to me. If true, I agree with the U.S. Attorney’s Office that these third-party schemes, initiated by a few bad actors, operated to commit a fraud on the impacted universities and their basketball programs, including the University of Louisville.”Pitino was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013, recognition for a four-decade coaching career in college basketball and the N.B.A. With 770 wins over parts of 32 seasons, Pitino ranks 12th on the Division I career victories list — although that figure could change pending the appeal of the N.C.A.A. penalties announced in June. He is also the only college coach to win national titles with two different colleges, Kentucky and Louisville — although that distinction, too, could change if Louisville is forced to vacate its 2013 championship.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Hurricane Maria Live Updates: Structural Damage at Guajataca Dam Prompts Evacuations in Puerto Rico

“Its been hard to see infrastructure deteriorate in Puerto Rico,” he said, “but it has been harder to meet citizens who have lost it all.”Continue reading the main storyAccording to the United States Army Corps of Engineers, Guajataca Dam is an earthen structure, 120 feet high and nearly 1,000 feet long. It was built in the mid-1920s by the Army Corps of Engineers, but is now owned by the power authority.It lies across the Guajataca River, forming a reservoir that can hold about 11 billion gallons of water that is used for drinking, irrigation and power generation.Sign up for the Morning Briefing for hurricane news and a daily look at what you need to know to begin your day. See how the storm traveled across Puerto Rico, and here is a guide on how to help victims.Aid is being sent to Puerto Rico.Officials in Puerto Rico were corralling incoming aid as rescue and recovery efforts continued after the storm, Mr. Rosselló said on MSNBC on Friday.“There’s still some rain and, of course, the soils are saturated, so it’s still not safe to go outside,” he said. “We’re still on emergency protocol and our main objective right now is making sure people are safe.”PhotoResidents lined up on Friday, seeking water from a spring in an area hit by Hurricane Maria in Cayey, P.R.Credit Carlos Garcia Rawlins/ReutersMr. Rosselló said that the island was getting generators, mattresses, food and water from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and from others in the private sector.Officials have established a logistics center, which will receive all incoming aid and then distribute it to 12 zones throughout the island, he said.“The people of Puerto Rico are really being tremendous under these circumstances,” he said.Some elderly residents had been found in rural areas without food and necessary medication, Carmen Yulín Cruz, the mayor of San Juan, said on CNN on Friday.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Hurricane Maria Live Updates: Catastrophic Flooding in Puerto Rico

President Trump said on Wednesday that he had “never seen” winds like the ones generated by Hurricane Maria as it made landfall in Puerto Rico.Continue reading the main story“We have a big one going right now — I’ve never seen winds like this — in Puerto Rico,” he said as he entered a meeting in New York with King Abdullah II of Jordan. “You take a look at what’s happening there, and it’s just one after another.”Late Wednesday, the White House declared the United States Virgin Islands a disaster area, to make federal funding available for residents of St. Croix.The king extended his “condolences” to residents in the path of the three storms that have hit the United States over the last several weeks, adding, “For us sitting on the outside, looking at how the Americans came together at a difficult time is really an example to everybody else.”On CNN, Brock Long, the administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said that the agency was well positioned to help on Puerto Rico and on the United States Virgin Islands.

Trump Declines to Release List of His Visitors at Mar-a-Lago

Federal law exempts the White House from the Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, which requires public disclosure of government documents. But CREW and its partners argued that because the presidential visitor records are typically maintained by the Secret Service — which is part of the Department of Homeland Security — they should not be exempt from public release.In July Judge Katherine Polk Failla of Federal District Court in Manhattan ordered the Trump administration to release the “records of presidential visitors at Mar-a-Lago” by September.But the Department of Justice, in a statement it sent to CREW, said it had decided not to release the names of everyone visiting with the president at Mar-a-Lago.“The remaining records that the Secret Service has processed in response to the Mar-a-Lago request contain, reflect, or otherwise relate to the president’s schedules,” Chad A. Readler, acting assistant attorney general, wrote in response to CREW in a letter dated Tuesday, but delivered on Friday. “The government believes that presidential schedule information is not subject to FOIA.”Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred. Please try again later.You are already subscribed to this email.View all New York Times newsletters.Noah Bookbinder, CREW’s executive director, said that the organization would challenge the Justice Department’s decision. The Obama administration had faced a similar lawsuit before it decided in late 2009 to start to make visitor logs public, a practice that stopped with Mr. Trump’s arrival.“After waiting months for a response to our request for comprehensive visitor logs from the president’s multiple visits to Mar-a-Lago and having the government ask for a last minute extension, today we received 22 names from the Japanese prime minister’s visit to Mar-a-Lago and nothing else,” Mr. Bookbinder said in a statement […]

Trump to Monitor Hurricane as His Cabinet Descends on Camp David

PhotoPresident Trump with the first lady, Melania Trump, on their way to Camp David on Friday.Credit Al Drago for The New York TimesWASHINGTON — President Trump will monitor the impact of Hurricane Irma from the presidential retreat at Camp David on Saturday, officials said, as he holds the fourth full cabinet meeting of his presidency to discuss how to advance his administration’s priorities during the balance of his first year in office.Aides said Mr. Trump would receive hurricane briefings throughout the day as the powerful storm marches toward the southern tip of Florida, forcing millions of residents to flee the impending surge of water and brutally strong winds.“With gratitude for our first responders, and prayers for those in the storm’s path, America stands united — and I mean totally united,” Mr. Trump said in his weekly address, which was released Friday evening.Administration officials expressed confidence on Friday that the Federal Emergency Management Agency had the resources to respond to Hurricane Irma even as it continues to deal with the aftermath of the flooding in Texas and Louisiana from Hurricane Harvey.“I’m pretty comfortable in our ability and our capacity as leaders, but also as institutions to handle the various different things that come our way,” said Thomas P. Bossert, the president’s Homeland Security adviser.In his address, Mr. Trump pledged that “we will endure and come back stronger than ever before.” But in a tweet later Friday night, Mr. Trump raised concerns with a longstanding policy that prevents FEMA from providing grants to houses of worship that are damaged by hurricanes and other natural disasters.Three Texas churches that were damaged by Hurricane Harvey filed a lawsuit this past week arguing that the policy violates their constitutional right to freely exercise their religion. FEMA’s position for years has been that the constitutional separation of church and state prevents the use of federal money to build religious institutions.White House officials said the president had invited all of the members of his cabinet, and their spouses, to Camp David for the weekend.Among the agenda items for the cabinet meeting, officials said, is a discussion of Mr. Trump’s legislative agenda, including a push for an overhaul of the nation’s tax code, new investments in infrastructure, and his call for Congress to extend protections for the young undocumented immigrants known as “Dreamers.”“The goal is that Congress makes a permanent fix and that Congress actually does their job, and that we have responsible immigration reform that takes place over these six months,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said on Friday.Continue reading the main story […]

Storm With ‘No Boundaries’ Took Aim at Rich and Poor Alike

“I have never seen anything — and this goes back to Hurricane Carla in 1961 — remotely, remotely similar,” he said. He added: “North, south, east, west, the paralysis knows no boundaries.”Of course, as residents begin to recover, there are huge differences between the options open to the poor and to the well-to-do. Mr. Armenta, who specializes in sheetrock finishing, has no insurance and no savings to rely on for rebuilding. Dr. Nguyen has savings for an emergency, and flood insurance. The Nguyens can live on their second floor. The Armentas do not have one. But what is clear is the devastation is connecting people of disparate means in one common experience: loss.On Tuesday, with the storm not yet over, Mr. Armenta stood in a yellow raincoat in the moat around his house, next to a nephew wielding a machete meant to fend off alligators and snakes.
