A young Puerto Rican woman has "returned" one of the rolls of paper towels that US President Donald Trump threw to several people in a church of Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, during a four-hour visit to the hurricane-stricken island on Tuesday.

In an interview with Fox News, US President Donald Trump added to the economic strain of Puerto Rico by suggesting the US overseas territory should default on its debt. The rector of Carlos Albizu University, Julio Santana, reported that there was a "post-traumatic growth" after the phenomenon.

It Trump was just a populist who got things done and loved to take the credit, that wouldn't be a big deal. Check out the entire video here. The Category 4 storm left about 3.4 million residents without running water and completely without electricity. He thanked her and then walked away without acknowledging her words. Well, you know what? Officials have said power would be restored to the entire island before March.

"This terrible and abominable view of him throwing paper towels and throwing provisions at people, it really does not embody the spirit of the American nation", she said in another interview with MSNBC.

"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". He also compared the number of confirmed deaths (16 at that moment, though emergency responders note that number is unreliable due to communication issues) to "a real catastrophe like [Hurricane] Katrina", where thousands had perished. "And that's fine. We've saved a lot of lives".

His staffers, however, showed her a different approach and she praised their efforts. It is also reported that the population generally vulnerable to suicide are young adults, between 30 and 50 years.

Cruz has been vocal in her criticism of Trump, praising White House officials, but criticizing the president for the administration's overall response.

Katrina, one of the five deadliest hurricanes in the history of the United States, made landfall in 2005 in southeast Louisiana and killed 1,800 people.

"What! The budget is out of wack?" asked Colbert.

Widespread disasters offer presidents much to gain - or lose - politically as they try to play the role of comforter while competently leading the government's response to life-and-death issues for masses of Americans.
