Hogan directs Maryland National Guard to aid Puerto Rico in hurricane recovery

"Well, maybe from where she's standing it's a good-news story", said the mayor, who has been pleading for help since Maria hit Puerto Rico more than a week ago. "We want them to be safe and sound and secure and we will be there every day until that happens".

Twitter was afire last night with retweets of Cruz's pleas for help and her claim that this "not a good news story"-a rebuttal to what Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke had said about the US government's response to Puerto Rico". "We are dying here", she said. "This is a 'people are dying" story.

"If you don't have food for a baby it's not a good news story".

President Donald Trump plans to make his first visit to Puerto Rico on Tuesday after critics - both Democrats and Republicans - accused his administration of a lackluster response to the catastrophic damage left by Maria.
