A day after Trump launched a Twitter attack against San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz following her desperate pleas for more help, he tweeted that "we have done a great job with the nearly impossible situation in Puerto Rico". "You know, I actually love football".

The island is now under a flash flood warning until Sunday. "We're both New Yorkers, we both enjoy a good slice, we never go to Times Square and we love saying". Of the latter, he noted in that USA territory "people working hard".

"That woman is so nasty", Baldwin says as he hangs up to the phone, a sentiment Trump had expressed about Cruz earlier in the day on Twitter.

In the cold open, Melissa Villaseñor, playing Cruz, called Alec Baldwin's Trump, pleading for federal assistance. "I didn't see it as assigned to the people of Puerto Rico, I saw it as a personal difference with the mayor of San Juan".

"We're finding success in some areas, and in some areas we see setbacks" he said, "but we are making progress, in my opinion".

Colin Jost and Michael Che also slammed Trump for his response during SNL's "Weekend Update". Che basically said the same thing on Saturday night about Trump and minorities, though not in so many words.

- Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid)ZOMG #MichaelChe just called Trump a "bitch" and a "cheap cracker" over his response to Puerto Rico.

After going days without mentioning the hurricane-devastated island after the storm, officials have held numerous press conferences describing their relief efforts and Mr Trump has mentioned Puerto Rico at almost every public event. "These people need help", he continued.

"Oh, really Donald?" Che remarked.

"Given the president's history on race, given the fact that he, a few months ago, told us that there were good people on both sides, when neo-Nazis were marching in Charlottesville, yeah, I think we have a right to be suspect that he is treating the people of Puerto Rico in a different way than he has treated then people of Texas or Florida". He did not specify who those ingrates were.
