In an exclusive interview with Fox News' Geraldo Rivera, President Donald Trump continued his praise of the "just 16" person death count in hurricane devastated Puerto Rico.

When Behar said she believes his supporters will see the paper towel tossing as "a gesture of friendliness" and some of his comments as Trump being "lighthearted in a awful situation", Goldberg wasn't buying it.

"I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you are throwing our budget out of whack", Trump said in a meeting with relief workers on Tuesday. One can not dismiss the severity of the damage in Puerto Rico just because there are 16 official reported deaths as of September 27.

One of those critics was San Juan's Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz whose complaints prompted Trump to attack her on Twitter for her "poor leadership".

Stephen Colbert didn't hold back when talking about Trump's visit to Puerto Rico on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump went to Puerto Rico to address the rescue efforts and the response on the hurricane-ravaged island.

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, there are now more than 10,000 federal officials on the ground on the island, and 45% of customers now have access to drinking water.

Mr Trump arrived in the U.S. territory nearly two weeks after the storm and with electricity restored to only a tiny percentage of its 3.5million residents.

Surrounded by a sea of cellphone cameras, Trump said, "There's a lot of love in this room", and called those in attendance, "Great people".

However, not everyone was happy with the president's first appearance in the US territory after Hurricane Maria pummeled the island, leaving millions of people without electricity and depleted resources.

In one tweet, Trump wrote, "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". You know, they owe a lot of money to your friends on Wall Street.

Last night, Puerto Rico governor Ricardo Rossello said the revised death toll was 34 - but that figure is expected to rise further in the coming weeks.

In an interview with CNN, she said that Trump sometimes "spouts" comments "that really hurt the people of Puerto Rico".

The storm added greatly to the woes of Puerto Rico's 3.5 million residents, who endured a decade-long recession made worse by austerity policies to deal with the island's $72 billion debt.
