Trump has pledged to spare no effort to help Puerto Rico recover from Maria's ruinous aftermath, and tweeted that military personnel and first responders have done "an awesome job", despite having "no electric, roads, phones etc".
He also claimed "the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico" had demonstrated "poor leadership ability".
"They want everything to be done for them", Trump said.
"Ultimately the government of Puerto Rico will have to work with us to determine how this massive rebuilding effort ... will be funded", he said.
"I am begging you to take charge and save lives".
"We have no time for patience any more", said Carmen Yulin Cruz in a news conference. "I won't feel confident until I hear my Mom saying yes, they're helping us, yes, we are receiving things, yes, there's water - we can buy water, yes - there's gas", says waitress Jessica.

Iran marks Sacred Defense Week with massive military parades
The unveiling by the Revolutionary Guard came during a military parade in Tehran that commemorated the 1980s Iraq-Iran war. Iran has "successfully" launched a ballistic missile with a range of 2,000 km, a state-media report said on Saturday.
Seven lawmakers led by Representative Nydia Velazquez of NY had urged Trump to waive the restrictions for a year in order to speed delivery of critically needed supplies to devastated Puerto Rico's 3.5 million residents. Shipping costs from the mainland to Puerto Rico have been estimated to be twice as much as from neighboring countries, the senators said.
Early this morning, in recognition of the severe impacts on Puerto Rico from Hurricanes Irma and Maria, Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Elaine Duke approved a waiver of the federal Jones Act. "This is a 'people are dying" story.
President Donald Trump on Friday said "there's never been anything like" the devastation in Puerto Rico, which is facing a humanitarian crisis in the wake of Hurricane Maria sweeping through the Caribbean island last week. "Damn it, this is not a good news story".
President Donald Trump tore into Puerto Rico through a series of tweets Saturday morning, complaining just days before he is to head to the USA island territory that it wants "everything to be done for them" and calling the mayor of San Juan "nasty" after she criticized his administration's response to the disaster. "If we don't get the food and the water into people's hands, we are going to see something close to a genocide", she said.
President Donald Trump is lashing out at the mayor of Puerto Rico's capital city in a war of words over recovery efforts after Hurricane Maria smashed into the US territory. But he warned that the U.S. Congress would need to help rebuild the island.
Following Trump's tweets, photos of Cruz, wading in floodwaters up to her waist and holding a megaphone, went viral.
Rossello said the Trump administration has given his government "whatever we ask for" in the immediate aftermath of the hurricane.
