>> Take a look at me. What do I look like? I look like a mess.>> Residents of Puerto Rico searching desperately for water, gasoline and other supplies, and still without power, nearly two weeks after hurricane Maria devastated the U.S. territory.>> I don't sleep at night. I have small kids.

I have a father in a wheelchair. We haven't had any water up there. I mean it's crazy.>> Some 400 people in line outside of a Walmart, waiting at pumps for diesel fuel and at the pharmacy for prescription drugs. Both shutting down before many were served.>> My baby's only one month and I have to get him medication and they cannot do nothing.

>> Carmen Miranda waited in line 13 hours for gas, only to be told the fuel station had run dry.>> Until that gas problem is resolved, it's just horrible, those lines. It's incredible. That needs to be resolved immediately. That's urgent. President Trump, anybody, help us get everything regulated again.

The gas, we need organization.>> Meanwhile, Trump, from his New Jersey Golf Club Sunday, tweeting his administration is doing a great job on recovery efforts in Puerto Rico. A message few, if any of the island's residents will see, without electricity or cell phone service. San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, who lost her house in the storm and has been attacked by Trump on Twitter for criticizing his administration's efforts, said on Sunday, she would be willing to meet with Trump when he visits the island Tuesday.

Two U.S. Senators weighing in Sunday on the finger-pointing.>> The President, instead of tweeting against the Mayor of San Juan, who's watching her people die and just made a plea for help would roll up his sleeves and get to work here.>> Every minute we spend, in the political realm, bickering with one another over who's doing what or who's wrong, or who didn't do right, is a minute of energy and time that we're not spending trying to get the response right.
00:01:59
>> Puerto Rico filed for the biggest bankruptcy in U.S. municipal history this year. The Commonwealth settled with a $72 billion debt load and near-bankrupt public health and pension systems. One insurance company estimating that claims from hurricane damage could reach $85 billion.
