President Donald Trump is visiting Puerto Rico today to survey the damage caused by Hurricane Maria.

The president will speak with first responders and victims of the storm.

The White House has been criticized by some who say the response has been too slow.

Many on the island still don't have power, and there are shortages of food and other basic needs.

But the president says his administration has sent more than enough supplies to Puerto Rico.

"It's been amazing what's been done in a very short period of time on Puerto Rico. There's never been a piece of land that we've known that was so devastated. The bridges are down, the telecommunications was non-existent and it's in very very bad shape, the electric grid was totally destroyed, but we've gotten tremendous amounts of food and water and lots of other things, supplies, generally speaking on the island," Trump said.

The mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulin Cruz, has called the federal relief process inefficient.

Trump called his team's critics "politically motivated ingrates."

While on his trip today, President Trump will meet with the governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Governor Kenneth Mapp, who's a Brooklyn native, will discuss recovery efforts in the region.

Mapp says he and several others will meet with the president on a naval vessel off Puerto Rico's coast.

The governor says so far he's been happy with the federal storm response, but he plans on asking for more money for recovery efforts. 

He also wants to discuss a roofing program that he says is taking too long to reach some residents.

"It was not on my list, but with my meeting tomorrow with President Trump, it will be on my list. That's clearly a bureaucracy issue, somebody isn't seeing through the trees because of the forest. The reality is I don't care how many contractors it takes to rapidly produce tarps on roofs. You know how many roofs you anticipate to fix," Mapp said.

Five people died on the Virgin Islands as a result of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, and buildings were left heavily damaged.

Only about five percent of the four islands currently have electricity.
