Very good towels, ' Trump told Huckabee in a sit-down with the ex-governor's new Trinity Broadcasting Network.

"What the fake news media will not show you", a graphic says at the start of the clip. "The media is really, I think one of the greatest of all terms I've used is fake - I guess other people have used it perhaps over the years, but I've never noticed it".

"So next day, they said, 'Oh, it was so disrespectful to the people, '" Trump continued, referring to the press.

The majority of citizens in Puerto Rico have been without power for nearly three weeks after the storm hit.

Of course, the video comes following criticism of the Trump administration's handling of the disaster - and handling of paper towels.

Trump defends his hurricane response in Puerto Rico

FEMA Administrator Brock Long said on Sunday that as his agency responds to the crisis in Puerto Rico, it's also "filtered out" San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, adding: "We don't have time for the political noise".

'And I sometimes ask myself how did I ever get here with the disgusting, unfair publicity?' the president mused.

In critiquing the media's overall coverage of him, Trump also took credit for coming up with the term "fake".

Trump visited the USA territory Tuesday and praised the "amazing job" being done by federal officials in rushing in supplies and working to restore electricity and power.

President Donald Trump visited the Hurricane Maria devastation in Puerto Rico on Tuesday and praised relief efforts there, but Cruz criticized him for his "abominable" behavior when Trump threw paper towel rolls to storm survivors and said his visit was a publicity stunt. 'I mean look, the media is fake, in the meantime I'm here, it's sort of incredible, ' Trump said, referring to his current White House post.
