"Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda on Monday warned President Donald Trump on Twitter "there will be a lot of American deaths on your watch" if disaster aid is not sent to Puerto Rico soon.

Miranda, whose parents were born in Puerto Rico and who is an outspoken critic of the president, was responding to another tweet which indicated the White House is expected to send a disaster relief aid request for Puerto Rico only in the first or second week of October.

More than three million American citizens are suffering from terrible conditions after Hurricanes Irma and Maria caused widespread damage and power outages, The Hill reported.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Monday that Congress is working with the Trump administration "to ensure necessary resources get to the U.S. territory."

Miranda has been continuously posting on Twitter his efforts to organize donations to help with the relief efforts and reporting on progress in getting aid to the island.
