Trump Accuses Democrats of Altering Statistics on Hurricane Deaths in Puerto Rico

President Donald Trump tweeted out the words of two Fox newsers Friday night to prove how great of a job he has done with Puerto Rico and to paint the local governments on the island as "corrupt".

"Those are just the facts of what happens when a terrible hurricane hits an isolated place like an island", Ryan said when asked about Trump's tweet. "Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000".

"If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them on to the list", he tweeted. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!' Trump wrote. On Aug. 27, the Puerto Rican government put the number of dead at 2,975, a total based on a George Washington University study commissioned by the Puerto Rico government that includes deaths caused or not prevented because the island's infrastructure was decimated.

The death toll in Hurricane Maria is estimated to be almost 3,000, a steep increase from the initial 64. I hate that people that make it a political issue.

Trump orders use of sanctions to punish election interference
The forceful rhetoric stands in sharp contrast to Trump's own statements about Russia's efforts to undermine American democracy. In his first public comments since he retired in June, Rogers said: "That should concern us as citizens".


The revelation comes as President Trump doubled down on his administration's response to Hurricane Maria on Wednesday and lashed out at the mayor of San Juan, who has been a critic of the effort, as "incompetent". "I'll take that but the rest of the 3,000 and plus more died because of the aftermath because of the lack of help that he gave", added Santos-Vasquez.

Trump bristled at criticism of his administration's handling of the Puerto Rico disaster as Hurricane Florence approached the coast of North Carolina with heavy rains that forecasters warned would cause catastrophic flooding across a wide swath of the USA southeast.

When asked what he planned on telling President Trump, Long said he was going to "let him know we're pre-positioned the best we can be". "The people that went through this, they know what happened".

That number was produced by public health experts at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., in a report commissioned by the US territory's governor, Ricardo Rossello.

Google's main search platform has been blocked in China since 2010, but it has been attempting to make new inroads into China. Another troubling detail revealed by The Intercept comes from how the search service will report weather data.


Cruz maintains the federal government's response to the hurricane was slow and inadequate while Trump said it was a success. Both have made outreach to Florida's growing Puerto Rican population a focus of their campaigns.

One year ago, FOX61 interviewed three sisters who were in tears after they finally got a phone call from their mother in Puerto Rico after not hearing from her for weeks after the hurricane ripped through their neighborhood.

Cora, the only Puerto Rican now managing in the majors and only the second ever to do so in baseball history, has grown exhausted of Trump's controversial takes on the devastating hurricane that wrecked his home island when it made landfall September 16, 2017, just a week after it had been pummeled by Hurricane Irma.

"Puerto Rico went through a tragedy".
