Trump disputes Hurricane Maria death toll in Puerto Rico
14 September, 2018, 18:16
President Donald Trump is rejecting the widely accepted death toll in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria, claiming without citing evidence that "3,000 people did not die". "Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000", Trump wrote on Twitter.
In a latest fit of fury, Trump successfully enraged millions of Americans by claiming the nearly 3,000 deaths in Puerto Rico after the devastation caused by two back-to-back hurricanes were fake news.
Trump cited no evidence for his tweet rejecting the widely accepted death toll of almost 3,000 in Puerto Rico because of Maria. One thing's for sure, and I told (the media) before, one thing I'm proud, we're standing up on our own two feet.
Hostin blamed the Jones Act, saying it allowed the US government to "pillage and rape" the island since its inception in 1920, before asking why Trump didn't have an equal reaction to Maria as President Obama did to Haiti, which isn't even a USA territory.
He also said the Democrats were "trying to make [him] look bad" by reporting the high numbers of deaths.
The president ignited controversy when he tweeted that the approximate 3,000 death toll was inflated by Democrats.

Ahead of Florence striking the USA east coast, Mr Trump spoke with political leaders in the Carolinas and offered "whatever is needed", Sarah Sanders, the White House spokesman, said. Those were not needed during the response phase and were not distributed by the governor of Puerto Rico or FEMA for that reason'. While Puerto Ricans were still dying as a result of the hurricane - due to shortages of electricity and medical care - Trump informed the island's inhabitants that they should be grateful that his efforts had spared them from suffering a "real catastrophe like Katrina".
"Trump is so vain he thinks this is about him".
There is no indication Trump raised "billions" to help rebuild the island and the government's Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema) has said its response was strained after responding to two other major hurricanes weeks before Maria. Brock on Thursday said that "if we made mistakes with the way a program was run, then we'll work.to get this corrected".
