Puerto Rico's storm death toll of 3 000 is a Democrat plot

Initial government reports showed that there were 64 deaths related to the storm.

"The problem with Puerto Rico is that that their electric grid, their electric generating plant was dead before the storms ever hit", he said.

The mayor of Ceiba, Angel Cruz Ramos, told CNN he's grateful for the generosity, but believes that too much water was delivered at the wrong time. Trump blamed Democrats for reporting large figures in order to make him look bad. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Those questions were exacerbated yesterday by footage of millions of bottles of water sitting on a tarmac in Puerto Rico.

The federal government's response to the storm that hit Puerto Rico has been viewed as inadequate - full power was restored to homes just last month.

Trump spoke to reporters briefly after receiving a briefing by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and FEMA Administrator Brock Long on Hurricane Florence, which is expected to make landfall late in the week.

They estimated "total excess mortality" at 2,975 - and that has become the government count.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Cruz responded to Trump's comments Thursday morning in a series of messages on Twitter. "In the real world people died on your watch".

McCarthy: No decision yet on Rodgers facing the Vikings
Kizer, who was acquired in the offseason in a trade with Cleveland, started 15 games previous year for the winless Browns. But then out comes Rodgers, the two-time NFL MVP, hobbling on one leg out of the locker room.

"We're talking about the fact that this government allowed its own citizens to die", Hostin said.

She added another tweet saying the USA leader was "delusional, paranoid and unhinged from any sense of reality".

'You have people who died after the storm passed because they fell off their roof making repairs, they died in vehicle crashes because the stoplights were off, you have chainsaw accidents, you have accidents with people cleaning up debris, ' he said.

But Bossert also appeared to defend the president over the rising death toll from the hurricane.

President Trump is prepping for Hurricane Florence by boasting about his sparkling record fighting super storms - especially in Puerto Rico, where he insists less than 100 died, and NOT 3,000.

"What may be millions of water bottles. meant for victims of Hurricane Maria, have been sitting on a runway in Ceiba, Puerto Rico, since previous year, according to @FEMA, which confirmed the news to me", Begnaud wrote. But as the hurricane began to dominate news coverage, the administration's efforts after Hurricane Maria came under new scrutiny and began to infuriate Trump, according to two Republican advisers close to the White House who weren't authorized to speak publicly.

During a press conference on Thursday, Ryan was asked about a recent tweet, in which Trump falsely said that Democrats had inflated the death toll in Puerto Rico. Santana, who posted the photos to his Facebook on Tuesday, said he first saw the bottles there in either October or November of a year ago.
