Stephen Colbert, Chelsea Handler & More Respond to Trump's Puerto Rico Tweet

Possibly Millions Of Water Bottles Meant For Hurricane Maria Victims Left On Tarmac In Puerto Rico

The Republican president said Democrats had inflated the number of dead in Puerto Rico "in order to make me look as bad as possible" but he did not provide evidence.

Wallace noted that she used to begin her show by joking that "the bottom was calling saying it wanted to know if we were there yet".

Trump continued to enrage his critics in a series of tweets on Friday night, casting doubt on an academic study that calculated almost 3,000 deaths in the months following Maria.

Brock Long, the head of the US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), warned that Florence could "kill a lot of people".

John McCain. And Navarro has been absolutely livid about Trump's recent claims that the 2975 death toll in Puerto Rico is merely a Democratic Party fabrication.

Facing criticism over his handling of the hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico previous year, US President Donald Trump has accused rival Democrats of inflating the number of people killed there.

At least five people have died during Hurricane Florence after the storm made landfall on the North Carolina coast on Friday.

George Washington University also counted those who died in the six months following the storm as a result of poor healthcare provision and a lack of electricity and clean water. "The people that went through this, they know what happened".

"I thought you all wanted to talk about the Kavanaugh nomination", he said.

Then 18 minutes later, he added: "GWU Research to tell them how many people had died in Puerto Rico (how would they not know this?)".

Paul Ryan, the Republican house speaker, said he had "no reason to dispute" the death toll of 3,000.

Trump recently went on another Twitter rampage, this time lying about his recovery efforts for Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria and Irma.

The Puerto Rican government commissioned the study in February.

Puerto Rico, an unincorporated territory of the United States, is home to some 3.3 million people.

Trump has particularly been irritated by video footage of him throwing rolls of paper towels to a crowd of relief workers on the island, according to The Washington Post. Puerto Rico's governor formally updated the death toll from the storm to 2,975 people in August, after multiple news outlets and universities demonstrated that thousands of people died during the days and weeks after Maria.

Earlier this month, the Government Accountability Office released a report that revealed FEMA had been so overwhelmed with storms by the time Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico that more than half of the workers it was deploying to disasters were known to be unqualified for the jobs they were doing in the field.

It used the "best science" available, he said, but they will continue to study deaths from Maria and revise the number if necessary.
