Trump just doubled down on a lie about Hurricane Maria's death toll

Trump says Democrats inflated Puerto Rico death toll

Puerto Rico Secretary of State Luis Rivera Marin called out Yulin Cruz last night on Fox News as being one of Puerto Rico's politicians who has "politicized" the natural disaster. "I don't know how they arrived at the information".

"It's actually disrespectful for my country", said Cora, who was wearing a black T-shirt with an image of Puerto Rico on the front.

The agency said the close to 20,000 pallets of drinking water that could contain as many as 12 million bottles, were considered extra in February.

Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello commissioned George Washington University's Public Health School to look into the question.

He disputed the fact that almost 3,000 people died in Puerto Rico as a result of two hurricanes that hit the island.

"The job that FEMA and law enforcement and everybody did, working along with the governor in Puerto Rico, I think was tremendous".

Cora said that while Trump is president and respects him, he doesn't agree with "a lot of stuff that he says about us".

Apart from snailfish, they also found various freaky creatures in the environment such as long-legged isopods or Munnopsids . But although they lack giant teeth and a menacing frame they are highly adept at living where few other organisms can.

Noah also cited the report, but did a take on a new "sh***storm Trump", and had mock stand-ups from various weatherpeople and newspeople, who treated the President as though he were a storm threatening the US. Trump dismissed the findings Thursday, tweeting: "If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list". "When I left the island after the storm had hit, they had anywhere from six to 18 deaths".

On "Outnumbered" on Thursday, Melissa Francis said she doesn't understand why Trump weighed in on the matter, calling it "incredibly distasteful" to debate Maria's death toll as another deadly hurricane bears down.

In a statement, the institute said it would "stand by the science underlying our study".

As the days went by, the death toll kept increasing, eventually reaching 64. "We try to reach the truth, and we try to understand what is damaging the people in order to prevent disease", he said.

The elderly and impoverished were hardest hit by the hurricane.

The findings were embraced by the government of Puerto Rico as the study was released. A USA territory since 1898, Puerto Rico's inhabitants are citizens, though they can not vote in presidential elections and have only one congressional representative with limited voting powers.

Bahamonde said FEMA chose to move the bottled water to the runway in Ceiba, Puerto Rico, and make them available on a government contract in January, as demand for the water from the Puerto Rican government decreased.
