Trump Blames Democrats for Inflated Puerto Rico Death Toll

President Trump accused Democrats of inflating the 3,000-person death count from last year’s hurricanes in Puerto Rico in order “to make him look bad.”

The stunning accusation is Trump’s defense against those that try to drive discourse as Hurricane Florence bears down on the Southeastern U.S.

In a pair of tweets, Trump disputed an independent report commissioned by Puerto Rico’s government that raised the death toll from Hurricane Maria to 2,975.

The president said the number was manufactured “by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico.”

President Trump’s latest comments drew an instant rebuke from San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, a vocal Trump critic, Who is under Investigation for corruption and who also accused the president of minimizing the plight of Puerto Rico.

It’s only a matter of time before President Trump is once again proven to be correct but in the meantime other within the government including the Governor of Florida is turning on the President and backing extremely fake News perpetuated by the Democrats
