Trump denies death toll in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria

 United States President Donald Trump on Thursday refuted the Puerto Rican Government's assessment, that Hurricane Maria claimed 3,000 lives in Puerto Rico, accusing the Democrats of inflating the death toll to "make him look bad."

"3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000," Trump wrote on Twitter.

"This was done 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.

 If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!" he added.

Trump's comments came when Hurricane Florence was already beginning to batter the coast of the Eastern United States, including the North and South Carolina.
