At least 3,000 people died because of Maria, yet Trump called relief efforts "an unsung success", and even doubled down on Wednesday, tweeting that the government "did an unappreciated great job in Puerto Rico.an inaccessible island".

Despite significant evidence showing almost 3,000 people were killed in the devastating storm a year ago, Trump tweeted that the official death toll was a political scheme, two days after he was sharply criticised for saying the government had an "unsung success" in its response to Maria.

Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico on September 20 2017.Initial figures from authorities recorded 64 deaths however last month the United States territory estimated the death toll stood at 2,975, making it the deadliest storm to have hit Puerto Rico since the 1899 San Ciriaco hurricane.

"I'm confident that those that needed those bottles of water got them during the response phase and these were excess bottles of water that were, again, transferred to save money for the American taxpayer in January", Kaniewski said. 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", he tweeted Thursday.

The Republican president suggested the hurricane death toll was artificially inflated by adding those who passed away from natural causes such as old age.

20,000 pallets of water bottles were found left unused in a runway in Ceiba, Puerto Rico, in the aftermath of the devastating Hurricane Maria, CBS News has reported. At the time, the government's death toll stood at 64.

The governor of Puerto Rico, who commissioned the research, said he accepted the estimate as official.

Repeated power cuts also led to an increased number of deaths from diabetes and sepsis.

That finding wasn't the result of a traditional death-toll accounting, but a public health study that compared mortality in the six months following the storm with the number of deaths that would have been expected if it had not hit the island.

Santana's images appear to have been taken by drone, and he accompanied them saying, "Although you do not believe it ... nearly a million boxes of water that were never delivered to the people of PR, before the emergency of Hurricane Maria".

"The historical relationship between Puerto Rico and Washington is unfair and un-American".
