Hostin further bashed the Trump administration for not doing enough to stop preventable deaths after the storm.

The findings were embraced by the government of Puerto Rico as the study was released.

"I actually think it was one of the best jobs that's ever been done with respect to what this is all about", he said.

Trump's comments come as Hurricane Florence, now a category 2 storm, hurtles towards the Carolina coast, threatening millions in its path.

With all eyes on Hurricane Florence, a Facebook post is casting fresh doubts on the federal government's response previous year to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.

"Potentially, Hurricane Isaac right now is tracking south of the island, but we are - we had several thousand people inside Puerto Rico right now working on long-term recovery that has shifted to the response mode to monitor, as Isaac passes to the south", Long replied.

"In light of this, we have been in contact with FEMA and the Department of Health to test the water inventory received by the federal agency".

President Donald Trump is doubling down on his message from Tuesday.

Co-host Abby Huntsman - new to the program - pushed back on Trump's remarks, saying they were "indefensible" and "out of touch", and that his response was reminiscent of the Bush administration's approach to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Trump said on Twitter that "they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths" at the time he visited the island after the storm.

Puerto Rico's governor last month raised the US territory's official death toll from Hurricane Maria from 64 to 2,975. "The time and heat has made it bad", he added.

Long continued: "We are hyper-focused on those seven critical lifelines because we realized a year ago that if any one of those lifelines goes down, then life safety is in jeopardy".

President Donald Trump continued to insist Wednesday that his administration did a "great job" in responding to Hurricane Maria, which left almost 3,000 people dead, as Hurricane Florence rolls toward the Carolina coast.

Survey respondents gave higher marks to the Puerto Rican government, Gov. Ricardo Rosselló, the federal government and municipal governments. But people complained the bottled water smelled and tasted bad, so the Puerto Rico government told federal authorities they wanted to return it, he said.
