A running list of Donald Trump's conspiracy theories

The upshot was the president claimed the numbers were concocted merely to make him look bad. "So I have no reason to dispute those numbers".

Cora, 42, a native of Puerto Rico who became Boston's manager this season after a 14-year playing career, said he respects the president, but expressed his displeasure with how the natural disaster had become a "political issue", the Boston Herald reported. She said he had no idea what is going on there and that Trump has "no empathy" for anything that doesn't make him look good. He has a golf club in North Carolina and a winery in Virginia, so maybe the American people in those states will get more of the President's help than my fellow Puerto Ricans did. "The loss of any life is tragic", Scott continued, "the extent of lives lost as a result of Maria is heart wrenching".

"Hey, man, thank you for helping us".

The statement Thursday is in response to President Donald Trump's tweet rejecting the study's conclusion.

"As chairman of the National Security Subcommittee, he conducted an oversight hearing earlier this year to identify deficiencies in the federal response to Hurricane Maria", the campaign said of DeSantis, who this week resigned from Congress to focus on the gubernatorial race.

"3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico", Trump tweeted, referring to a recent study that significantly expanded the United States government's initial assessment that 64 people died when Hurricane Maria battered the island last September. But that toll should have at least another 1,000 added to it because that's the number of people who died due to debris exposure. "Direct" deaths include such fatalities as drownings in a storm surge or being crushed in a wind-toppled building.

Later in August, the aforementioned independent report put the death toll of the 2017 storm at almost 3,000 people - most of whom died after the storm due to complications from widespread power outages and water shortages.

George Washington University researchers are standing by their study that found the death toll following Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico was 2,975, considerably higher than first thought. The revision was based on the findings of a George Washington University study. It added that the study "was carried out with complete independence and freedom from any kind of interference". We are public health people.

"The aftereffects, people don't talk about that", he said.

While the storm was directly and immediately responsible for a smaller number of deaths, an independent report placed the number of deaths blamed on the hurricane at 3,000. Still, Trump was unwilling to admit that more needed to be done by the federal government. In August, after a thorough review, Puerto Rican officials accepted a revised estimate of the dead as 2,975.

Rossello is a leader of the island's pro-statehood New Progressive Party, which aligns with Republicans, while Cruz is from the Popular Democratic Party, whose members affiliate with the Democratic Party.

Last month, following the release of the report, the White House released a statement from press secretary Sarah Sanders saying the government "has been, and will continue to be, supportive of Governor Rosselló's efforts to ensure a full accountability and transparency of fatalities resulting from last year's hurricanes".

Republican response was largely muted. He further claimed that he "successfully [raised] Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico".

Carmen Yulín Cruz, Mayor of Puerto Rico's capital San Juan and vocal critic of Trump, tweeted her dismay at his latest offensive. "It wasn't because this president doesn't care about Puerto Rico".
