Trump says Hurricane Maria death toll number was made up by Democrats
16 September 2018, 10:00 | Darnell Patrick
The true human cost of Maria, and the chaotic federal response to the storm on the USA island territory, triggered a year-long controversy, which Trump revived this week even as another powerful hurricane, Florence, bore down on the East Coast.
Late night show hosts like Trevor Noah and Stephen Colbert used their media platforms to call out Trump's appalling and deeply insensitive response to the deaths that accumulated in wake of the storm. "As time went by it did not go up by much", he says, with zero evidence. "Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000", Trump tweeted. He falsely claimed the number had been inflated by Democrats "in order to make me look as bad as possible".
As Business Insider noted, the death toll from Hurricane Maria was estimated at 13 when Trump arrived on the island to survey relief efforts. "So we're talking several days of power outages where they've already begun", Joseph said.
Trump continued calling it an "unsung success" hampered by San JuanMayorCarmon Yulin Cruz, and the whole "island" thing. The footage prompted accusations that Trump lacks empathy. That criticism has sharpened with the landfall of Hurricane Florence and allegations that Trump's administration is not prepared to respond. In New York City, more than 540 Puerto Rican evacuees are already in the city shelter system, and 30 other families may end up there after their hotel vouchers end.
When a reporter asked Trump about Maria in the Oval Office, he swiftly unleashed fact-challenged defense of his response to the hurricane.
One number major news organizations have not given is five.
The study - done by the school's Milken Institute of Public Health - reported that the deaths occurred between September of last year and February of this year.

The company also touted its own fresh four-core GPU design that purports to be as much as 50% faster than the part in the A11. You get a 12MP main sensor, and another 12MP telephoto lens, with new lenses, that are supposedly better than before.
Numerous deaths in the aftermath of Maria were attributed to power failures and limited access to healthcare and clean drinking water.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides doctors with a set of recommendations for counting such deaths as those caused by natural disasters, but the guidelines were nearly never followed by Puerto Rican doctors in the chaos after the storm. Many Puerto Ricans who fled from Maria relocated in Florida, a crucial swing state central to the president's election and Republican control of Congress. Former congressman and GOP gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis - an ardent Trump defender who campaigned with the president during the Republican primary - also said he disagreed with Trump Thursday.
The elderly and impoverished were hardest hit by the hurricane.
No one would use such a foolish methodology except for political reasons.
The water was believed to be part of relief efforts after Hurricane Maria wrought devastation on the United States territory last September.
But Trump, that official said, was unwilling to admit even internally that more needed to be done on the island.
The report from the "Washington Post" claims Trump is fixated on how he is portrayed regarding the response to Hurricane Maria.
As for the Trump administration, more than half of federal emergency personnel in Puerto Rico were not qualified for their assigned tasks as of October 2017, a month after landfall, according to a September 5 report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office.
How did they get their figure?
But the joint investigation reflects how Puerto Rico'smost vulnerable fell victim to the dire conditions created by the storms.
