Alex Cora on Trump's comments: It's about human beings

Trump promises all-out response to Hurricane FlorenceMore

Trump called the death toll a plot by Democrats to make him look bad. That figure was then compared to the number of deaths reported from September 2017, when the hurricane hit, to February 2018, when the island still struggled with blackouts and a shortages of essential supplies on the road to recovery.

President Donald Trump rejected Puerto Rico's official estimate of 2,975 hurricane-related deaths, saying that "3,000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico", putting the number at "anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths". If a person died for any given reason, such as old age, just add them to the list.

"Only Donald Trump would try to make the deaths of almost 3,000 Americans into a story about himself and his political fortunes", Mr. Hoyer said in a statement.

But his comments come weeks after Puerto Rico's governor raised the US territory's official death toll from Hurricane Maria from 64 to 2,975.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, a frequent critic of Trump, was appalled by his latest message.

"I hate talking about politics and all that, but I think this is more than politics".

"What is wrong with the president, and truly, what is wrong with the White House staff that lets him deny the deaths of the people of Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria?".

While Trump battles the media over his response to Maria, FEMA is briefing Americans on what to expect from Hurricane Florence.

The study also found that the elderly and low-income Puerto Ricans were the most affected by the storm.

As one hurricane comes toward the U.S., President Trump is fighting back criticism over how his administration handled the last major hurricane.

A report earlier this month by the Government Accountability Office described the government as "down to the bottom of the barrel" in staffing by the time Maria hit Puerto Rico, citing a series of other hurricanes and catastrophic wildfires past year that overwhelmed federal disaster responders.

Members of both parties on Capitol Hill disagreed with the president's statements. "I am begging. I am begging anyone that can hear us to save us from dying. Trump has been laser-focused on hurricane response this week, just not this one", says Colbert.

Hurricane Florence is bringing widespread flooding, heavy rains and strong winds to many coastal areas of North and SC.
