Senate Hopeful Rick Scott Breaks With Trump Over Puerto Rico Deaths

  • President Trump seeks praise for Puerto Rico response as Hurricane Florence barrels toward Carolinas

In two tweets this morning, with Hurricane Florence barreling toward the eastern coast, Trump not only disputed the revised death toll of 2,975 confirmed by a government study, but suggested that everything on the island was just fine when he visited immediately after the storm. President Trump took a four-day golf vacation in its immediate aftermath. Then, like magic, "3000 PEOPLE KILLED".

Rep. Carlos Curbelo said both sides had politicized the Puerto Rico response.

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. An independent study, as many Americans now know, fund that 2975 people died as a result of the two hurricanes that hit the US island territory.

Conservative commentator Erick Erickson tweeted Thursday that the media deserved blame for Trump's unsubstantiated assertions. Trump in his tweets blamed Democrats for inflating the numbers. It was conducted by the nonpartisan George Washington University's Milken Institute School of Public Health.

Florence, Category 3 on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale, is expected to make landfall on Friday with 130 mile-per-hour (215 kph) winds and big waves, with rains taking a heavy toll inland. Trump is so vain he thinks this is about him. "It was the worst humanitarian crisis in modern American history and many, many people impacted by this storm point to government inaction as the cause of death", Ocasio-Cortez, a self-identified Democratic Socialist, said on CNN's "State of the Union". "Our basic infrastructure was devastated, thousands of our people lost their lives, and many others still struggle", he said in a statement.

Ryan denies the figure reflects poorly on Trump, saying, "casualties don't make a person look bad".

The mayor of Puerto Rico's capital accused Trump of being "delusional".

The Governor of Puerto Rico Ricardo Rossello slammed the president's comments and argued that the relationship between "a colony and the federal government" could never be successful.

He says, "the victims of Puerto Rico, and the people of Puerto Rico in general, do not deserve to be questioned about their pain". One thing's for sure, and I told [the media] before, one thing I'm proud, we're standing up on our own two feet. "It is time to acknowledge their pain and the sacrifice that everyone has made in the name of recovery". A range of other studies have placed the death toll estimate anywhere between 500 and 6,000.

On The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, the South African comedian said, "You see what the president doesn't seem to understand is that the effects of a hurricane last long after the storm has already passed, like the people on the Titanic, who froze in the water still died because of the crash".
