Is Trump's Tweet About Deaths In Puerto Rico His Most Disgusting Yet?

Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000.This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico.

Now, many realize that lies come to Trump as naturally as breathing air, but to suggest that the deaths of three thousand Americans were simply the work of a Democrat conspiracy to make him look bad is next level.

President Donald Trump tosses paper towels into a crowd in Puerto Rico previous year following Hurricane Maria.

A top FEMA official defended the agency after a photo revealed millions of water bottles the agency had positioned on the island sitting on a runway a year after Hurricane Maria knocked out critical supply chains.

Throughout his presidency, Trump has struggled to publicly express empathy at times of national crises, sparking outrage during his post-Maria visit when he feuded with the San Juan mayor and tossed out paper towels to victims like he was shooting baskets. "The loss of any life is tragic". "I'll continue to help PR".

UPDATE: Gov. Rick Scott, Republican and candidate for U.S. Senate, has weighed in too.

"We deserve and expect more", he tweeted, "from someone who holds the highest office in our country". Bill Nelson called the president's comments "shameful".

But it pointedly noted that DeSantis "doesn't believe any loss of life has been inflated".

"The president's comments on the almost 3,000 American lives lost in Puerto Rico are shameful".

Space Station's view of Hurricane Florence looks eerily apocalyptic
NASA also recorded what it called "stark and sobering" video footage of Florence from the space station on Wednesday. Once Florence makes landfall, it'll be the first major Atlantic hurricane of the 2018 season to hit the mainland US.

Florence strengthens 'rapidly,' now powerful Category 4 hurricane

Trump warns further China tariffs 'ready to go'
Trade Representative's office continues to "run their process", White House Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters said on Friday. Apple , in the letter it sent to the USTR, did not give an estimate as to the amount the tariffs would increase costs.

Last October, she criticised Mr Trump when the United States commander-in-chief threw paper towels to people in the crowd during a visit to Puerto Rico after the hurricane.

DeSantis rode the president's endorsement to victory in the Republican primary for governor and has been one of the president's biggest backers in attacking the FBI and special counsel investigation into Russia-Trump campaign ties during the 2016 election.

Hurricane Maria killed 2,975 people in Puerto Rico, a long-awaited independent investigation into the 2017 storm concluded last month.

Trump's evidence for why the study was wrong? "That is not fake news, Mr. President". That doesn't mean you caused it, and its not about you. Show compassion for the families.

"Our goal is to provide a way to move forward, to get away from the controversy of numbers and move into, what can we do to protect and prevent [deaths] in the future?"

The head of Puerto Rico's general services administration says the water will likely be returned. He told one adviser that he felt that he media "would stop at nothing" to undermine him and blamed local authorities for their inept response.

"His comments, to me, are ludicrous when you have known institutions that are respected for their research and their being able to be substantiated through rigorous scientific methods", Pacione-Zayas said.

"The other thing that we need to mention", Hostin continued.
