Trump Blasted for Claiming Puerto Rico Death Toll of 3,000 is False: ‘YOU. ARE. A. DISGRACE’

The Twitterverse is seething with rage as President Trump is calling the Puerto Rico body into question while calling it a Democrat conspiracy.

As Hurricane Florence gets closer and closer to the southeastern U.S., Trump is defending his administration’s handling of the events last year after Hurricane Maria. This comes despite the recent indications that almost 3,000 people died from the storm and a direct result of the after effects.

In his latest tweets, Trump proclaimed that “3000 people did not die” in Puerto Rico, and that number was concocted by Democrats “in order to make me look as bad as possible.”

Of course, it didn’t take long for Trump’s tweets to take off on Twitter, and political observers are apoplectic:

San Juan mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, who Trump attacked yesterday, also responded to his latest statement, and she’s holding nothing back.
