"When it comes to a Green New Deal people say, always, always with this question, 'How are you going to pay for it?' As though we're not paying for it now. As if the Midwest wasn't underwater this year. As if 3,000 Americans didn't die in Puerto Rico in Hurricane Maria." - @Ocasio2018

BREAKING: Pres. Trump rejects independent study that reports an estimated 2,975 people died in Puerto Rico in 5 months after Hurricane Maria; provides no evidence to discount the study; declares, without evidence, that the higher death toll is political ploy to make him look bad.

“When Trump visited the island territory last October, OFFICIALS told him in a briefing 16 PEOPLE had died from Maria.” The Washington Post. This was long AFTER the hurricane took place. Over many months it went to 64 PEOPLE. Then, like magic, “3000 PEOPLE KILLED.” They hired....

#FakeNews - The Hurricane Maria death tolls have been inflated & President was right to call out organizations who threw out science and statistics to try to discredit his administration. #MAGA  #TrumpTrain  #Dobbs 

No, – the Hurricane Maria response was NOT an "incredible unsung success.” Nearly 3,000 US citizens in Puerto Rico died. I've spent a year pushing your Administration on its many failures there. You need to face reality and do your job.

Hurricane Katrina killed 1,833 people. September 11th killed 2,977 people. Hurricane Maria killed 4,645 people. Don’t forget Puerto Rico.

We are the wealthiest country in the history of the world. How is it possible that 2 months after Hurricane Maria half the people of Puerto Rico don't have electricity?

This is an offensive, hurtful and blatantly false comment from the president. Nearly 3,000 of our fellow citizens died in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. That is the complete opposite of “success.”

The Puerto Rican government just updated the official death count for Hurricane Maria from 64 to 2,975 people. and his Administration utterly failed in their response, and US citizens died. That's the appalling, tragic reality.

Death count in Puerto Rico due to Maria has quadrupled since @POTUS  gave himself a big thumbs up for holding down hurricane fatalities.
