"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", Trump added.

Earlier this month, Puerto Rico's governor formally raised the death toll from Hurricane Maria to an estimated 2,975 from 64, following the study conducted by researchers at The George Washington University at the federal government's request. When we think of people dying in a hurricane, we picture those who are washed out to sea, struck by flying debris, trapped under collapsed buildings, drowned in rising storm surge waters or even expiring from exposure while trapped on their roofs awaiting rescue. Trump in his tweets blamed Democrats for inflating the numbers.

"The team found that lack of communication, well-established guidelines and training for physicians on how to certify deaths in disasters resulted in a limited number of deaths being identified as hurricane-related", read the study.

There were 2,975 deaths in Puerto Rico that came as a result of Hurricane Maria.

As Hurricane Florence continued its destructive path in North and SC on Friday, President Donald Trump has reportedly been fixated on unflattering news reports about his response to Hurricane Maria, which hit Puerto Rico in September 2017.

Hostin blamed the Jones Act, saying it allowed the USA government to "pillage and rape" the island since its inception in 1920, before asking why Trump didn't have an equal reaction to Maria as President Obama did to Haiti, which isn't even a US territory.

Public health experts have estimated that almost 3,000 perished because of the effects of Maria.

"Those are just the facts of what happens when a disgusting hurricane hits an isolated place like an island", Ryan said when asked about Trump's tweet.

Ottmar Chavez, now administrator of Puerto Rico's General Services Administration, said FEMA reported that it had about 20,000 pallets of bottled water in excess in May this year, before Chavez was appointed.

Cora said Trump's words were "disrespectful" to his home.

That report, while acknowledging that Puerto Rico's power system was on "life support" before the hurricane, also said that approximately 96 per cent of residents had power restored to them after Hurricane Irma hit before Maria.

"As the President said, every death from Hurricane Maria is a horror".

Throughout the week, the president has repeatedly defended his administration's efforts in Puerto Rico, calling it it an "incredible, unsung success" and renewed his verbal spat with Cruz, the San Juan mayor.

"I have an uncle who committed suicide because of the hurricane that happened", said Santos-Vasquez. "We deserve and expect more from someone who holds the highest office in our country", Nelson wrote on Twitter - and shortly thereafter released the identical statement in Spanish.

Trump's latest grumbling on the Maria death toll comes as Tropical Storm Florence inundates the Carolinas, killing at least four people.
