Trump: Democrats Invented The Hurricane Death Toll In Puerto Rico Just To “Make Me Look As Bad As Possible”

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Thursday appeared to cast doubt on studies that found roughly 3,000 people died in Puerto Rico as a result of Hurricane Maria. Puerto Rico officials late last month increased the death toll as a result of the 2017 storm to 2,975 after a study by the George Washington University that assessed the aftermath of the hurricane found the number was significantly higher than the 64 deaths that had originally been reported.
