Trump: Democrats Will Lie About Florence Response

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Tuesday preemptively attacked Democrats for any potential criticism of his administration’s response to Hurricane Florence along the mid-Atlantic coast.

Trump’s unprompted attacks against Democrats on Tuesday come less than a week after he claimed without evidence that the party was responsible for inflating the death toll of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico to make him “look as bad as possible.”

The president doubled down on his unfounded claim that 3,000 people did not die in Maria, despite the Puerto Rican government officially adopting the findings of a George Washington University study that said as much.
