[Idiot] Trump contradicts Puerto Rico's toll, says 3,000 didn't die from hurricanes

Idiot Trump denies report of Puerto Rico hurricane deathsThough Puerto Rico's official estimate indicates otherwise, President Donald Trump said he doesn't believe thousands in the territory died because of Hurricanes Maria and Irma.

Instead, Trump said, Democrats inflated the number to make him look bad. He said after he visited the island last year, the death toll was no greater than 18 and as time passed, "it did not go up by much."

Other estimates, however, contradict the president's comments. Results of a Harvard University study released in May said at least 4,645 died because of Hurricane Maria. Puerto Rico upped its official estimate to 1,427 deaths in a draft report dated in July. In August, a new study from George Washington University and the University of Puerto Rico put the death toll at 2,975, tallying direct and indirect deaths from September 2017 to February 2018. The territory then raised the official death toll to reflect that estimate.
