Alex Cora discusses Trump's comments on Puerto Rico

"How stupid, how tone deaf, how surreal, how insensitive, how offensive, how offensive to the relatives of the 3,000 people who died in Puerto Rico!" she said passionately.

Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, ranking Democrat on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, sent a letter to the GOP majority Thursday calling for the panel to request documents from the White House relating to the Puerto Rico response. But's important to understand, the number of people who died because of Maria did not suddenly jump from 64 to 2,975.

Trump's evidence for why the study was wrong?

In a tweet, Trump said, "3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico".

"How stupid, how tone deaf, how surreal, how insensitive, how offensive", Navarro told CNN.

She went on to say that when raw data is compared to the response to Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas to Harvey and Irma in Puerto Rico, it is vastly different. Curbelo said he sees no basis for that claim.

The territory then raised the official death toll again to reflect that estimate. The U.S. Government Accountability Office subsequently found numerous failures on the part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, including a lack of trained personnel, equipment and supplies in Puerto Rico.

Shortly after doing so, he rejected her handshake offer and hugged Thompson instead, rubbing her back and saying: "That's nice". The frankly disturbing footage, shows Weinstein acting incredibly inappropriate, propositioning the woman, and caressing her.

It also followed hard on a study commissioned by the Puerto Rican government that showed the death toll from Maria was close to 3,000.

Although it appeared that he was talking about the unstoppable nature of the weather event itself, the latter comment elicited a strong response on Twitter, where multiple users accused Ryan of failing to stand up to Trump's false and incendiary rhetoric. It added that the study "was carried out with complete independence and freedom from any kind of interference". "We are confident that the number - 2,975 - is the most accurate and unbiased estimate of excess mortality to date", a Milken statement said.

Stewart was being interviewed Wednesday about Trump's earlier statements that his administration's handling of the hurricane that hit the USA territory was "an incredible, unsung success" and "one of the best jobs that's ever been done".

Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora wasn't a big fan of President Donald Trump's comments Thursday about Puerto Rico.

As Hurricane Florence approached the Carolinas on Thursday morning, Trump disputed the official conclusion that almost 3,000 people died in Puerto Rico because of Hurricane Maria previous year, claiming the figure was a Democratic plot to make him look bad. Its inhabitants are US citizens, though they are barred from voting in presidential elections and have only one congressional representative with limited voting powers. Bob Cortes, R-Altamonte Springs, his campaign's Puerto Rico outreach chair.

But when have Democrats ever let the facts get in the way of an anti-Trump myth? That's actually lower than the estimate published by Harvard researchers in the New England Journal of Medicine - 4,645 - but it still puts Maria's death toll on a par with 9/11, whose 17th anniversary we just commemorated.

The governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rossello, isn't even a Democrat - he's a member of the pro-statehood New Progressive Party.

"The victims in Puerto Rico and the people of Puerto Rico, do not deserve that their pain is questioned".

Chuck Schumer, the Senate Minority leader, said Trump owed an apology to the 3,000 families for "the shameful attack on deceased fellow Americans". "What's going on is the president is doubting the death toll", Tapper schooled Urbin.

'3000 people didn't die in the hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico.

Republican Ron DeSantis' campaign issued a statement that said the gubernatorial candidate -- typically one of Trump's most-ardent supporters -- is "committed to standing with the Puerto Rican community, especially after such a tragic loss of life" and that he "doesn't believe any loss of life has been inflated".

"Damn it, this is not about politics, this was always about saving lives", she told NBC television.

The feud between Cruz and Trump goes back to when the Category 4 storm hit last September 20. Cruz had earlier described the federal disaster response in the United States territory a "despicable act of neglect". Trump called the count a move by Democrats to make him look bad.

"When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from six to 18 deaths", Trump said. As time went by, it did not go up by that much. "Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000".
