Columnist at the Washington Post President Trump has a bone to pick with public health researchers at George Washington University. The Puerto Rican government commissioned the researchers to estimate the death toll in the months, following hurricane, Maria compared to the rate of death incomparable earlier periods. And they estimated that nearly three thousand extra deaths were attributable to the storm and it's long, slow aftermath. Puerto Rico adopted this as it's official death toll, but Trump does not think it is right. Three thousand people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. He tweeted Thursday when I left the island after the storm had hit, they had anywhere from six to eighteen deaths as time went by. It did not go up by much then a long time later, they started to report really large numbers like three thousand. This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billy. Of dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If.
