Trump Continues to Promote Puerto Rico Deaths Conspiracy Theory

Stacks upon stacks of bottled water sit near a runway in Ceiba Puerto Rico

President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump stands by tweets questioning Puerto Rico death toll: "NO WAY" Trump pushes back on ex-lawyer putting out book, cites "attorney-client privilege" Wealthiest Republican supporter in OH quits party MORE plans to travel to areas affected by Hurricane Florence next week once conditions improve and his visit won't disrupt recovery efforts, the White House said Friday.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora, a native of Puerto Rico, objected to President Donald Trump's comments on Twitter about the devastation Hurricane Maria did to his home in 2017. Indirect deaths are harder to count because they can include such things as heart attacks, electrocutions from downed power lines and failure to receive dialysis because the power is out - and those kinds of fatalities can happen after a storm has ended but while an area is struggling to restore electricity, clean water and other health and safety services.

"If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them on to the list", he tweeted. Astros shortstop Carlos Correa, also a native of Puerto Rico, skipped the visit to gather supplies for relief from Hurricane Maria.

In the weeks after the storm hit, the Puerto Rican government said 64 people died on the island. An estimated 1,833 people died as a result of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, while 2,996 died immediately or from injuries sustained in the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center.

Trump has focused his ire on San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, who positioned herself as a critic of his administration in the immediate aftermath of the storms.

"I would never intentionally run a program incorrectly", he said. "It's beyond dispute that our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico did NOT get all the help they needed from the Trump administration in the wake of Hurricane Maria".

Ron DeSantis, the Republican nominee for governor and a frequent defender of the president, disagreed with Trump's assessment.

"The George Washington University study analyzed the total number of deaths during a six-month period and compared them to historical patterns - without classifying any death as a result of Maria".

"Puerto Rico was incredibly successful", Trump said on Tuesday, adding that the island was fraught with issues prior to the hurricane. He's the president of the United States.

"Mr. President- I'd very much be willing to walk you through the scientific process of the study and how [George Washington University] arrived at the excess mortality number estimate", Rosselló replied to Trump's tweet.

"Physician unawareness of appropriate death certification practices. and the government of Puerto Rico's lack of communication about the death certificate process.substantially limited the count of deaths related to María".

Cora, the only Puerto Rican now managing in the majors and only the second ever to do so in baseball history, has grown exhausted of Trump's controversial takes on the devastating hurricane that wrecked his home island when it made landfall September 16, 2017, just a week after it had been pummeled by Hurricane Irma.
