Trump Goes ‘Birther’ on Puerto Rico: ‘3000 People Did Not Die’ in Puerto Rico – ‘This Was Done by Democrats’

President Donald Trump's horrific response to the hurricanes that have it Puerto Rico last year helped cause the deaths of nearly 3000 people. An independent study, as many Americans now know, fund that 2975 people died as a result of the two hurricanes that hit the U.S. island territory.

President Trump just went full "birther," or "truther," or, well, crazy.

He is outright denying the deaths took place, and blaming Democrats for facts.

"3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths," Trump tweeted Thursday morning. "As time went by it did not go up by much," he says, with zero evidence.

"Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000," he continued.

"This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!"
