"We got A Pluses for our recent hurricane work in Texas and Florida (and did an unappreciated great job in Puerto Rico, even though an inaccessible island with very poor electricity and a totally incompetent Mayor of San Juan)", Trump wrote on Twitter.

WASHINGTON-President Trump on Thursday denied Hurricane Maria caused 3,000 deaths in Puerto Rico, falsely accusing Democrats of inflating the toll to "make me look as bad as possible".

He accused Democrats and Puerto Rican officials of driving up the death toll by adding deaths due to "any reason, like old age", contending "they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths" when he left after a post-storms visit. "Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3,000".

President Trump thinks the latest estimate of about 3,000 dead from Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico is a lie made up by his political opponents.

Trump had questioned the findings of a study released last month by George Washington University that examined the toll from Hurricane Maria. Last month, it acknowledged in a document filed to Congress that the death toll from Maria was much higher than the official total. "Those are just the facts of what happens when a disgusting hurricane hits an isolated place like an island".

"This is what denial following neglect looks like", declared San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz in response to Trump's tweets. The boxes, Santana said, were delivered before Maria's arrival. "Before, during, and after the two massive hurricanes, the President directed the entire Administration to provide unprecedented support to Puerto Rico", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said.

State Sen. Victor Torres, an Orlando Democrat who is Puerto Rican, called Trump's tweets "painful and horrifying and completely unfounded", while also labeling Scott and DeSantis the president's "closest allies" in Florida.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló, who until recently had gone out of his way to avoid conflicts with Trump, also expressed frustration. Puerto Rico is still struggling to recover.

The Trump administration has been widely criticized for its response to Hurricane Maria a year ago, when the storm devastated the island and crippled its infrastructure. Its inhabitants are US citizens, though they are barred from voting in presidential elections and have only one congressional representative with limited voting powers.

Maria struck Puerto Rico on September 20, 2017 and cut power to 80 per cent of the island. "This is a day where we should be focused on the people who will be affected by the hurricanes today, and it's him talking about himself a lot, and a lack of empathy and sort of a self absorption that we've seen a lot of the last two years".

"The people of Puerto Rico know the American government failed them", Velasquez said.
