Puerto Rico mayor blames Donald Trump for soaring Hurricane Maria death count: ‘It’s a historic failing’ | News Sponsored by TrumpShop.net

Puerto Rico’s mayor of San Juan has sharpened her attacks against Donald Trump, blaming his administration for “structural negligence” that led to thousands of deaths in the wake of Hurricane Maria.  Carmen Yulín Cruz said the president was responsible for the federal government’s slow response to the deadly hurricane estimated to have killed nearly 3,000 people, during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on the one-year anniversary of the storm.  “This is President Trump’s Katrina,” the mayor said, referring to the catastrophic hurricane that struck the US in August 2005. “He can spin it all he wants — 3,000 people died on his watch.” Trump claims 3,000 people did not die in hurricane-hit Puerto Rico Ms Cruz has frequently criticised Mr Trump ever since Hurricane Maria’s impact was felt across the US territory, while the president has said he earned a “10 out of 10” for his government’s disaster recovery efforts. He’s also denied the revised death count from the storm of 2,975, claiming the study commissioned by the Puerto Rican government was a conspiracy created by Democrats to make him “look bad”.  The mayor’s latest comments arrived shortly after the deadly Hurricane Florence struck the Carolinas, Virginia and other parts of the country. Mr Trump travelled to impacted regions during the week after warning that the storm would be “tremendously big and a tremendously wet” hurricane. The president was restrained during his visit to North Carolina on Wednesday, serving as consoler-in-chief while touting the storm’s damage.  Bringing aid to Puerto Rico 1/20 Crew chief Kenney shelters under the blade of an HH-60 Blackhawk helicopter from 101st Airborne Division’s “Dustoff” unit preparing to take off during recovery efforts following Hurricane Maria, in Isla Grande, Puerto Rico, October 6, 2017 Reuters/Lucas Jackson 2/20 An HH-60 Blackhawk helicopter from 101st Airborne Division’s “Dustoff” unit takes off behind Crew Chief Alexander Blake and his fellow soldiers during recovery efforts following Hurricane Maria, in Morovis, October 5, 2017 Reuters/Lucas Jackson 3/20 Crew member Bynum stands in tropical rain as a HH-60 Blackhawk helicopter from 101st Airborne Division’s “Dustoff” unit prepares to take off during recovery efforts following Hurricane Maria, in Isla Grande, October 6, 2017 Reuters/Lucas Jackson 4/20 UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter pilot Chris Greenway receives a hug from a woman thanking him for water as he works with the First Armored Division’s Combat Aviation Brigade during recovery efforts following Hurricane Maria, in Verde de Comerio, October 7, 2017 Reuters/Lucas Jackson 5/20 A man carries a case of water away from an HH-60 Blackhawk helicopter after soldiers working with 101st Airborne Division’s “Dustoff” unit dropped off relief supplies during recovery efforts following Hurricane Maria, in Jayuya, October 5, 2017 Reuters/Lucas Jackson 6/20
