The Puerto Rican government recently raised the official death count from the awful storm and aftermath to almost 3,000, but Trump cast doubt on that figure, claiming the Democrats inflated the number to make him look "as bad as possible". He falsely claimed the number had been inflated by Democrats "in order to make me look as bad as possible".

Colbert read Trump's earlier tweet on Puerto Rico in a sing-song voice, and then cited a George Washington University study that claimed 2,975 people died in the months after the storm hit.

Mr Trump said people who died for any reason - "like old age" - had been added to the total. As time went by it did not go up by much. "Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Green, Dalton hook up for 3 TDs to lead Bengals past Ravens
There certainly is potential, even though the Bengals have spent the past two games treading the line between winning and losing. Dixon did manage to score a rushing touchdown along with fellow Raven running backs, Alex Collins and Javorius Allen .

Colbert, host of "The Late Show", said the president appeared to be "laser-focused on hurricane response this week - just not this one", referring to Hurricane Florence, which is bearing down on the Carolinas today. Wednesday, Trump called her "totally incompetent" when he tweeted another defense of how the emergency was managed.

After that visit, Trump said Puerto Ricans were fortunate that Maria was not a catastrophe on the scale of Hurricane Katrina, which hit the US Gulf Coast.

"I understand the president's frustration in the sense that he has worked very hard to help Puerto Rico. that the effort to help them has been herculean", Francis said. All told, about 1800 people died in that 2005 storm. A range of other studies have placed the death toll estimate anywhere between 500 and 6,000.

Apple might delay the release of the 6.1-inch 'iPhone Xr'
Accordingly, the 6.1-inch version among the new Apple smartphones will not be called iPhone XS Light, but iPhone XC. Additionally, a poster rumored to be from another top carrier, China Telecom, also points to dual-SIM iPhones.

If the new figures are accurate, Hurricane Maria is the deadliest storm to have hit Puerto Rico since the 1899 San Ciriaco hurricane. Not only because it seemed indifferent to Puerto Rican suffering, but also because it is demonstrably false.

"My teams knew about it but first they will say, "no we cannot use them, ' months later water was no good for human consumption", he tweeted". A USA territory since 1898, Puerto Rico's inhabitants are citizens, though they can not vote in presidential elections and have only one congressional representative with limited voting powers.

"The job that FEMA and law enforcement and everybody did, working along with the governor in Puerto Rico, I think was tremendous".

U.S. voices concern over China's crackdown on Muslims
They are also forced to learn Mandarin and sing praises of the Chinese Communist Party, according to the report. Xinjiang is home to over half of China's 24 million Muslims.

Trump said Wednesday that his administration is prepared for Hurricane Florence, a storm barrelling toward the Carolina coastline, and insisted that his administration's widely panned response to the devastation in Puerto Rico past year was an 'unappreciated great job'.
