The mayor of Ceiba, Angel Cruz Ramos, told CNN he's grateful for the generosity, but believes that too much water was delivered at the wrong time. Trump then added that the high death toll was a result of Democrats trying to make him look bad.

"3,000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico".

As for the Trump administration, more than half of federal emergency personnel in Puerto Rico were not qualified for their assigned tasks as of October 2017, a month after landfall, according to a September 5 report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office. Rossello rejected the findings of a different study that estimated more than 4,000 died, saying he found the GWU research with its lower number to be scientifically sound. "I think that Puerto Rico was an incredible, unsung success", he continued.

Thursday's tweets drew the ire of Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of Puerto Rico's capital, San Juan, who has sharply criticized both the president and his administration's response to Maria.

Earlier this week, Mr Trump hailed the United States response in Puerto Rico as "an incredible, unsung success".

The government had in the budget projected direct tax collection of Rs 11.5 lakh crore for 2018-19 fiscal. He also said the government will maintain the 100% capital expenditure for the year without any cut.

Trump began to focus on Hurricane Florence earlier this week, calling for an Oval Office briefing with the FEMA director to warn about the threat. That led the cable news coverage that evening, further angering the president, according to one of the people.

Cora said Trump's words were "disrespectful" to his home.

Some blamed the media.

The number of almost 3,000 was released last month after an independent study by the George Washington University (GWU) in July, which was commissioned by the governor of Puerto Rico.

"The attitude from the administration and the Republican Congress is unacceptable", she said at a U.S. Capitol news conference, flanked by other Democrats.

Browns to release troubled receiver Josh Gordon

With the island's medical, communications, and transportation systems in total collapse, the Puerto Rican government made a decision to stop counting shortly after the storm.

Hurricane Maria hit previous year as the Trump administration was feeling positive about the handling of massive hurricanes in Florida and Texas last summer.

No one would use such a foolish methodology except for political reasons. "This is about human beings".

The Federal Emergency Management Agency reportedly told the CBS News correspondent David Begnaud that it provided the water to the central government in response to Hurricane Maria in 2017, but it is unclear what kept the water from being distributed.

Desperate, Ramona's siblings tried to get her aboard the USNS Comfort, a Navy hospital ship that had arrived in Puerto on Rico Oct. 3. He also joyously tossed paper towels to a crowd of residents. "How is the hurricane now treated so differently, but the hurricane in Puerto Rico wasn't?" said Santos-Vasquez. We've seen conflicting information associated with the process of coming up with a realistic accounting of how many people died during and after the storm.
