As a hurricane neared the coast of the Carolinas, Trump went to twitter to defend the slow actions of his administration when Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico a year prior. He stated that the death toll was only 6 to 18 dead after his visit following the storm, he also rejected the government’s assessment that the storm had claimed nearly 3,000 lives. He also tweeted "If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics."
