As he braces for Hurricane Florence, President Donald Trump is stoking new outrage over his refusal to accept any blame for the relief effort following Puerto Rico's monster storm a year ago.

Several of the women of ABC's "The View" slammed President Donald Trump for his comments on the hurricane response in Puerto Rico - leading co-host Sunny Hostin to allege that the president and the government allowed people to die, as Mediaite reported. At least 3,000 people died because of Maria, yet Trump called relief efforts "an unsung success", and even doubled down on Wednesday, tweeting that the government "did an unappreciated great job in Puerto Rico.an inaccessible island".

The photos began circulating on social media Tuesday, the same day President Trump again praised the government's response to Maria during a meeting with top DHS and FEMA officials. Other, independent estimates place the number at 1,270 and 5,740, with financial damages from the storm exceeding $100 billion in damage and some rural residents still lacking power. "Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!"

The Republican president went on to accuse Democrats of inflating the death toll to make him look bad, without providing evidence. It was commissioned by Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló, and was conducted by experts at George Washington University's Milken Institute School of Public Health.
