Hurricane Donald: Trump Creates a New Twitter Storm

Trump caused outrage this week when he said without any evidence the 3,000 death toll was a move by Democrats to make him look "as bad as possible".

President TrumpDonald John TrumpPaul McCartney slams Trump in new song: "We've got a mad captain sailing this boat" George Conway rips Trump over tweet about Obama's "57 states" gaffe Pompeo doubles down on criticism of Kerry: The Iran deal failed, "let it go" MORE on Sunday praised the work of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and first responders in handling the initial effects of Hurricane Florence, declaring their efforts will only ramp up as the storm weakens. What we saw in Puerto Rico was a mass death of 3,000 people.

"In my opinion, what we've got to do is figure out why people die, from direct deaths, which is the wind, the water and the waves" and collapsed buildings, which he probably was that initial tally.

By identifying the preventable causes of these deaths, we can save lives the next time a fierce storm hits. The Harvard study was done differently, studies a different period of time versus the George Washington study.

But last Thursday, the Post published a story that referred to the "death toll" in Puerto Rico and said, "Trump denied large-scale casualties from the Puerto Rico hurricane".

Long gave other examples - increased heart attacks because of stress, people falling off their house trying to fix the roof or dying in auto crashes in intersections where the lights aren't working.

Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old Democrat expected to become the youngest woman ever elected to Congress on November 6, tweeted: "My own grandfather died in the aftermath of the storm".

She said her grandfather was in a medical facility in Puerto Rico and "passed away in the middle of the night" after the storm.

On CNN's State of the Union, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat who ousted U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley in a congressional district primary in June, strongly criticized the "neglect and government inaction" in the wake of Hurricane Maria, which she described as "the worst humanitarian crisis in modern American history".

Trump did not claim the count included every person who died on the island in the ensuing six months.

"I think we're at a point in time where social media has become the medium for getting out a message quickly and appropriately", said Matt Anthes, CEO of SociallyMined, a data company that helps companies use social media platforms. They are children with illnesses, elderly.

Reports by Politico and the Wall Street Journal claimed that DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen had asked for Long's resignation amid concerns over his lengthy commutes back home, something Long disputes ever happened. "I have never made - I would never intentionally violate any rules that I was aware of".
