President Trump denied the death toll of nearly 3,000 from Hurricanes Maria and Irma, which swept across Puerto Rico a year ago, in a series of tweets Thursday morning. "3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico," he tweeted. "When I left the island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths."

Never turn down an opportunity to crap on Trump.
wanna address the actual topic? Trump is claiming that 3 thousand people did not die. He's claiming that the numbers came from Democrats.
Are either of those things true? Who do we "blame" for what Trump claims himself? And why are you complaining about people simply correcting his false claims. People died and this man is claiming they didn't.

Trump is right. Those people did not die during the hurricanes, They died in the aftermath. To this day they are finding supplies that the local PR government failed to disperse to the people. You have had several local politicians arrested and charged with corruption for benefitting from recovery funds they stole.

Trump shit out a filthy lie about the deaths of 3,000 Americans, blaming Democrats. To defend his lie to to lower yourself to that moral level.
