Trump Boasts About His ‘Great Job’ on Hurricane Florence, Says Dems Will Soon Tell ‘Total Lie’ That Response Was Weak

Donald Trump is already attacking Democrats for any potential criticism of his administration’s response to Hurricane Florence along the mid-Atlantic coast.

“Right now, everybody is saying what a great job we are doing with Hurricane Florence – and they are 100% correct,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

“But don’t be fooled, at some point in the near future the Democrats will start ranting that FEMA, our Military, and our First Responders, who are all unbelievable, are a disaster and not doing a good job,” he continued. “This will be a total lie, but that’s what they do, and everybody knows it!”

Trump’s unprompted attacks against Democrats on Tuesday come less than a week after he claimed without evidence that the party was responsible for inflating the death toll of last year’s Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico to make him “look as bad as possible.”

The president doubled down on his unfounded claim that 3,000 people did not die in Maria, despite the Puerto Rican government officially adopting the findings of a George Washington University study that said as much.

The government-commissioned study estimated that 2,975 people died in the six months immediately following the storm. Puerto Rican officials officially raised the death toll from 64 to 2,975 as a result.

Twitter quickly called out Trump:
