Donald Trump Thinks 3,000 Dead Is “Incredible Unsung Success”

September 11, 2018

Trump said Tuesday that his administration is “totally prepared” as Hurricane Florence barrels toward the Carolinas and Virginia.

Asked what lessons he had learned from the federal response to Hurricane Maria’s devastation of Puerto Rico, Trump said that his administration’s handling of that effort was an “incredible unsung success.”

However, a Government Accountability Office report released last week found that the Federal Emergency Management Agency was stretched thin and faced “numerous challenges” and “complications” in its response to Hurricane Maria. Nearly 3,000 people are estimated to have died in five months after that storm.
