Aftermath of Hurricane Maria

President of the United States Donald Trump denies that 3,000 people died in the aftermath of the 2017 hurricane, advancing a number of "6 to 18 deaths". He further claims that the Democrats somehow altered the numbers.

An independent study, commissioned by the island's government, found that an estimated 2,975 people died in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.
