    In most storms, the number of deaths in determined strictly by the number of bodies that are killed in the storm.

    If you are walking along a street during a hurricane, and a refrigerator is flying down the street too, and you get hit in the head by the fridge and die, you are a victim of the hurricane.

    Ditto if you are in an area that gets 4 feet of rain and you drown.

    But the Maria deaths that President Trump is being blamed for are just a statistical exercise where the number of "excess" deaths are compared with the number of "normal" deaths and the excess blamed on Trump

    Its a load of shit, designed to hurt the President that has nothing to do with reality.

    when the US killed hundreds of thousands with the Hiroshima & Nagasaki A-bombs the death counts were compiled from immediate deaths, and deaths related to radiation poisoning, burns, broken bones, infections, cancers, anything related to residual effects resulting in deaths.

    I don't see why a death toll count from a hurricane would be any different. Everyone that dies from the effects of a hurricane will not be dying right off the bat.

    Trump is WRONG as he typically is wrong about a lot.

    Ok----but Trump did not DROP the Hurricane. People die in snow storms----
    for all kinds of reasons------car accidents, hypothermia (Typically ---a drunk who
    falls asleep in a snow drift) "I ran out of insulin" >>> diabetic ketoacidosis.
    I have never seen the death toll blamed on GOVERNOR CUOMO

    Trump FAILED to properly have emergency efforts marshalled into PR to handle the resulting effects of the hurricane.

    That is why Trump owns the 3K deaths, because he failed to properly have the needed resources available to address the aftermath.

    3K US citizens died on Trump's watch. That is a PR 9/11.

    I have worked in large hospitals----most of my adult life-----Deaths in
    NATURAL DISASTER is called "ACT OF GOD" The statement
    that "he failed to have needed resources available" is pure conjecture---
    RESOURCES FOR LOCAL DISASTER is a function of THE STATE. In
    fairly rare cases-----the place can be declared a "DISASTER AREA"--and
    then, sometimes, the federal government does something

    Ah yes, moving figures around to pretend that people didn't die.

    Trump had ample ability to have the responsible agencies make the appropriate responses, pre & post Maria.
    Trump failed to do that.
    We have to remember that this is PR, an island full of 'brown' people. Trump likes white folk.
    These people are US citizens BUT they have no voting rights for say, a US POTUS election.
    Trump had no reason to make the proper response to Maria because he knew he would not take a hit politically.
    Trump allowed US citizens to die because he is a politician.
    This crap response by Trump would not have happened on the US mainland, or Hawaii, where folks can vote for a POTUS election.

    The PR Democrats first said that it was 16, then 64, then 5000, and then 3000 deaths.
    The American taxpayers forgave $10 billion in loans to PR and gave them $32 billion in aid.
    The crooked Dem politicians have been caught hoarding relief supplies.
    The PR Democrats are liars, greedy and incompetent.
    But of course the Press is using the Hurricane to trash President Trump.
