Do Not Allow Donald Trump to Gaslight the Nation on the Hurricane Maria death toll!

On September 11, 2018, President Donald Trump claimed his administration’s response to Hurricane Maria, which killed approximately 3,000 people in Puerto Rico, was an “incredible unsung success.” On September 13, the President doubled down on his ignorance,
and took to Twitter to claim the high death toll is somehow rigged by Democrats in order to make him look bad. It was absolutely chilling for me to hear this President brag about his ability to oversee a disaster response when numerous researchers and scholars
have confirmed nearly 3,000 American citizens in Puerto Rico lost their lives as a result of Hurricane Maria. It was even more disturbing to see him allege Democrats are inflating the death count for political gain. It is exactly this sort of political gamesmanship
following a devastating natural disaster that cannot be permitted to happen ever again. We cannot permit the Commander in Chief to gaslight the nation when it comes to the deaths of thousands of our fellow citizens.

economic self-sufficiency.
