The bottles were provided by the US Federal Emergency Management Agency and turned over to the central government previous year, according to the CBS News correspondent David Begnaud, who first reported on the revelation.

The official figure was released last month after an independent study.

Santiago, 40, can afford to pay only $500 to $800 a month with his job driving cars for an auction house.

Jason Ortiz with the Connecticut Puerto Rican Agenda said he is also disgusted at the president for blaming the Democrats in his second tweet. A federal judge in MA set Friday as the deadline for the vouchers to end after denying an effort to force FEMA to continue the program.

Three Democrats who were part of the delegation, Reps. Nearly 400 families were using the vouchers on the island. "Pretty sure he died of old age, '" he continued. She is staying in Florida, where she has work as a line cook at Walt Disney World, and where the couple's oldest son, 11-year-old Alexander, is doing well in school.

There was a higher and more persistent risk of death for people living in "low socioeconomic development municipalities" while men aged 65 and over "experienced continuous elevated risk of death through February". Bob Cortes, R-Altamonte Springs, his campaign's Puerto Rico outreach chair.

"I don't see any scenario where those tweets are helpful to anyone on the Republican ticket", said David Johnson, a longtime GOP consultant and former executive director of the state Republican Party.

A photographer said Tuesday that a stockpile of bottled water he saw on a tarmac in Puerto Rico a year ago was still there during a recent trip. Deepest sympathies and warmth go out to the families and friends of the victims.

Trump began to focus on Hurricane Florence earlier this week, calling for an Oval Office briefing with the FEMA director to warn about the threat.

Donald Trump is obsessed with coverage about his response to Hurricane Maria and angry over footage showing him tossing paper towels into a crowd in Puerto Rico, a new report claims.


Stephen Colbert of The Late Show began his nightly monologue by demonizing POTUS' lack of response to Hurricane Florence, a superstorm now working its way through the Carolinas and his hyper focus on Maria, a storm that took place nearly a year ago.

That was not original material, being the remarks made on Fox News by Geraldo Rivera, to whom Trump drew attention in the tweet.

Cora said before last night's game in Boston: 'To be tweeting about 3,000 people and be efficient, it's actually disrespectful for my country.

They were pre-positioned with swift water and urban search and rescue teams in the storm zone and ready to step in when states called for help.

But more than two dozen households in MA who don't qualify for the state program will become homeless Friday, Plata-Nino said.

Santos-Vasquez said the president's numbers are wrong. "It didn't have to be this way".

But the president choosing to "add salt to the wounds", as Pelosi described it, only underscored her message that the federal response to Hurricane Maria has been woefully inadequate.

Conducted by George Washington University, the study Trump is attempting to discredit as a Democratic plot was commissioned by the Puerto Rican government, which revised its earlier Hurricane Maria death toll to 2,975 after the study was published in August.

There is no indication Trump raised "billions" to help rebuild the island and the government's Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema) has said its response was strained after responding to two other major hurricanes weeks before Maria.
