President Donald Trump in the Oval Office.

With Hurricane Florence bearing down on the Carolinas and Virginia, President Donald Trump praised his administration's response to last year's hurricanes in Puerto Rico.


The official estimate of fatalities from the hurricanes is currently at 2,975.

"What happened in Puerto Rico?" Trump was asked in the Oval Office.

"I think Puerto Rico was incredibly successful," Trump claimed.

Trump repeatedly and erroneously claimed that Puerto Rico did not have power before the storms hit.

"I think Puerto Rico was an incredible unsung success," Trump bragged.
