President Donald Trump warned the Carolinas as Hurricane Florance approached the eastern shores of the United States. In the briefing by federal agencies, Trump went on to sing his praises of what he said was a success in Puerto Rico.


Calling the federal response to Puerto Rico a "tremendous" achievement, Trump said, "I think that Puerto Rico was an incredible, unsung success."

A recent report revealed exactly the opposite. Nearly 3,000 Puerto Ricans died after Hurricane Maria hit, while under 100 died during the actual storm. The federal response was hung up on antiquated laws that prevent the island from bringing in assistance. Meanwhile, it was revealed some FEMA crates were never delivered or seriously delayed.
