'Grossly inaccurate': 130 members of the House and Senate demand Trump apologize for refusing to accept Puerto Rico's death count
President Donald Trump in the Oval Office.

President Donald Trump has routinely denounced the number of deaths that happened in Puerto Rico as a result of Hurricane Maria. 


Most recently Trump denied that roughly 3,000 people died in Puerto Rico.

However, members of the House and Senate banded together to demand Trump apologize for his "grossly inaccurate" comments.

"We write to denounce your recent statements about the fatalities in Puerto Rico from Hurricanes Irma and Maria and their aftermath. These comments were grossly inaccurate, callous, embarrassing and beneath the dignity of the Office of the President of the United States. We call

on you to immediately apologize and set the record straight by publicly acknowledging the official death toll.
