Donald Trump Says Puerto Rico Deaths Were Made Up: Does Ron DeSantis Agree?

This morning, President Trump tweeted that contrary to, well, the truth, 3,000 people did not die in 2017 from the hurricanes that devastated Puerto Rico. This raises an obvious question – does Trump’s biggest supporter, Ron DeSantis, agree? DeSantis has previously praised Trump’s handling of the Puerto Rico hurricanes.

“Ron DeSantis has staked his entire candidacy around his record of being a spineless yes-man for Donald Trump in Washington,” said American Bridge spokesperson Zach Hudson. “Considering he is on record praising Trump’s handling of the storms that devastated Puerto Rico, DeSantis needs to answer if he agrees with Donald Trump that 3,000 people did not die in the Puerto Rico hurricanes.”
