The official seal of The Bronx.

“President Trump’s remarks about the death toll in Puerto Rico expose him for exactly what he is: a craven liar.

“His remarks this morning are absolutely sickening. We are not imagining our brothers and sisters who were lost in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. To say otherwise is simply disgusting. President Trump needs to accept that his administration failed in Puerto Rico. Basic human decency demands that the president stop pretending his response to this disaster was a success,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
