Statement from Speaker Heastie on President Trump's Remarks on the Death Toll in Puerto Rico

President Trump's remarks regarding the death toll in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria are disgraceful and beneath the dignity of the office of the President of the United States. This is extremely disrespectful to the 3,000 lives lost and their families that continue to rebuild a year later. Instead of inaccurate and senseless tweeting, the President should focus on taking the necessary actions to provide more resources and relief. I join with my fellow Americans to condemn these horrific remarks.
