Trump rejects Puerto Rico hurricane latest death toll

Facing criticism over his handling of the hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico last year, US President Donald Trump has accused rival Democrats of inflating the number of people killed there.

An independent study commissioned by the Puerto Rican government had concluded about 3 000 people died.

Trump has rejected that death toll.
