Nice dodge. You didn't answer his original question. He wants to know (as do I) how "typical" is it to do this kind of calculation a year after a disaster?
Given the widespread loss of power and other essential needs it's not hard to imagine that the death toll was staggering. This has been an accepted number by politicians from both sides of the aisle. It's Trump who has decided to tweet out of the blue that all the dead Americans are fake and got made up by the Democrats. All of this despite a government sanctioned independent study by a highly reputable university on the hurricanes and their affects on Puerto Rico.
The whole "fake news" bullshit has always been terrible, but now we see him down playing the deaths of American Citizens and attributing it all to the Democrats. It's fucking insane.
