From Morning Report, 7:50 am on 30 August 2018

Puerto Rico's San Juan mayor says the Trump administration effectively killed thousands through neglect during Hurricane Maria. Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz blamed Donald Trump, federal officials and Puerto Rican officials for not providing more assistance during and after the hurricane. The death toll was yesterday raised from 64 to almost 3000 after new research for the Puerto Rican government emerged.
