During the U.S president first visit after Hurricane Maria, he expressed that the government had done a good job because at that time the death toll was 64. However, media and citizen reports had a very different number counts. It was not until de Harvard Report that revealed that the actual number was 4,645 that the government started to admit that they numbers where probably wrong. George Washington University report, which it came a couple of months after the Harvard report expose e death toll of more than 3,000. U.S President reaction to it was totally ignoring the death toll and even saying that people did not die. The original picture was taken by Mario Tama/Getty Images (2017).
