Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló responded to President Donald J. Trump’s doubts about the death toll attributed to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.

Trump has questioned the veracity of a study which found that 3,000 people died, drawing outrage from many, including residents of the island.

On Friday, Rosselló tweeted: “Mr. President —  I’d very much be willing to walk you through the scientific process of the study and how @Gwtweets arrived at the excess mortality number estimate. There is no reason to underscore the tragedy we have suffered in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. In the meantime, I hope you consider sending a message of support to show you stand with all of the US Citizens in Puerto Rico that lost loved ones.  It would certainly be an act of respect and empathy.”
