The White House said President Trump was responding to the "misinformation" put out by the "liberal media".

After President Trump said Thursday morning that "3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico", the White House set about doing damage control and insisted later in the afternoon that Trump was merely responding to the "misinformation and false accusations" perpetrated by the "liberal media and the San Juan Mayor".
