As Hurricane Florence bears down on the US, President Trump was blasted online after he said that the death count for Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico past year was raised by Democrats to make him look bad.
"Those are just the facts of what happens when a disgusting hurricane hits an isolated place like an island", Ryan said when asked about Trump's tweet.
The report came almost a year after a much-maligned visit to Puerto Rico by Trump two weeks after Maria, where he implied that residents should be "proud" that the official death toll at the time was just 16 people, far lower than that of a "real catastrophe, like Katrina".
"Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers like 3,000", Trump wrote.
"What is offensive to many of us is that even though the president dropped the ball, he is now doing a victory dance in the end zone".
Gutierrez conceded that "the massive power of the storm was compounded by decades of neglect from Washington", which he said "didn't happen overnight and didn't happen on President Trump's watch". "Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!".
There is no evidence to back up Trump's tweets that politics played a role in calculating the death toll and the White House has not commented on the message from the President.
Mr Gutierrez, who is of Puerto Rican heritage, was involved in the United States territory's recovery operation.
Brock Long, the head of the US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), warned that Florence could "kill a lot of people".

Stewart was being interviewed Wednesday about Trump's earlier statements that his administration's handling of the hurricane that hit the USA territory was "an incredible, unsung success" and "one of the best jobs that's ever been done".
