Trump Chides Puerto Rico Over Cost of Hurricane Recovery: ‘You’ve Thrown Our Budget a Little Out of Whack’

President Trump is in Puerto Rico Tuesday to address the response and recovery efforts, and at one point he made an odd aside when mentioning Mick Mulvaney.

As he brought up the Office of Management and Budget director, the President said, “I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you’re throwing our budget a little out of whack, because we’ve spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico, and that’s fine, we’ve saved a lot of lives.”
