Trump says Puerto Rico should be proud for avoiding a 'real catastrophe like Katrina'

Now, I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you've thrown 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. Every death is a horror, but if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina and you look at the tremendous, hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people that died and you look at what happened here with really a storm that was just totally overbearing ... you can be very proud of all of your people, all of our people working together. 

President Trump
