Trump Lies About $91 Billion In Hurricane Aid For Puerto Rico

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to call politicians in Puerto Rico “incompetent.” Trump also lied about the 91 billion dollars of hurricane aid for the U.S. territory. Trump claimed that is “more money than has ever been gotten for a hurricane before.”

Trump spokesman Hogan Gidley claimed on MSNBC that the U.S. territory had received more disaster relief aid than any other state or territory — $91 billion — but MSNBC host Hallie Jackson called him out (video below).

Trump was fact-checked the Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler and writer Nick Jack Pappas on Twitter.
