WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, reacting to President Donald Trump’s comment that Puerto Rico had thrown the U.S. budget “out of whack,” said on Tuesday Trump should stop blaming Puerto Ricans for the hurricane that devastated the island.
“Mr. President, stop the blame game. Start making the situation better. That’s your job,” Schumer told reporters.
