Ben Carson Contradicts Trump About Puerto Rico

Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson and Representative Maxine Waters discussed the crisis in Puerto Rico during the House Financial Services Committee hearing on Thursday, in which Carson seemed to contradict statements made by President Donald Trump. Waters asked Carson if he agreed with Trump that hurricane aid to Puerto Rico would not continue indefinitely. Carson said, “I think that our job is to make sure that we take care of the disaster that has occurred. […] Of course it should not be abandoned.” When Waters asked about Trump’s accusations that Puerto Rico is to blame for its financial crisis, Carson said, “I don’t think it is beneficial to go around shaming people in general.” Waters said she was “glad to hear [Carson doesn’t] agree with the president.”
