President Trump said the drought-stricken Dakotas are “better off” than cities flooded by Hurricane Harvey last month, and that his administration will make the drought there “go away.”“I know you have a little bit of a drought. They had the opposite, believe me,” Trump said during a tax reform speech in Mandan, N.D.“You’re better off. You are better off, they had the absolute opposite.”Trump also said he was surprised that droughts could happen “this far north.”
It’s embarrassing. It’s scary.
