Trump Says About Harvey: ‘There Has Never Been Anything So Expensive In Our Country’s History’

Donald Trump said on Tuesday that Hurricane Harvey has been the most expensive thing in the history of the United States.

Trump said during a meeting with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and other Texas officials, “Probably there has never been anything so expensive in our country’s history, we’ve never done anything so historic in terms of damage and in terms of ferocity as what we’ve witnessed with Harvey.”

“This is long term. Nobody has ever seen anything this long and nobody has ever seen this much water. The wind was pretty horrific,” Trump added, noting that the name Harvey sounds “like such an innocent name … but it’s not innocent.”

Bloomberg News predicted the cost of Harvey at about $42 billion right now, a number that will rise as water levels keeps rising.

Hurricane Katrina has been the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history at an estimated cost of $160 billion.

Trump is always talking about having the biggest numbers, but this isn’t a number to boast about. He’s talking about the cost in damages of Harvey as if he was competing with former presidents on who had the worst natural disaster in history.
