In an interview on MSNBC this morning, White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley referred to Puerto Rico as “that country” twice. Host Hailie Jackson responded, “Trump says Puerto Rican’s are taking from the USA. Puerto Rico is part of the United States. People who live in Puerto Rico are U.S. Citizens. You’re rolling your eyes and I don’t know why you’re rolling your eyes.”
Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory.
