Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, ripped President Donald Trump for dedicating a golf trophy to victims of the recent hurricanes, comparing him to Marie Antoinette.

Trump's weekend activities as Puerto Rico attempts to recover from Hurricane Maria have drawn much criticism, including two comparisons to the French queen Marie Antoinette, who is famously said to have uttered "let them eat cake" after hearing of a shortage of bread.

"On behalf of all of the people of Texas, and all of the people — if you look today and see what is happening, how horrible it is but we have it under really great control — Puerto Rico and the people of Florida who have really suffered over this last short period of time with the hurricanes, I want to just remember them," Trump said on Sunday as he presented the trophy at the President's Cup golf tournament in New Jersey, according to The Hill.

"And we're going to dedicate this trophy to all of those people that went through so much that we love — a part of our great state, really part of our great nation."
