President Trump's decision to oust the inspector general charged with watching over how coronavirus relief money is spent has lead to criticism.

Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney, chair of the House Committee on Oversight Reform, said Trump's ousting of the inspector general was an insult to taxpayers.

Trump implied on Tuesday, without evidence, that he was removing the inspector general because of bias.
