(CNN) -- President Donald Trump made his first comments about the false ballistic missile alert sent out by Hawaiian authorities, more than a day after the mistaken alert sent residents into a panic. "They made a mistake," he said Sunday, commending authorities for taking responsibility for what happened, which was blamed on an emergency worker hitting the wrong template during a drill.
