Not only Trump, but historically the United States Government (USG) has been a racist!
Trump tries to hide his racism towards Puerto Ricans by repeating that Puerto Rico’s electrical grid was in critical condition before Hurricane Maria hit the island on September 20, 2017. That is absolutely true! But this the rest of the story. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8ixnnJU244
Puerto Rico has been bankrupt by the USG since 1898. Puerto Rico does not have the resources to govern herself for the Puerto Ricans, because the USG has exploited her to the maximum for the last 120 years!
What people call the Puerto Rico Government is in realty the administration of the colony of Puerto Rico for the USG. That is why everything in Puerto Rico, including the electrical grid, is in critical condition! All of the laws that govern Puerto Ricans are against them, and in favor of the USG!
Another thing that Trump keeps repeating to hide his racism is that the reason the USG took as long as it did to help Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria is the fact that she is in a big ocean. But, that same big ocean was no impediment for the USG to militarily invade Puerto Rico using 1898 technology to make her its colony.
Most people are unaware that the USG classified Puerto Ricans as an inferior race in 1898. That led the USG to put Puerto Rico in the category of the non-incorporated territories. These territories are the ones that will never become a state of the Union. So when a US president says that the USG is willing to give Puerto Ricans whatever political status that they want, that is a lie! The USG will never give US statehood to Puerto Rico. https://www.facebook.com/Maxima940/videos/263204177654558/
Moreover, The USG has historically refused to allow Puerto Rico to be decolonized. The USG tried to buy Puerto Rico from Spain several times before 1898, but Spain always refused.
Then, ignoring the fact that Puerto Rico had obtained her sovereignty in 1897 from Spain via the Autonomic Charter, the USG militarily invaded Puerto Rico to colonize her on July 25, 1898.
How important is having Puerto Rico as a colony to the USG? The USG has violated the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism for the past 73 years! The USG has ignored 37 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. The USG recruits more US soldiers from Puerto Rico than any of the 50 states in its Union. The US government forced its citizenship on Puerto Ricans in order to divert their natural loyalty to their homeland to the USG. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
Join the permanent protest to force the USG to comply with the democratic will of the international community, because those who want to rule the world don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697349163904877/
