United States President Trump said that he would definitely not support Puerto Rico for statehood, because Puerto Ricans are mean to him. Click on the following link to watch the video: https://youtu.be/nd6SkVYlQio
There are a lot of reasons for Puerto Ricans to be mean to Trump and the United States Government (USG). Let’s start at the beginning.
The USG militarily invaded Puerto Rico to take away Spain’s last remaining colonies. The USG classified Puerto Ricans as an inferior race, and proceeded to create a way to prevent Puerto Rico from ever becoming a state of the Union.
The USG created the category of the non incorporated territories to put Puerto Rico in. These are the territories that will never be a state of the United States (US). Who is being mean to whom? Trump is so ignorant that he probably doesn’t know the history of how Puerto Rico became a US colony. https://www.facebook.com/Maxima940/videos/263204177654558/
I wonder if Trump even knows that the USG is in violation of the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism. I wonder if he knows that his government has ignored 37 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
So, if Trump would never consider statehood for Puerto Rico, why doesn’t he then consider complying with international law? That would be the honorable thing for him to do. But, that is the point! Trump won’t, because he would rather do the dishonorable thing of continuing to exploit Puerto Rico forever! And Trump wonders, why Puerto Ricans are mean to him!
Join the permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with the will of the international community, because those who are mean first and want people to love them for it don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697349163904877/
