They should never be let off the hook but in this case they are correct Trump’s own words and tweets speak for themselves
Trump defaulted on payments for his Puerto Rico golf course, leaving the territory with a $33 million tax debt
26 September, 2017
On Monday night, Donald Trump finally broke his near-deafening silence on the devastating situation in Puerto Rico with a series of tweets that tried to switch the narrative away from the fact that millions of people in the U.S. territory could be without power for up to six months and instead play up the island’s massive debt. But one thing the president failed to mention is the part he played in that mounting financial crisis.
Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble..
The Democrats want to shut government if we don't bail out Puerto Rico and give billions to their insurance companies for OCare failure. NO!
“Puerto Ricans are tax-paying, American citizens, though it isn’t surprising that Donald Trump clearly doesn’t know those non-alternative facts. Trump is simply lying: the negotiations being discussed are not a ‘bailout,’ but would help provide desperately needed access to healthcare for seniors and children on the island. Instead of using Puerto Rican families as scapegoats and bargaining chips for the disastrous Republican budget process that will likely lead to a government shutdown, he should pay back the nearly $33 million he owes Puerto Rican taxpayers after yet another one of his businesses defaulted on the island.”
