    President Donald Trump signaled Tuesday night that he wanted to “wipe out” Puerto Rico’s debt.

    “They owe a lot of money to your friends on Wall Street and we’re going to have to wipe that out,” Trump told Geraldo Rivera of Fox News. “You’re going to say goodbye to that. I don’t know if it’s Goldman Sachs, but whoever it is, you can wave goodbye to that.”

    Trump offered no specifics. This may be his biggest lie yet. We'll see...

    Funny,

    Texas, Florida and a shit ton of other states have far more debt...Texas has 3-4 times as much.

    Weird how we're not questioning Texas and how much they owe our federal government.

    Like it or not it may have to happen...we may have to absorb that debt. No other president would not support it. But this president will put in place real reform in PR....

    Texas and Florida get help but Puerto Rico is treated like shit? Texas and florida owe far more debt. Why the fuck should it matter anyway? People are dying.

    Trump makes it a point to their faces that they are in debt — while at the same time our national debt went up by a quarter of a trillion dollars since he’s been president.
