Shifting gears a bit: why is there virtually no response from the Trump Administration with regards to Puerto Rico? It is a true disaster that makes what Houston has gone through look tame by comparison (and that's not intended to downplay what Houston residents are experiencing).  There is essentially no way off the island, and basic services (power, water) will be out months even with an immediate and full-fledged response -- and it could be a year or more without it.

Is it because it's a territory?  Trump signals he'd be willing to go to war over threats to Guam, which is a much smaller and more distant territory, so maybe not.  Something else?

Fewer white people?

You guys need to make everything about race I see.

Sad...

This is why Trump is going to be president again in 2020.
2020?  I'm not sure he will be prez in 2019, or even 2018.  Again? Ha! After Mueller kicks him to the curb, he's going to rise like a phoenix from the ashes?  Doubtful.  When you've been the worst president in US history, you don't re-invent yourself, you just fade away...watch his house-of-cards tumble, and step aside so you don't get caught up in the pile of xxxx that will be the avalanche of his downfall.
he's one of the best in history. Maybe to crooked Hillary Supporters he's bad though. Thankfully that's a minority of people in this country. 2020 another trump victory
Try again.  Hillary won the popular vote by nearly 4 million.
the popular vote wasn't a contest, so how did she win? What was her prize?
I think Tazz's post was pointing out that when you said "Thankfully that is a minority of the people in this country" that you, once again, are making things up and claiming alternative facts to be true.

based on what exactly?  I'm genuinely curious what your measuring stick for greatness is.

He's nominated a Supreme court justice that was approved because his party controls congress.  any other Republican that may have won that last election would have gotten the same results.  (this shouldn't have come to pass -- Congress should have at least vetted Garland when he was nominated.  He was qualified for the spot and nominated well within Obama's time in office)

I'm not aware of any other 'accomplishments' by Trump while in office.  help me understand where you're coming from on this rating of Trump

what are you saying? trump is now racist against whites? Puerto rico is 75% white. Houston is 49% white.
Just to correct your facts: almost every person born in and living in Puerto Rico consider themselves Puertoricans and Latino, regardless of skin color. I should know. I was married to a Puertorican for 28 years, visited relatives down there countless times spending weeks at a time there. And my exs family was white skinned on one side of the family and darker skinned on the other.

Puerto Rico is not 75% white. Its nearly 100% Puertorican.

Puerto Rican is not a race, its a nationality. Puerto Rico is 75% white.

Too many quips and one-liners, too little substance. This thread is locked until nick, Dons and I can figure out what to do with it.
