Five Decades of White Backlash "President Trump is the embodiment of over 50 years of resistance to the policies Martin Luther King Jr. fought to enact" - The Atlantic.

From your linked Atlantic article:
Quote:
denying applications of black and Puerto Rican applicants

So we indeed do know at least part the reason for Mr. Trumps non existent response to Hurricane Maria. It’s genetically and familia-l inspired.

Plus “they” are overly tan and even if “they" could vote in US elections they would never cast their ballots for the likes of Colonel Mustard.

He knows that. They know that. Although I am somewhat surprised Mr. Trump does not purchase (through a shell company) some Puerto Rican beachfront property to construct a branded Trump hotel on.......Lo siento... perdoname por favor, I did not mean he actually purchase the property at a fire sale price but rather simply lend his good trademark name to it.

Let some other sucker actually take on the liability.

Russian bankers would be ready, willing, and able to “lend” a hand...... If it weren’t for that pesky Mr. Mueller poking about.

He could get a screaming deal right now and he knows it.

I don't think that ever entered his "mind". Your comment is more in line with conservative strategists thinking, not with what a narcissist would "think".

Probably thinks Puerto Rico is another of those sh*ithole countries. It's all full of Hispanics, for Gawd Sakes! On the other hand, if you built a resort to cater to rich mainland Hispanics, they would not be put off by everybody speaking Spanish! And less drug cartel kidnappings than Mexico, where I won't even go anymore.

I wonder if you could get rich Cubanos from Miami to go Puerto Rico on vacation. Maybe not. Maybe Miami has everything Puerto Rico has and more. Oh, I know: Legalize weed! Get all the potheads to go for a High As A Kite week at Trump's Acapulco Gold Resort.
