Trump vs Puerto Rico

by Mar 25, 2021Politics, Trump

According to “The Lancet,” Trump and his administration exhibited open and relentless “hostility toward Puerto Ricans.”

“The Trump administration’s unremitting hostility toward Puerto Ricans was also reflected in its 2019 proposal to cut “excessive and unnecessary” food assistance for more than 1 million Puerto Ricans, and Trump’s threat to block disaster relief for floods in the US Midwest if the package also included funding for the hurricane recovery in Puerto Rico, a position he reversed just before the 2020 election—apparently to gain favor among Puerto Rican voters in Florida.”

Why the hostility toward the people of Puerto Rico? Could it have something to do with the fact that they don’t look like they came from Norway?
