Trump’s comments blaming Puerto Rico for its storm damage seem due to his golf course bankruptcy

This week, Trump’s attacking the NFL was perhaps yet another deflection, but it may have come closer to Agent Orange’s self-interest by omission.

It now makes more sense that he seemed to avoid mentioning the storm damage emergency in Puerto Rico,

Quite the opposite … mentioning Puerto Rico tarnishes his brand.

Rather, it was the site of yet another business failure, and does explain his tweets trashing the banks, infrastructure, and territorial debt.

It is always about him and his money.

When the Trump International Golf Club in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, filed for bankruptcy in July 2015 — just a month after Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign — Trump’s family did everything they could to distance themselves from the failed project. “This has absolutely nothing to do with Trump. This is a separate owner. We purely manage the golf course,” Eric Trump told Bloomberg at the time.

Trump golf course went bankrupt in Puerto Rico, so he is exacting revenge on the territory by refusing aid due all Americans.
