I have been reading the comments and just SMH.
How about this, several of you want to rant and rave about "corruption" in Puerto Rico and "the left blaming all the problems in PR on Trump". And that is just simply being willfully ignorant. Do you even know what the protests are about?
To begin, the "left" didn't blame ALL of PR's problems on Trump or even the GOP BTW - but be completely honest they BOTH contributed significantly to most of the biggest problems in PR today. Whether it was Trump and the abject failure of disaster relief or congress's double standard not providing the same kind of relief as red states get or for that matter going further back and limiting PR's options on debt relief unlike what states enjoy - without representation I will add.
From what I have read/heard they are not all about corruption per se but rather politicians behaving very badly privately and getting caught doing it. Bad jokes about having people murdered, misogynism, trying to manipulate the media, the mayor of San Juan, etc. Yes, there were elements to what the Governor and his circle talked about that were corruption in my opinion but that wasn't the only thing that PO'd the people.
What is the Difference between Puerto Rico and the GOP? The people of Puerto Rico want them OUT in a huge way and the GOP voters elected Trump knowing it so F--- all of you that voted for Trump and are criticizing them because you are being blatant hypocrites by voting a man who blatantly commits crimes into office and keeping him there (yes obstruction in the least is a crime and you would have to be a tool to say he didn't) and it's crickets from most of you. Yes, we have our own issues with corruption in the 50 states and it is on BOTH sides and even though you mindless hypocrites point it out all the time although some like to imagine it is ONLY a problem on the left when in fact it seems to be a bigger problem on the right.
As usual - we need to get most money out of politics. By most I mean: Corporate money, eliminate Super PACs, eliminate secret anonymoous donors, cap donation amounts to PACs and candidates and parties, greatly reduce lobbyists and lobbyist roles (like writing the laws congress votes on). I don't care about term limits because frankly having people that understand how to make government function in office is not a bad thing and with money removed they will be elected on their message and their performance. And they should also be kept from lobbying after they are done serving to help keep the system less corrupt.
