... six weeks before the presidential election ...

Operative point on the timing of this aid.

But I gotta ask, when does "aid" become "attempted bribery"?

These are the things that make it very difficult to unseat an incumbent president, which is why it seldom happens.

You can take Trump's promises to the bank.
Where they will laugh at you.

If dime-store slurring Mussolini wins reelection, that money will magically be redirected to the wall, or more likely into his pocket.

If Puerto Rican voters are dumb enough to switch their votes to the man that did deprive their island of aid when they needed it then they deserve the duplicity which will follow. If Trump wins the election, truse me, he will prevent that money from ever flowing to brown people. He hates Puerto Ricans and everyone who isn't lilly white. Don't be fooled, nothing has changed except he needs your votes, If you are brown he still hates you because he is a racist. Don't believe me: Then you just don't want to accept the truth.

PR will never see a dime of that money unless Biden is elected.

Trump Finally Approves Aid to Puerto Rico

Quite a few Puerto Ricans in New York and Florida. New York doesn't count, Florida does... "bigly." That's what Trumputin's advisors told him, so he is doing what he does best - bribing the people he needs with other people's money.

He's only buying votes now...

So blatantly obvious, you'd have
to be a Moron or a Republican not
to see it.

But then again I repeat myself...
