Donald Trump will not let go Puerto Rico’s presidential primary on Sunday to go uncontested. The Republican front runner for the nomination sent a message on the occasion of the 99th anniversary of Puerto Ricans being granted American citizenship. The move came as ironic to some, who still believe the debunked rumor that Trump had threatened with revoking US citizenship of Puerto Ricans.
“I join the 3.6 million US citizens that live in this beautiful island, celebrating a date that is so important to all Puerto Ricans, and to all Americans as well,” said the magnate in a written statement.
In his message, the businessman highlighted the island’s natural beauties, but he established that “the best Puerto Rico has to offer is its people.”
“Many Puerto Ricans have contributed significantly to the United States in the fields of the arts, sports, culture, business, and above all, through the sacrifice and patriotism of a number of Puerto Ricans who have served in the armed forces of the United States. This dedication to the nation serves as an example to all,” he added.
With Marco Rubio announcing an event in the territory tomorrow, all signs indicate that the primary will not go unnoticed, or uncontested by the Republican candidates.
