Trump Vows To “Wipe Out” Puerto Rican Debt [VIDEO]

Talking Points Memo reports:

“We are going to work something out. We have to look at their whole debt structure,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News that aired Tuesday night. “You know they owe a lot of money to your friends on Wall Street. We’re gonna have to wipe that out. That’s gonna have to be — you know, you can say goodbye to that. I don’t know if it’s Goldman Sachs but whoever it is, you can wave good-bye to that.”

Puerto Rico has $74 billion in debt and has begun to default on its debt over the past couple years as the island has struggled with budget deficits. Puerto Rico’s financial situation leaves the island in a poor position to pay for a large recovery effort without help from the federal government.

  • Blake Mason

    Literally talks out his ass.

    • bambinoitaliano

      He would need that paper towels he tossed out back.

    • Gustav2

      Remember President Trump also said he’d never cut Medicare, Medicaid or Social Security. He said that everyone would have better and cheaper coverage under Trumpcare

  • bkmn

    More bullshit from the bullshitter in chief. 1 minute after he said that he probably had one of his GS advisors whisper in his ear that this will never happen

    • Gustav2

      Unless Republicans figure out they will lose Florida when the influx of refugees (citizens) move and vote.

    • JackFknTwist

      A promise from Trump/turd has about as much credibility as a British promise.

    • Gerry Fisher

      One of the most astute things that Ann Coulter said was that Trump isn’t a liar, he’s a bullshitter. Time and experience seem to be proving her right.

  • Tawdry D’Tails

    Math is hard…

  • Bob_Barnes

    Wiping out Puerto Rico will accomplish that.

    • Todd20036

      Yup, just as Hitler nearly wiped out anti-Semitism in Europe.

  • lymis

    More proof that other people’s money is just a game to him.

    How do you reconcile huge tax cuts to gazillionaires and corporations with casually wiping out billions of dollars in debt?

    Pave Puerto Rico and build a bunch of Russian-funded casinos? Make it the money-laundering capital of the Western Hemisphere?

    • Uncle Mark

      The GOP solution is to privatize the whole island. The Russians will buy the whole island cheap. They’ve been looking for a new base in the Western Hemisphere, since losing Cuba.

  • Stephen Elliot Phillips

    Liar in chief.
    PR is being looted by hedge fund/tax haven vultures. Yeah their debt will be absolved once the entire island has become a serfdom owned by mnuchkin and gang

  • Gustav2

    Did he ask his cabinet members from Goldman Sachs about this? They lobbied against it the last time it was in front of Congress.

    • Rolf

      If he actually does this (and considering his track record, it’s probably never going to happen) he will be assassinated or impeached within weeks.

      • Gustav2

        From inside the White House Cabinet Room!

        • bambinoitaliano

          I can imagine a comedy skit play out in that.

  • Rocco

    With what, the paper towels he was tossing around? Lol…

    • bambinoitaliano

      That’s a million dollar paper towel!

  • Bob Conti

    Had that $1M “personal” donation happened yet?

    • Jeffg166

      He’ll get back to you on that.

      • Uncle Mark

        I wish someone would follow up by saying either, “That’s what you said last time,” OR “We all know that means ‘No'”

    • Joe in PA

      Bwahahahaha.

    • Gustav2

      They are trying to make it harder to track by saying they have given money to various relief organizations.

      • Joe in PA

        “Says who???”

        • Gustav2

          That Huckabee person.

    • Karl Dubhe

      Why did he shave his pits?

      WTF?

      • Todd20036

        personal choice. Like getting a tattoo.
        I shave my pits, wax my legs and crotch.
        It’s a look.

        • barrixines

          I admire your industry. It takes me about forty minutes just to get the hair out of my ears.

          • shellback

            That made me laugh. Thanks.

          • doninkansas

            Same here. I have wondered what ear dreads would look like, but then I remember I do so enjoy listening to music and that much hair would basically make me deaf. So I keep up with the trimming and cutting. Which can be a bit difficult as I have very shaky hands (tremors from my anti-rejection meds, or so my nephrologist says).

  • bambinoitaliano

    So he is going to file for bankruptcy on behalf of Puerto Rico from the creditors the way he did for his own businesses?

    • kanehau

      It’s the one thing he truly is an expert at.

  • ChrisInKansas

    “You know – bankruptcy. Like I did. Many, many times.”

  • Treant

    I’m very sure that would require the cooperation of Congress, so it’ll never happen. Not that it’ll matter to the Trumpsters, who think it’s already done because he said so.

    On the up side, Don the Con looks older, more worn, and in poorer color with every passing day. Frankly, he looks like shit, and he’s not even bothering to do the job he was “elected” to do.

    • boatboy_srq

      Harrison succumbed quickly to his ailment, and Reagan at least had a canny First Lady in Nancy to maintain a reasonable front. The US has neither advantage this time: Lord Dampnut is likely to carry on all the way through to advanced dementia, and Melania displays none of the political savvy required to backstop her ailing husband.

      • Scott MB

        She doesn’t want to back him up, she wants him gone so she can get the money. I am sure she is joping that this kills him or puts h in a situation that he can’t function.

        • boatboy_srq

          Most First Spouses married leaders. Melania married a celebrity. That says everything.

  • Stubenville

    Yea, they’ll wipe out Puerto Rico’s debt… and use that as an excuse to give them no other monies for rebuilding.

  • TexasBoy

    He will agree to wipe out the debt in exchange for rebranding Carlos Ramirez’s casino as Trump Caribbean Casino and will take possession of Convent San Tanco, rebranding it as Trump’s Caribbean Resort and Spa, the original building will be preserved, the sisters and orphans will be housekeepers and gardeners, the chapel will be the main lobby, the small kitchen and dining room an exclusive restaurant surrounded by high dollar luxury cottages with lovely ocean views, private hot tubs and pools. He’ll then take possession of the licensed branded Trump golf course, and provide luxury helicopter service connecting the 3 venues.

  • barrixines

    I look forward to visiting Puerto Trumpo in the near future.

    • ChrisInKansas

      How are you going to even get to it? I mean, it’s in the middle of a big ocean. Surrounded by water. Big water. Ocean water.

    • another_steve

      Here’s a picture of Trump’s future home. It’s called Alcatraz Prison and it’s located in San Francisco California.

      Trump will be its only resident.

      https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bbe0363029733cbdc8507b137178d56cd9392f0db0ffdd7edc8451413c824bfa.jpg

      • barrixines

        Wouldn’t that be magnificent? With a huge gold Trump Tower sign plastered on the side.

        • another_steve

          Yes, I like the idea of a huge gold sign. Something for the seagulls to shit on.

          You may know I’m an unabashed anglophile, barrixines. I love all things British. Do you think we could restore the Tower of London as a…umm…retirement home for Donald Trump?

          • barrixines

            Although it would be a very good reason to reopen Traitor’s Gate, I do feel he might frighten the ravens and we know where that leads.

          • another_steve

            If you’re familiar with American football (what we yanks call “football”), you know there’s a team here in Baltimore called “The Ravens.” The name derives from Edgar Allan Poe’s famous poem. Poe was, for a while, a resident of Baltimore and is buried here.

            That’s probably the last bit of something nice that you’ll read here on JMG today, barrixines.

            Everything that follows on the blog today will be horror and mental torment.

        • another_steve

          Yes, you have some nasty places of incarceration out there. Has to do, I suspect, with your rugged beginnings back in the 1800s – when men were men and women did the cookin’.

          Gentle and enlightened reformation of criminals was not the rule back then.

        • doninkansas

          Lansing Prison? Or the one for the criminally insane in Larned?

          • ChrisInKansas

            Let’s go with Leavenworth. It’s the farthest from where I live.

          • Beagle

            I still vote St. Helena. Or some equally remote and sparsely populated island.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    Presumably all meaningless bluster, but I could also see Trump and / or Congress ordering the selling off the roads, the water system, the school system, etc. in exchange for debt forgiveness.

    Essentially privatize the entire infrastructure, a Republican wet dream.

    • doninkansas

      Brownback has been working on that here in Kansas and it has not been pretty.

  • Todd20036

    You mean he’s going to pay his bills to them?

    • Karl Dubhe

      No, he’s going to get the taxpayer to pay his bills. As well as the bills of other people.

  • another_steve

    Notice the use of “they.” He doesn’t consider them Americans. Not “we.”

    They’re “they.”

    • lymis

      In all seriousness, I question whether he knows they’re all US citizens.

  • ByronK

    Yup, just as expected – Vegas is all about him. Fuck you you fucking fuckface fucker.

      Why SHOULDN’T we take what a president says literally?? Are you admitting that he doesn’t have a fucking clue what he’s talking about?

      • Ken M

        Because he’s joking. Come on, can’t the people take a take? Where is America’s sense of humor? Remember all the “jokes” in that speech he made to the police?

    • Nax

      But not before PR bonds collapsed.

    • Uncle Mark

      Shouldn’t we be concerned about saving Puerto Rico, first…before we discuss their debt. Do we do credit checks on someone before throwing people a lifesaver/lifeline or before we rush them to the emergency room?

      Someone needs to remind the Deplorable & Chief that he is supposed to represent ALL Americans, not just Wall Street, and not just the low life minority that makes up his base.

      • Hank

        “Do we do credit checks on someone before throwing people a lifesaver/lifeline”
        Herr Drumpf would not even bother to do either!!! If it is NOT about him, he is not interested!

      • clay

        “Do we do credit checks on someone before . . . we rush them to the emergency room?”

        Did you read the Trump/Ryan-Care proposals? The Executive Branch just decided to to that before we let people vote.

    • ColdCountry

      Did anyone really think he had the authority to do that? Other than his supporters who haven’t a clue how government works?

    Ya sure okay. During the campaign Trump allegedly met a “top cop” who said he could fix Chicago in less than a week. Last time I checked, Chicago still wasn’t fixed. People need to start holding Trump accountable for all the whack things he says.

  • Ken M

    With the budget still in the works, he probably thought there was some way he could convince Congress to sneak it in the backdoor. After all, an increased debt ceiling can be for anything they tell the public it’s for. Doesn’t mean it has to be of course. It’s getting nice to see Congress, and other on the Hill start, not only to blow him off, but to be correcting him in public as well.

      If Putin wanted to concoct the ideal candidate to serve his purposes, his laboratory creation would look like Donald Trump. The Republican nominee wants to shatter our military alliances in Europe; he cheers the destruction of the European Union; he favors ratcheting down tensions with Russia over Ukraine and Syria, both as a matter of foreign policy and in service of his own pecuniary interests. A Trump presidency would weaken Putin’s greatest geo-strategic competitor. By stoking racial hatred, Trump will shred the fabric of American society. He advertises his willingness to dismantle constitutional limits on executive power. In his desire to renegotiate debt payments, he would ruin the full faith and credit of the United States. One pro-Kremlin blogger summed up his government’s interest in this election with clarifying bluntness: “Trump will smash America as we know it, we’ve got nothing to lose.”

            Hmmmm, It was a statement, well written by a gentleman clarifying
            how nothing that Trump claims he is doing is actually
            happening. How his power, or what he thinks he can do, is all wrong. The main thing I remember was the clarification that of his powerlessness. Nothing more from Obama to repeal, The years things take to pass, which he thinks happen with a signature. It was just enjoyable reading. I’ll try and find it too in the past articles. Thanks.

    • When you run a privately held company, it’s easier to keep outsiders from learning of the day-to-day acts of gross mismanagement and incompetence that take place. The federal government is NOT a privately held company.

      There are no “diversions” or “distractions” with this administration. Just dozens and dozens of stupid blunders and unforced errors that any halfway decent leader who had a halfway decent clue would have sidestepped with ease. It’d be funny if it weren’t fucking up people’s lives.

    All of these “that debt is going to hurt America” comments. HELLO..PR is America. CA, NY, and TX all owe more individually than PR does. Yes, TX, and the only available numbers on TX are from before Harvey.

  • Kelly Lape

    Now is the time to buy Puerto Rico bonds. They’ve “plummeted” with this news, and we all know the next “shiny thing” flashed in front of the Toddler in Chief’s eyes will make him forget all about this Wall Street Heresy.

      Never catch (buy) a falling knife.

  • Rex

    So that’s what the paper towels were for.

  • Slippy_World
    • TexasBoy

      How yugely inconsiderate of the locals to leave their devastated dwellings in the way of his golf game!

      • doninkansas

        But he did bring them paper towels! Thoughtful of him, as they do have a big mess to clean up and they aren’t doing nearly enough, as he keeps telling them!

      • Uncle Mark

        It’s one of those hazards on the golf course. Perhaps a pitching wedge might come in handy here. Of course the real problem is that there is no clear path for the golf cart/fork lift to carry BLOTUS

    • lymis

      Joking aside, does anyone think that there aren’t discussions of buying up land cheaply to build a Trump-branded resort?

  • BuffaloDan

    Yeah. And the Mexicans will pay for it!

    • Talisman

      Cuba is closer, and we have to make them pay for the acoustic attacks.

  • Here we go – El Jefe Covfefe knows a bit about how to manipulate bankruptcy laws.

  • I always forget that Geraldo Rivera is on Fox. But of course he is. Where else would a “journalist” who has been exposed as a sham multiple times wind up?

  • doninkansas

    Can he start with the millions of debt he left them?

    • Ken M

      Can’t mix business and presidency, remember? 😉

  • Gerry Fisher

    He really *is* superman! In his own mind.

    (I was in Rehoboth Beach a few weekends ago, and a tee shirt shop displayed a “Trump pulling back his collared shirt to reveal a Superman costume” tee shirt on the street. So…that’s how he and his supporters see it. It’s quite the fantasy being entertained by 1/3 of the American population.)

  • Gene Perry

    Wait. Huh? What? You’re going to “wipe out” PR’s debt. Can’t do that, Donny. THis isn’t like Atlantic City where you can just skip town without paying you bills.

  • Talisman

    A businessman who does not understand the concept of income and expenditures. No wonder he has declared bankruptcy 5 times.

  • JWC

    Who set up all the hedge funds and other tax free schemes that lured PR into this mess. PR is not innocent but were lead into a mess designed by big banks

    • BobSF_94117

      The U.S. Congress, wisely or not, set up tax incentives to draw business to PR and other US territories. The problem is that they abruptly cancelled them and created no penalties for corporations sending those jobs — and millions of other jobs — overseas.

      I’m sure the GOP will blame Dems for that, too…

      • JWC

        Its much asI assumed PR could/should have been more prudent amd the other side saw a fat chicken to pluck

        • BobSF_94117

          I’m not sure how PR could have been “prudent” about expecting the GOP-led Congress to cut out funding from under them and sell out them and the average American worker across the country.

          But if you mean they could have spent less and promised less, well, of course.

          • JWC

            Yes I suppose in most deals there are pros and cons to be examined theron lies ‘prudent”

  • Ben in Oakland

    “Your friends on Wall Street”?

    That alone ought to disqualify trump from being president,

  • whollyfool

    Here’s what I want to know…. sure the PR death toll was not as big as Katrina, but how many were killed in the storm and how many died from lack of services and electricity after the storm?

    • UrsusArctos

      Far too many in BOTH cases. Misery isn’t a zero sum game, there’s always more waiting out there. *sigh*

      • whollyfool

        I hear you. What I meant was how many of those deaths were basically caused by his inability to get help to PR in time. 🙁

  • mizzourah

    “Your friends on Wall Street….”. So odd. Projecting?

    • Friday

      Pretty sure he’s pissed off most of Wall St, businesswise, hence all the Russian dealings.

  • Kevin Perez
  • Waarki

    Hannity and Rivera … isn’t there a term for that? … Like ‘double felching’

    • UrsusArctos

      2 Deplorables, 1 chamberpot

  • Canadian Observer

    Maybe 45 could meet one on one with the Governor of Puerto Rico (no recording devices of course) and give him the skinny on getting sweetheart loans from Russian banks.

    • -M-

      They should record it and make it a podcast so the whole country can benefit from Cheato’s financial acumen.

  • nipper

    He’s going to nuke it like NK?

  • -M-

    Goldman Sachs is your cabinet, moron.
    But feel free to screw them over on this.
    Proceed.

  • ColdCountry

    He’ll just auction off the entire island and use the money to pay off the debt at 3 cents on the dollar.

  • JCF

    “Trump Vows To “Wipe Out” Puerto Rican[s]”

    Now, at least believable.

  • Gianni

    When Donnie speaks, my head spins.

  • Gianni

    Wiping out Puerto Rico’s debt means that we, the taxpayers, will pay off that debt. The President just can’t wipe it off the books.
