  • Hiring Lewandowski to lobby hasn’t saved Puerto Rico from mean Trump tweets

    Bloomberg - 04/27/2017

    Puerto Rico will have a difficult time getting support for financial assistance from the White House, even with Lewandowski’s professional help, said Amilcar Antonio Barreto, a political scientist at Northeastern University in Boston who studies Puerto Rico.

    “What he’s signaling is that if you think I’m going to throw you a status or a financial life preserver, you’re wrong,” Barreto said. “I don’t think they’re getting much of anything despite the glimmer of hope that they can get the Trump administration to advocate for Puerto Rican statehood, which I sincerely doubt will ever happen.”
