PUERTO RICANS, CHAMORROS, OTHERS WILL LOSE CITIZENSHIP UNDER TRUMP PRESIDENCY

NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Earlier this week, the Rev. Al Sharpton declared that “people that were from Puerto Rico all would have to go back if their parents were undocumented.” In other words, Sharpton believes that Puerto Ricans are not  U.S. citizens.

Soon enough, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, while speaking to a group of investment bankers and hedge fund owners in New York City, allegedly declared that if elected, he will revoke the U.S. citizenship of all Puerto Ricans because they are “not part of the American race.”

While Trump mentioned only Puerto Rico, his campaign told reporters that he meant to say all citizens from the territories of the U.S., including Guam, American Samoa, U.S. Virgin Islands and Northern Mariana Islands.

“We don’t really need these non-Americans and I don’t need their votes to win the presidency,” Trump said.

People born in these five territories are automatically U.S. citizens. However, under the federal electoral college system, only those residing in one of the 50 states of the U.S., and the District of Columbia, are eligible to vote for U.S. president.

So while Trump was wrong to say that Puerto Rico and the other territories are not part of America, he was correct in saying he doesn’t need their votes because they can’t vote for president.
