On July 18, Luis Fortuño led the Puerto Rico delegation to the Trump coronation in Cleveland. He also helped other delegates arrange their travel plans, and secure their credentials, to the coronation of Donald Trump.
Fortuño sat beside Jenniffer González Colón (PNP candidate for Resident Commissioner) and other PNP politicians – as they cheered and applauded the coronation. But according to Fortuño, he’s still “thinking about” Donald Trump.
Fortuño and other Puerto Rican politicians, at the Donald Trump coronation
While attending the coronation, in an interview with Jorge Ramos for Univision, Fortuño stated all of the following:
When asked if he will vote for Trump, ex-governor Fortuño conveniently dodged the question by saying , “I’m a resident of Puerto Rico so I can’t vote in the presidential election. That ‘s why Puerto Rico should become the 51st state.”
Fortuño also stated that Puerto Rico “will benefit from the Financial Control Board” if the island controls its “out-of-control borrowing and spending.”
He forgot to mention that in four short years, while he was governor, Fortuño borrowed over $16 billion from Wall Street – he borrowed more than any other governor in Puerto Rican history.
Then he spent $9 billion on “private contracts,” $1 billion on “public relations,” $100 million on a Fideicomiso de Ciencias that never materialized, and millions on a gaseducto that never got built.
In other words, billions of dollars simply disappeared during the short governorship of Luis Fortuño.
Here is the entire interview:
One final note…
Fortuño is not attending the Democratic convention in Philadelphia.
For a history of the War Against All Puerto Ricans, read the book…
