THIS COULD MEAN MAJOR LOSSES ON WALL STREET: Trump Says Puerto Rico's Debt Will Have to be Wiped Out

If this is a serious policy statement from President Trump, then there are going to be some major losses for some on Wall Street

In an interview with Fox News, Trump said that Puerto Rico's debt will have to wiped out.

"They owe a lot of money to your friends on Wall Street and we're going to have to wipe that out. You're going to say

  1. "You're going to have to waive goodbye to that" should be Trump's new slogan. Applicable to, ya know, intervening a little less militarily overseaa, Olosercare repeal, tax cuts, the silly border wall, and every other BS campaign promise.

    1. Too long. "Wave goodbye to that!" would work. Slogans must be concise.

      Btw, when you are asked for a unique user name, you don't guid around.

  2. Is it wrong that Im laughing at this possibility?
