Miles Taylor, a former senior official who worked in the early years of President Donald Trump’s administration, said in an interview that the president wanted to “sell” Puerto Rico or exchange it for Greenland, considering that the US territory is “dirty” and its “poor” citizens.
The former chief of staff of the Department of Homeland Security, since he left 14 months ago, told MSNBC the reasons why he resigned from his position and pointed out that he was particularly outraged by what the president of Puerto Rico said after the passage of Hurricane Maria that devastated the island in 2017.
“He not only told us if we could buy Greenland, but if we could sell Puerto Rico or change it for Greenland because, in his words, Puerto Rico was‘ dirty ’and the people were‘ poor ’. These are Americans, we do not speak of American citizens in this way, “Taylor said of the alleged conversation with Trump that took place in August 2018 before a trip by the senior official to the island.
