I would give the odds of that happening the same odds that Politico will have less readers then groupthink. Not going to happen. With the financial troubles they have few if any politicians will say yes to statehood. A bailout is probable but slim under Trump statehood nope. Not for a few decades I think.
Does Puerto Rico have the same status as DC or less of one?
I would like DC and PR as states but I don’t want to give PR statehood just to rescue their economy. I want them in because the majority of those on the island do, not a small number eyeing statehood as means to get out of debt.
I would help bail them out and better access to federal help like healthcare.
DC should have been a state decades ago and should be 51st state.
