How likely is it that you’ll see this on CNN?
Slim and None and Slim is out of town.
The College Republican Federation is raising money to build a bronze statue of President Trump to be placed in front of the capitol building in San Juan. The “Walkway of Presidents” currently has statues of nine U.S. Presidents that have made official visits to the island during their term in office.
Melvin Soto Vazquez, the vice president of the federation, explains that the statue is being crowdfunded because of fiscal restraints aimed at curtailing non-essential public works projects. The legislature of Puerto Rico is also quite hesitant to allocate funds to commission the statue for President Trump, so, the college Republicans decided to take the task on themselves. They started a GoFundMe campaign called “Build 45!” with a goal of $45,000 for the statue but so far, they have only managed to raise around $6,700.

These college kids are fans of the President and want his likeness in front of the capitol building. They think that he’s been doing quite a lot for Puerto Rico by allocating billions in aid in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Of course, you’d never hear that on the Media(D).
These young Republicans also want to have the first statue of President Trump on U.S. soil. Wouldn’t that be a thumb in the eye to the leftists? Pretty cool, guys!
