Our president recently said that the government’s relief efforts in Puerto Rico rated a 10. I have a wonderful proposition for the 80 percent of Puerto Ricans who still have neither electricity nor clean drinking water: Move to the U.S. mainland.

Three-quarters of you vote Democratic. Some 100,000 Puerto Ricans have already fled to Florida since the storm. The U.S. Supreme Court will never again be needed to determine the winner in a Florida presidential election if you will stay in Florida and register to vote. An extra 100,000 new Democrats in New Jersey will guarantee that the state will not elect another Chris Christie.

Another 100,000 moving to New Orleans and Baton Rouge will make us unlikely to elect another embarrassment like Bobby Jindal.

The rest of the South will be turned blue for decades if the remaining 3 million Puerto Rican Americans will leave their pre-hurricane island paradise and settle throughout the South.

Come on, Puerto Rico. Make America Great Again.
