Why does it seem like Puerto Rico is the only U.S. Territory ever talked about
Presumably because of closer proximity? Lower populations/economic relevance of other territories?

We have the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Samoa, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands that all have similar legal status but you seem to only hear about Puerto Rico when it comes to things like possible statehood

I know...random question

Guam was talked about when there was a threat that it might tip over.

You are correct. I’m willing to bet over half of our citizens have no idea about Samoa.

Because they’re the shithole with all the problems with a population of democrat voters in the waiting.

The only reason you hear about it now is because liberals try and use it to attack Trump

We, who live in USVI, have asked that question a lot.

We did receive a lot of help and we are very grateful for it. We have new poles supporting our power lines and they are hurricane resistant. They are not wood product. Heard they have fiberglass and have increased diameter,

Thank you all on the mainland! Thank you President Trump!
