Resident Commissioner Jenniffer González Colón insisted on Monday that she does not support Donald Trump to be the Republican Party candidate for president.
“As I have said since day one, I have my hands full here in Puerto Rico,” the resident commissioner said in response to questions from the press. “I am pregnant and I am running a primary, so I do not have the time to get involved in a presidential campaign as I have done in the past. I was involved in many of those presidential campaigns.”
“I am also not a delegate to the National Convention,” González Colón added. “Let’s wait; I personally really like the ambassador and former governor Nikki Haley, whom I know. I did not support President Trump, so I hope that at the end of the road the waters reach her level and hopefully Nikki Haley can strengthen her candidacy, but I am not going to be involved in that campaign.”
With the departure of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis from the GOP race on Sunday, Haley and former President Trump remain as candidates.
