If the billions of aid are cut or sucked into oblivion by endemic corruption and outside private capital does not materialize the island will devolve into it's natural primitive state.

Only time will tell.

the actual dispute is over how much to authorize for PR. the democrats want more, Trump wants less, his way of negotiating seems to be to go around talking nonsense.
