US President Donald Trump explained why he believes that the District of Columbia, where the US capital is located, will never become the 51st state, despite the best efforts of activists.
According to Trump, Republicans in Congress would be “very, very stupid” if they gave the district of Columbia the status of a state, because then the population of the city, which is dominated by Democrats, would probably elect two democratic senators, strengthening the position of this party.
“The district of Columbia will never be a state,” Trump told the New York Post this week. – Turn the District of Columbia into a state? So we can have two more democratic senators and five more congressmen? No, thank you. This will never happen.”
