Trump Says He Has Made Deal to Add Hawaii as Fiftieth State

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Donald Trump has reached a groundbreaking deal with the Hawaiian Islands to make them the nation’s fiftieth state, Trump confirmed on Monday.

Calling it “my most incredible deal yet,” Trump said that he had forced Hawaii to bend to his will and “cough up billions” to become a state.

“This is a big win for our country,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “Hawaii is going to be a beautiful and amazing state.”

Just minutes after his announcement, however, there was significant pushback from Hawaii, which claimed that it had already reached a deal to become a state in 1959.

That claim swiftly drew the ire of Trump, who denounced Hawaii’s alleged sixty years of statehood as “fake news” and “disgraceful.”

7. Don't get me started on that one.

My blood pressure goes up about 30 points every time I think of his destruction of the nonpartisan 4th celebration in DC.

5. The title disproved this claim! Trump, no way--no how, could spell 'Fiftieth'

8. I'm shocked Borowitz didn't write this about the United Kingdom.

He surely struck a huuuuge deal with the Queen for statehood after Brexit..... ......

16. Thanks. I missed that perspective.

Bad hair and slow brain day...... ..........

He keeps pulling that crap and getting away with it, including taking credit for things initiated during President Obama's tenure.

The man is amoral as they come, and has the bully pulpit.....

15. As only NOW Hawaii will become a state - he and the birthers will claim they were right!

Trump's "great" deals are all made up!
