Trump says he met 'President' of US Virgin Islands

Trump says he met 'President' of US Virgin Islands”

"There's no president of the United States other than the president of the United States".

Trump made the slip-up while addressing the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., becoming the first sitting president to appear at the anti-LGBTQ event.

This claim was quick to draw ridiculed because the Virgin Islands are an American territory - which means Trump himself is actually the president of the Virgin Islands.

"I just want to thank everybody, the first responders, on behalf of myself, our Vice President-Melania really wanted to be with us", Trump said, apparently forgetting that the First Lady was standing roughly six inches to his left.

A DAY AGO, Trump's Secretary of Energy Rick Perry made a pretty big mistake when he referred to Puerto Rico as a country, when it is in fact a US territory. "These are people that are incredible people". They've suffered gravely and we'll be there.

Yeah, the Virgin Islands is a part of the United States.

In the official transcript, the White House has crossed out the president's comment that he met with the president of the Virgin Islands. Trump tweeted Thursday: "We can not keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders.in P.R. forever!"

It's not really any wonder that 52% of people feel that Trump "doesn't care about the problems facing Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria". Earlier this week, Energy Secretary Rick Perry referred to Puerto Rico as a country when meeting with Congress to discuss how to fix the island's energy grid.

His latest "oops" moment came as Rep. Kathy Castor pressed the former Texas governor about Trump administration efforts to rebuild Puerto Rico's energy infrastructure after Hurricane Maria.
