Trump Refers to Virgin Islands' President As Someone Other Than Himself

He himself is said president.

"Can't wait for the summit between Trump's President of the Virgin Islands & Rick Perry's President of Puerto Rico", he wrote.

'These are people that are incredible people'. He was likely referring to meetings and calls he had with U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp.

This isn't the first time the Trump administration has referred to the USA territories as foreign countries. They do not have a separate president; Trump holds that gig. The Virgin Islands and head of Virgin Islands, se people are great people, y suffered so much, we will be with m, "he said".

The official White House transcript of the speech has the word "president" crossed out and the word "governor" in brackets following it, CNN reports. It is not in an ocean at all but the Caribbean Sea.

Perry elucidated that he comprehended, and had simply minutes sooner alluded to Puerto Rico as a domain.

It all went down when Trump was speaking at the Values Voter Summit, the annual gathering of the vehemently anti-LGBTQ+ Family Research Council.

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

Still, in Trump's defence, if Virgin Islanders could elect their own President, I reckon they'd definitely be considering it.

He was referring to how the US Virgin Islands was hit first by Hurricane Irma, then Hurricane Maria, which ravaged the island.
