"I left Texas, and I left Florida, and I left Louisiana, and I went to Puerto Rico, and I met with the president of the Virgin Islands", the former Celebrity Apprentice host, 71, told the audience at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, October 12. "These are people that are incredible people".
The problem here is that Donald Trump actually is the President of the Virgin Islands, which are also known as the United States Virgin Islands.
Yes, during a speech Friday morning Trump brought up the ongoing hurricane relief efforts and mentioned that he had met with the president of the U.S. Virgin Islands. They suffered gravely and we're ... going to be there.
Trump thinks he is meeting with the leader of a foreign country when he talks to a governor of a United States territory.
The White House's authentic transcript later redressed the line to demonstrate Trump was alluding to Mapp. The Virgin Islands were hit by both Hurricanes Irma and Maria 12 days apart. He wrote that both Virgin Island hospitals, school, fire and police stations have been destroyed. 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.
Trump, speaking Friday, promised his help for regions pulverized by a marathon of tropical storms - a day in the wake of taking note of government alleviation endeavors can't remain in Puerto Rico "until the end of time".
