Trump forgets he’s president of the Virgin Islands: ‘I met with the president of the Virgin Islands’

This Thursday during a speech at the Value Voters Summit in Washington, President Trump let the audience know that he had spoken to “president” of the Virgin Islands, apparently forgetting that he is, in fact, the president of the Virgin Islands.

“I will tell you I left Texas and I left Florida and and I left Louisiana and I went to Puerto Rico and I met with the President of the Virgin Islands,” Trump told the audience.

“We are one nation and we all hurt together, we hope together and we heal together,” he said, later adding, “The Virgin Islands and the President of the Virgin Islands, these are people that are incredible people, they suffered gravely and we’re be there, we’re going to be there, we have really, it is not even a question of a choice.”

Trump was most likely referring to Virgin Islands Governor Kenneth Mapp. The Virgin Islands is a U.S. territory.
