Trump says he met 'President' of US Virgin Islands

Not Released

Trump and Mapp met a little more than a week ago to discuss storm relief for the Virgin Islands

"Can't wait for the summit between Trump's President of the Virgin Islands & Rick Perry's President of Puerto Rico", he wrote. "There's no president of the United States other than the president of the United States".

"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.

Jean-Claude Juncker rejeita Catalunha independente
A afirmação foi dada três dias após Carles Puigdemont, chefe do governo catalão, declarar independência da região. Logo depois, porém, pediu suspensão do anúncio para ainda tentar dialogar com o governo espanhol.

But I don't think anyone should tell him because it's amusing that he believes that the Virgin Island has another president. "These are people that are incredible people. They've suffered gravely and we'll be there-we're going to be there".

Donald Trump on Friday referred to Kenneth Mapp, Governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands, as president.

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

The official White House transcript corrected Trump's remarks by putting "governor" in brackets next to "president". Trump tweeted Thursday: "We can not keep FEMA, the Military & the First P.R. forever!"

NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA) PT Raised to $217.00 at Goldman Sachs Group, Inc
Instinet increased their price objective on shares of NVIDIA to $100.00 in a research report on Friday, February 10th. Also, EVP Debora Shoquist sold 33,498 shares of the company's stock in a transaction on Tuesday, October 10th.

Energy Secretary Rick Perry suffered a similar gaffe on Thursday when he mistakenly referred to Puerto Rico, a USA territory, as a country during a House Energy and Commerce hearing. The intense spotlight of the presidency has taken the country past the point of Trump doesn't know things, and straight into, there is something wrong with Donald Trump. While recent screwups have ranged from a wildly offensive pronunciation of Puerto Rico to bragging that he was behind a publicity stunt that wasted $250,000 in taxpayer money, on October 13, Trump proved that we have not yet reached rock bottom when it comes to things that the nation can be horribly embarrassed by.
