Trump botches reference to ‘president’ of Virgin Islands a day after Rick Perry called Puerto Rico a ‘country’

Update: And now President Trump has talked about another U.S. territory as if it's a foreign country. He said in a speech at the Values Voters Summit on Friday morning that he met with the "president" of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The Virgin Islands don't have a president; they have a governor, Kenneth Mapp. In fact, their president is none other than Trump.



Trump's flub comes a day after Rick Perry made a similar error on Puerto Rico.

A new poll shows that 55 percent of Americans think the Trump administration hasn't done enough to help Puerto Rico, and that 52 percent believe Trump doesn't even care about the U.S. territory's problems after Hurricane Maria.
