Trump was apparently referring to Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp when he mentioned the "president" of the USA territory, who is Trump himself.
President Trump mistakenly referred to the governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands as its "president" during a speech Friday. These are people that are incredible people, they've suffered greatly. The Virgin Islands were hit by both Hurricanes Irma and Maria 12 days apart. It could be entirely possible that the President had a conversation with himself while he was visiting the Virgin Islands.

Perry then apologized. Earlier in the hearing, he correctly referred to Puerto Rico as a territory.
