Trump says he spoke to Virgin Islands' 'president' -- which is him

13 Octobre 2017

Trump made the slip-up while addressing the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., becoming the first sitting president to appear at the anti-LGBTQ event.

Trump wasn't corrected during the event, but the speech was amended in the official White House transcript. The Virgin Islands is a U.S. territory.

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.

Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, Justin Houston expected to play Sunday
He's missed the last two games with his back injury but it looks like he'll return to the field on Sunday against the Steelers. After being limited during the Chiefs Wednesday practice, defensive tackle Bennie Logan practiced fully on Thursday.

Did Trump think he met with a foreign leader at that time? 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.

His latest "oops" moment came as Rep. Kathy Castor pressed the former Texas governor about Trump administration efforts to rebuild Puerto Rico's energy infrastructure after Hurricane Maria.

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