Trump says he met 'President' of US Virgin Islands

President Donald Trump accidentally referred to the Virgin Islands' governor as their President during a speech Friday - even though he is technically their President.

"And I left Texas, and I left Florida, and I left Louisiana, and I went to Puerto Rico", Trump stated.

"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.

Trump thinks he is meeting with the leader of a foreign country when he talks to a governor of a United States territory.

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.

It's not really any wonder that 52% of people feel that Trump "doesn't care about the problems facing Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria". Puerto Rico received some of the worst damage from Maria, and local officials have repeatedly called for more help from the federal government.
