Trump Refers to Virgin Islands' President As Someone Other Than Himself

Not Released

Trump is the first sitting president to speak before the Values Voter Summit, a gathering of Christian conservatives and said he would be there for all affected USA citizens, who he insisted were "healing".

This claim was quick to draw ridiculed because the Virgin Islands are an American territory - which means Trump himself is actually the president of the Virgin Islands.

During his speech at the Values Voters summit on Friday, President Donald Trump told the crowd that he recently met with the "president of the Virgin Islands".

Of course, the person Trump was most likely referring to was Kenneth Mapp, the governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands, who he met with 10 days ago.

Later, the White House released a transcript of Trump's speech with the word "president" crossed out and replaced with "governor".

Trump was addressing a gathering of religious conservatives in Washington, D.C., when he turned to tout the federal response to several USA states and territories hit by hurricanes in recent months.

Trump on Friday addressed the USA government's response to Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.

Trump's flub comes just one day after Energy Secretary Rick Perry made a similar mistake about Puerto Rico.

"This pretty much summarizes the mainland confusion about residents in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands actually being U.S. citizens", tweeted reporter Jordyn Holman. After this mistake, it's safe to assume that Trump will never go off teleprompter again.

During a subcommittee hearing, Perry referred to the island territory as a "country."
