Trump says he met the ‘president of the Virgin Islands,’ a.k.a. himself

President Donald Trump has a way with words, as you may know. 

Trump was speaking at Values Voter Summit on Friday when once again, he embarrassed himself with his choice of words. 

While speaking on the natural disasters that have struck the United States in the last few months, Trump accidentally said he met with the president of the Virgins Islands. The problem? Trump is literally the president of the Virgin Islands, a U.S. territory. 

Even the official White House transcript of the speech points out the error, noting that Trump was likely speaking about his meeting with Kenneth Mapp on October 3, the governor of the islands.

“I will tell you, I left Texas, and I left Florida, and I left Louisiana, and I went to Puerto Rico, and I met with the president [governor] of the Virgin Islands,” the transcript reads. 

As always, the internet used the gaff as an opportunity to mock Trump.
