Trump’s lack of political experience/knowledge makes him look buffoonish on a daily and sometimes hourly basis. During his speech at the Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C., Trump forgot that he was president. He spoke about his recent trips to hurricane-ravaged areas of the United States, and at one point, said he met “with the President of the Virgin Islands.”
Trump doesn’t know that he’s the president of the U.S. Virgin Islands. He added, “These are people that are incredible people.”
Earlier this month, Trump did meet with Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp, who he was most likely referring to as the president during his speech. Even the official White House transcript listed Mapp as the president:

Trump’s Energy Secretary Rick Perry thinks Puerto Rico is its own country. In a congressional testimony concerning the mass power outage in the U.S. territory, Perry said:
“That is a country that already had its challenges before this storm.”
The Trump administration continues to attack Puerto Rico over its debt and old power grid. The island needs aid instead of criticisms.
Democratic Florida Rep. Kathy Castor corrected Perry: “It’s America. They’re American citizens, so it’s not a country.”
Trump says he met with the “president of the Virgin Islands.”
