Donald Trump was mocked on Twitter after telling attendees at Friday's Value Voters Summit that he recently met with the "President of the Virgin Islands" after hurricanes Irma and Maria swept through the islands.

During his speech (video below), Trump seems convinced that the man he met with — Governor Kenneth Mapp — is the president of the U.S. territory. To make matters even worse, he made the erroneous comment not once, but twice during his speech.

"I went to Puerto Rico and I met with the President of the Virgin Islands," Trump said during to the audience during the summit.

He went on to say, "The Virgin Islands and the President of the Virgin Islands, these are people that are incredible people..."

Newsweek quickly picked up on this and asked, "Is President Donald Trump aware residents of the U.S. Virgin Islands are, in fact, Americans? It's unclear."

Twitter mocks President Trump

It didn't take long for word to get out about President Trump's gaffe and, as always, the Twitter reaction has provided a few laughs.

CNN reports that Trump "accidentally referred" to the USVI governor as their President, but many Twitter users aren't buying that excuse.

Some tweets questioned whether or not Trump is aware that the islands are a U.S. territory.

Throughout the afternoon, hilarious tweets about Trump's latest screw-up continued to stream through the Twitter feed, making for great Friday afternoon entertainment.

A U.S. territory for 100 years

Virgin Islands includes three main islands (Saint Croix, Saint John, and Saint Thomas) surrounded by several smaller islands. The islands became a U.S. territory in 1917 — 29 years before Trump was born. The most recent U.S. Government census report from 2010 states that approximately 107,000 people live in the islands.

According to the USVI Bureau of Economic Research, tourism is the main economic activity in the islands, with as many as two million people visiting each year.

Unfortunately, tourism took a hit when two major hurricanes hit the islands in September. According to the New York Times, Hurricane Irma hit the U.S. Virgin Islands on September 6 and, two weeks later, Hurricane Maria tore through the islands again.

On October 3, President Trump met with Governor Kenneth Mapp, the man he referred to as the "President of the Virgin Islands" during his October 13 speech at the Value Voters Summit in Washington, D.C.
