Donald Trump is having a very difficult time grasping the awe and wonder apparently posed by the Atlantic, because he’s been commenting about it all morning. “It’s very tough because it’s an island…an island sitting in the middle of an ocean — and it’s a big ocean. It’s a very big ocean.” Then Trump, in his inimitable fashion of saying things twice, said, “This isn’t like Florida…This is a thing called the Atlantic Ocean. This is tough stuff.”

There's this thing we have called THE US NAVY @realDonaldTrump they handle that big blue wobbly thing called The Atlantic all the time.

The Atlantic Ocean, that's one tough hombre. North Korea, no problem. The Atlantic? It's not pacific, if you know what I mean. Tough, tough.

Damn Obama left The Atlantic Ocean problem for Trump to deal with.

"Huge ocean. Many are even calling it an Atlantic Ocean. Billions & billions of fish live in it folks. We're going to bring their jobs back"

The Atlantic Ocean didn't seem to be a problem when he built a Golf course there and, as usual, bankrupted it…

I see how that would be hard since Puerto Rico is on the Caribbean Sea, not the Atlantic Ocean.

John Kelly has gotten him this far to grasp the concept and the nomenclature of “ocean.” Next Kelly will tutor Trump on the Caribbean Sea, how a peninsula differs from an island, and last but not least — the fact that Puerto Rico is a U.S. Territory because it’s pretty clear that Trump doesn’t know. Stay tuned.
