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.”
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.
