Virgin Islanders react to Trumpís Transfer Day Statement

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(March 31, 2017) — President Donald J. Trump has shown an
unprecedented commitment to the Virgin Islands as the U.S. territory
celebrates 100 years under the American flag.

Trump issued a powerful statement, saying in part: “We thank God for
the U.S. Virgin Islands, for its wonderful people, and for making the
U.S. Virgin Islands part of the United States of America.”

The statement came on the same day that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke
was on St. Croix for the Transfer Day commemoration.

“The fact that Secretary Zinke chose St. Croix and the Virgin Islands as the first territory to visit speaks volumes about the administration’s commitment to ensuring a better, brighter future for all Americans, including Virgin Islanders,” said Virgin Islands GOP National Committeeman Jevon Williams. “No president and no secretary of Interior have been there for Virgin Islanders like President Trump
and Secretary Zinke.”
