Republican Party of the United States Virgin Islands Chairman John Canegata issued the following statement ahead of President Donald J. Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress:
“President Trump has a bold and optimistic vision for our country that puts America first and party politics second. President Trump is fulfilling the promises he made to the American people at a record-setting place — not only is he bringing back Americans jobs, but he is meeting with territorial leaders, recognizing our unique position in the fabric of the country. It is my sincere hope that Congresswoman Plaskett will drop the partisan politics and instead join with President Trump to help make America and the Caribbean great again.”
Canegata has been working closely with the Trump administration to ensure issues impacting the Virgin Islands are heard in the halls of government.
