Small Town Mayor BEGS Trump For Help. His Response is EPIC

By

You better believe Trump is the people’s president. Obama would have NEVER done something like this.

In fact, most folks wouldn’t give a second thought to the troubles of such a small town.

But Trump isn’t most folks.

So, when he saw a CNN special (yes, apparently he does keep tabs on CNN) regarding Virginia’s Tangier Island and how it’s being eroded, Trump sprung to action.

From The Washington Post:

James “Ooker” Eskridge was crabbing off the coast of Virginia’s Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay on Monday when he noticed a boat approaching him. Behind it was another.

Eskridge, mayor on the island, steeled himself for the worst. After all, as his wife said to him, “The only thing that could make you come inside from crabbing on a Monday morning is a call from President Trump.”

But as it turned out, that’s exactly what it was.

As one of the boats finally reached him, a fellow waterman told him to return to the island stat, because the president of the United States was calling soon.

“I thought he was joking,” Eskridge told The Washington Post in a phone interview.

Soon, he realized this was no joke.

Tangier Island has been eroding at an alarming rate.

Trump brushed off CNN’s conclusion that global warming was to blame. Eskridge agreed.

The real problem is the current from the Chesapeake River pounding the islands shores.

They need a new jetty or even a full sea wall, and Eskridge said he’s now confident Trump will cut through the red tape and get the job done.
