Trump tells mayor of island literally sinking into the ocean ‘not to worry about sea level rise’

The story had three key points:

First, the island is vanishing so rapidly that “the Army Corps of Engineers tells CNN that erosion and sea level rise alone will make this historic crabbing community uninhabitable in as little as 20 years.

Second, the residents are desperate for government help, like an expensive seawall, which they believe could save their vanishing island if it came quickly enough. Mayor James Eskridge made this on-air plea: “We’re saveable, right now. Donald Trump, if you see this, whatever you can do, we welcome any help you can give us.”

Third, the island voted 87 percent for Trump, and the mayor told CNN, “I love Trump as much as any family member I got.”

I hope they both live long enough to see it happen.

Thanks!
