PHILIPSBURG – Recently elected President of the United States of America, Donald Trump blasted then Prime Minister of St. Maarten, Sarah Wescot-Williams on his official Twitter account back in June 19, 2014.
In the angry Tweet, Trump states: “Every day St. Maarten loses vital tourism dollars due to the incompetence of PM Sarah Westcot-Williams. @PrimeMinisterSX”. Although the spelling of the then PM’s last name contains a typo, the tweet is obviously directed at her. It is unknown what sparked the angry Tweet.
The question is if Wescot-Williams should feel insulted or flattered as Trump has insulted over 305 persons, places and things since declaring his candidacy in June 2015. A complete list can be viewed here.
Trump owns a luxurious mansion on St. Maarten/St. Martin called “Le Chateau des Palmiers” at Plum Bay which is described by a Celebrity Homes website as: “Purchased in October 2013 on the French side of St. Marten/St. Maarten, this is his smaller estate compared with the others. However, for us this is a huge real estate with nine bedroom home, a tennis courts, a fitness center and an enormous garden for those days when riding the golf cart around and playing a full-18”.
Well, it was just bad timing for Mrs. Westcot-Williams.. Whoever was PM over the last decade would have received the same message.
This might be the ONE time that I agree with The Donald!
