The Mayor of Tangier Island James Eskridge got an unusual phone call yesterday afternoon.
It was from President Donald Trump.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the president made contact after seeing a report about the island last week on CNN.
Eskridge told the paper he got the call around 2 p.m. and called it “unreal”.
He said that the president told him, “You’ve got one heck of an island there.”
Eskridge told the president that the island residents were big Trump supporters.
