He's the first top member of the Trump administration to visit the U.S. Virgin Islands. Otherwise, their government will shut down by November 1.

After spending a well-received or much-criticized day in Puerto Rico - depending on the coverage - Trump headed to Nevada to meet with those impacted by one of the worst mass shootings in recent US history. "His budget head says he didn't mean it", Chicago Tribune, October 5, 2017.
