Trump Meets with Caribbean Leaders

The leaders of five Caribbean nations met with President Donald Trump at his private Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, on Friday.

Participants in the meeting included Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert A. Minnis, Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness, St. Lucian Prime Minister Allen Chastanet, Dominican Republic President Danilo Medina Sánchez and Haitian President Jovenel Moïse.

In an official statement prior to the meeting, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, “The president looks forward to working with countries in the region to strengthen our security cooperation and counter China’s predatory economic practices. The President will use this meeting as an opportunity to thank these countries for their support for peace and democracy in Venezuela. The United States remains a good friend to the Caribbean and seeks to build on a proud legacy as the region’s partner of choice.”

Following the meeting, Caribbean leaders said most of the talk centered around trade and investments and that the U.S. has committed to sending a representative from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation to visit each of their nations.
