Richmond Times-Dispatch:

TANGIER — The mayor of the tiny Chesapeake Bay island community of Tangier says President Donald Trump called him after seeing a news report about the threat the Virginia village faces from sea-level rise.

Trump — who was overwhelmingly backed by Tangier residents in November — called Mayor James “Ooker” Eskridge after CNN reported on the island last week, according to The Daily Times of Salisbury, Md.

“It was unreal,” said Eskridge, who spoke with the president Monday afternoon.

According to the mayor, Trump introduced himself and told Eskridge: “You’ve got one heck of an island there.”

Most of low-lying Tangier, with a population of about 450, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Because of the isolation, many residents have retained the linguistic traces of the island’s primarily English settlers who first arrived in the 17th century.
