During the Conservative Political Action Conference, Greene seemed to not know where Guam was or that it was a US territory.
“I’m a regular person. And I wanted to take my regular-person, normal, everyday American values, which is, we love our country. We believe our hard-earned tax dollars should just go for America, not for what? China, Russia, the Middle East, Guam, whatever, wherever,” she said in late February.
Last week, Nicholas promised to gift her cookies, and the office of Guam’s governor, Lourdes Aflague Leon Guerrero, offered books on the history of the territory.
“Congresswoman Greene is a new member, and we will be paying a visit to her and delivering delicious Chamorro Chip Cookies as part of our ongoing outreach to new members to introduce them to our wonderful island of Guam,” Nicholas told The Guam Daily Post.
On Monday, Nicholas delivered on that promise but the Congresswoman was not at her office when they visited, according to a video uploaded by The Hill.
They were met by an aide who thanked them.
“Thank you guys so much for all that you do. We really appreciate it. Thank you guys for keeping us safe,” the aide said.
