The Biscay Islands, the tiny American territory that has been home to many U.S. presidents since 1790, are up for sale.
The sale comes as the Trump administration looks to diversify its foreign policy portfolio, a process that could help make the islands a better place to live.
It also comes after a month of public criticism of the islands, with local residents and businesses accusing the Trump White House of trying to take over their territory.
It’s the latest in a string of controversies in the Bismarck-Dalhart National Wildlife Refuge, including a spill of 1.2 million gallons of oil into a nearby lake.
The White House has since responded by calling for calm, saying that “any suggestion that the Administration is attempting to usurp the Bissau Presidency or take control of the Bisdag” is “without basis.”
But the islands are still the focus of the Trump Administration’s efforts to get foreign buyers.
On Friday, a Trump administration official said the administration is still “considering the purchase options” and is “reviewing the environmental impacts.”
The official also said the sale “has not yet been finalized,” and that it is “under review.”
“We are working with our partners to ensure that the best interests of the public are protected in this process, including the Bistro Biscayan, which is located at the Biskas Point Marine Sanctuary,” the official said in a statement.
A spokesman for Biskasa told Fox News that the company was “pleased to hear the Administration will be looking for buyers for the property.”
“Biskasa is confident the Bislay Islands will become a great home for our community and will be a major asset for the communities of the region, especially for the tourism industry,” said the statement.
