Guam Congressman Michael San Nicolas, accompanied by dozens of Guam Guard personnel, delivered Chamorro cookies to the office of Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene who sparked controversy when she lumped Guam with foreign countries undeserving of U.S. aid.

In her comments during the Conservative Political Action Conference held in Orlando, Florida, Greene said: “We believe our hard-earned tax dollars should just go for America. Not for, what? China, Russia, the Middle East, Guam, whatever, wherever.”

This got the ire of Guam residents, including the governor’s office, which offered to send Greene a copy of “Destiny’s Landfall: A History of Guam.”

San Nicolas was more diplomatic, pointing out that Greene was a new member of Congress and promising to send the congresswoman a bag of Chamorro Chip cookies as part of his outreach to introduce Guam to new members of the House.

On Monday, San Nicolas lived up to his promise and delivered a basket of Chamorro cookies to Greene’s office accompanied by a delegation from the Guam Guard.

Unfortunately, Greene was not in his office at the time. However, a staffer from the congresswoman’s office received the cookies on Greene’s behalf and thanked San Nicolas and the Guam Guard for their service to the nation.
