Unable to send USDT out of Metamask

Sent USDT funds from Kucoin to Metamask (never used before) now can’t convert to ETH. When I try to swap, I’m instructed to buy more ETH to cover gas. Can’t buy ETH bcuz it says it doesn’t support Texas. Only $400, but nephew needs some FEG.
Any suggestions?? THX!


Also stuck with Texas address problems. Unable to buy ETH using any of my fiat connections because of Texas address associated with accounts. Has anyone found any workarounds?
