President Trump has made some pretty ignorant remarks in the few months he has been president of the United States. Multiple news agencies have fact-checked the president, which usually ends with Trump swearing the outlet is illegitimate, and a distributer of fake news.
Now, however, foreign countries are calling out President Trump for remarks he made last week. Trump said this to the Wall Street Journal:
“[Xi] Then went into the history of China and Korea,” he recounted to the Wall Street Journal. “And you know, you’re talking about thousands of years … and many wars. And Korea actually used to be a part of China.”
Foreign ministry spokesman Cho June Hyuck has now responded to Trump’s ridiculous claims that Korea was once a part of China. He released the following statement Thursday afternoon:
“It’s a clear fact acknowledged by the international community that, for thousands of years of history, Korea has never been part of China.”
Liberal Korea Party candidate Hong Joon Pyo added that, “this is clearly a distortion of history and an invasion of the Republic of Korea’s sovereignty.”
Trump is certain to fly off the handle at this blatant attack on his poor character. He’ll take to Twitter to talk about how overrated North Korea and China are, and how bad they’re failing.
Get ready for some interesting social media action.
