The monstrously ignorant Trump has been quoted as saying that Korea was once a part of China.
Koreans are ferociously independent people. They’re not Chinese, they’re not Japanese, they’ve paid a high price over the centuries to be Korean.
Koreans are enraged at Trump for making such an ignorant and undiplomatic comment, one perhaps fed to him by the Chinese PM.
I said months ago that this excuse for a president knew –nothing– of Asia.
He has just made one of the biggest gaffes that one could imagine. Even if Korea was once part of China ( it was not ); noone with any knowledge of Korean sensibilities would have said such a thing.
