Washington – Apparently President Donald Trump is not a fan of “Parasite,” and his biggest complaint is that the movie is South Korean.
Trump began talking about the Academy Awards during a campaign rally on Thursday in Colorado Springs, Colorado. “Parasite” was named the best film, thus becoming the first film in a language other than English to obtain the most important Oscar award.
“Why the hell did they do that?” Trump said. “We already have enough problems with South Korea in the trade. Besides that, they give (the prize) to the best film of the year. Was it a good thing? I don’t know.”RELATED
Neon, the US distributor of the subtitled film, replied on Twitter: “It’s understandable. He can’t read.”
The audience booed when Trump mentioned the Academy Awards, and then cheered him when he said, “Please, could we have something like ‘Gone with the Wind’ back?” ‘Sunset Boulevard’, so many excellent movies. “
“Parasite” tells the story of how a family of four poor and unemployed people living in an apartment in a basement in a poor neighborhood comically infiltrates a wealthy family residing in a luxurious mansion before things turn violent and tragic .
