On Thursday, a South Korean English language news segment mocked U.S. President Donald Trump for saying that Korea had once been “part of China.”

The president made this statement during a Wall Street Journal interview on April 12th. Trump had said that China’s President told him at Mar-a-Lago that “Korea actually used to be a part of China.”

The South Korean newscast, Arirang News said,

“U.S. Pres. Donald Trump is coming under fire in South Korea for some ignorant remarks he made about Korea’s being part of China, which in fact, it never was.”

One South Korean government official stated, “the suggestion is not true and not even worthy of a response.”
