The North Korean National Anthem Was Played at Trump's DC Hotel During an Event Honoring POTUS

by Joe DePaolo | 4:17 pm, June 25th, 2018

Two weeks removed from the historic summit in Singapore during which President Donald Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a group called Virginia Women for Trump decided it wanted to honor — at Trump’s Washington DC hotel — what it deemed a foreign policy breakthrough on the president’s part.

How best to do that? Virginia Women for Trump apparently decided to celebrate the summit — and Trump’s recent birthday — with a rendition of the North Korean national anthem.

According to The New York Times, several hundred women gathered at the hotel for the celebration — led by Alice Butler-Short, the group’s president. Times reporter Elizabeth Williamson described the scene thusly:

At one key moment, a woman in a flowing, black and white, Asian-style costume appeared. As martial-sounding music played, she walked the runway with arms outstretched, carrying what looked like a red velvet and gilded Valentine’s Day candy box. The women cheered as she paused, lifting the box to the heavens.

Ms. Butler-Short took the stage, her substantial, bejeweled gold lamé millinery bobbing. “That signified our great president and the negotiations he is having with North Korea,” she said. The music, she explained, was the North Korean national anthem.
