Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan Says Trump Called South Koreans 'Terrible People'

*What a disgusting piece of garbage he is to insult our South Korean friends and allies like that!

(HuffPost) In a Washington Post editorial, the GOP governor said the president made the remarks in front of his wife, who is from South Korea.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, whose wife is from South Korea, claimed in an editorial for The Washington Post that President Donald Trump called South Koreans “terrible people” during a Republican Governors Association dinner in February.

According to Hogan, a Republican, the remarks were made during one of Trump’s “unscripted rally speeches that seemed to go on for at least an hour too long.”

“He talked about how much he respected President Xi Jinping of China; how much he liked playing golf with his buddy ‘Shinzo,’ Prime Minister Abe of Japan; how well he got along with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un,” Hogan wrote in the editorial, published Thursday. “Then, the jarring part: Trump said he really didn’t like dealing with President Moon from South Korea. The South Koreans were ‘terrible people,’ he said, and he didn’t know why the United States had been protecting them all these years. ‘They don’t pay us,’ Trump complained.”

Hogan wrote that his wife, Yumi Hogan, was “sitting there as the president hurled insults at her birthplace,” but managed to endure the speech “politely and silently.”

Yumi Hogan, born in Naju, South Korea, immigrated to the United States in her 20s, married Larry Hogan in 2004 and is the first Korean American first lady of a U.S. state.
