Ex-President Trump given ninth-degree black belt in taekwondo

Former President Trump received an honorary ninth dan belt certificate in taekwondo from the sport's main governing body in Florida over the weekend.

Issued by Kukkiwon president Lee Dong-sup, Trump received the honorary belt at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla. Kukkiwon posted the exchange to its Facebook page, where Trump can be seen wearing a traditional taekwondo uniform, outfitted with a black dan belt.

In taekwondo, the ninth dan belt is the highest level a person can achieve.

"It is my honor to receive the honorary dan certificate and I think Taekwondo is a magnificent martial art for self-defense. I wish to see Kukkiwon taekwondo team's demonstration," said Trump according to Kukkiwon's Facebook page.





In the exchange between Trump and Dong-sup at the former president's Florida resort, a framed photo can be seen of Trump shaking hands with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

According to The New York Post, Trump isn't the first world leader to receive an honorary ninth dan belt. Russian president Vladimir Putin also received the same honor when he visited South Korea in 2013.

7. Putin is evil

But he is a badass.

He holds an honestly earned Judo black belt..

Kind of a requirement for being a KGB officer.

Putin would splatter the doughboy.

On the other hand, some believe Putin to be a fraud...

3. Someone should make up some fake self defense method, call it something like

"Bonad Ripfab", play it up in the media for a few months, and then present tfg with their highest honor "The Red Suspenders of Doom - Master Level".

I'd bet money he would fall for it.

I lived in Erie Pa. through the 1990's, met Billy Blanks (Tae Bo inventor, TKD Master, and human fireplug more than once.

26. big wave of fluff news about tfg yesterday

...why give him oxygen?

He benefited from this kind of publicity before he improbably became president. He should be relegated to nothing but stories about his pending indictments or convictions.

Just not funny.
