“And the winner is… a movie from South Korea! What the hell was that all about?

“We”ve got enough problems with South Korea, with trade. On top of it, they give them the best movie of the year! Was it good? I don”t know. Let”s get ”Gone with the Wind” back please. ”Sunset Boulevard”. So many great movies,” he added.

Trump linked the political and economic situation of both countries with the prize given to the film that has also triumphed at festivals such as Cannes, reports Efe news.

“I thought it was the best foreign film, right?” he asked in reference to the best international feature film category, which “Parasite” also won.

“Parasite” made history by being the first foreign language movie to win the Oscar for best film.

The response of the film”s US distributor, Neon, came a few minutes later on Twitter.

“Understandable, he can”t read,” it said, accompanying a clip of the President”s rant.

Trump also criticized the Oscars” for awarding Pitt for best supporting actor.

“And then you have Brad Pitt, I was never a big fan of his,” he said.

“He got up, said a small wise guy statement. Little wise guy. He”s a little wise guy,” said the President about a speech in which the actor said the time he had been given to talk was longer than former White House national security adviser John Bolton was given when he offered to testify at Trump”s impeachment trial.

The president also lashed out at teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg, TIME magazine”s 2019 person of the year.

“This year I got beaten out by Greta – you know Greta?” he asked.

“Last year I got beaten out – I”ve won it, but when the world revolves around all of us, we should be chosen… I mean, we”ve won it. But we should win it every single year.”
