Already battling record-low approval ratings, South Korea’s President Yoon Suk-yeol has landed in trouble again after his disparaging remarks about key ally the United States were caught on a hot mic.
Yoon, a political novice who took office in May, is in New York for the United Nations General Assembly and chatted on Wednesday with Joe Biden during a photo op at the Global Fund where the US President had just pledged $6 billion.
“How could Biden not lose damn face if these fuckers do not pass it in Congress?” Yoon was caught saying to his aides afterwards in footage that went viral in South Korea.
A YouTube video of Yoon’s comments racked up over two million views just hours after it was posted, and [“fuckers” became the number one trending topic on Twitter in South Korea on Thursday.]
“The president’s words and actions are the national dignities of the country,” one YouTube commenter wrote.
Yoon’s crude comments appear to refer to Biden’s drive to increase US funding to the Global Fund, which would require congressional approval.
The United States is South Korea’s key security ally, with Washington stationing about 27,000 troops in the country to help counter nuclear-armed North Korea.
