In the midst of Trump’s five-nation tour of Asia, the President was met with an unexpected slew of demonstrators protesting his presence in Seoul, the capital of South Korea.
South Koreans took to the streets en masse to speak out against Trump’s increasingly bellicose rhetoric. Many on the Korean Peninsula – and in the international community – believe that Trump’s combative language with regard to the easily-provoked North Korean regime will launch the United States and our allies into a wholly unnecessary nuclear war with Pyongyang.
Meanwhile, while addressing South Korea’s National Assembly, Trump lobbed a direct threat to North Korea, warning, “Do not underestimate us. And do not try us.”

Protests against the American President come on the heels of a decidedly unfavorable Election Day for Republicans in the United States. Democrats scored big, flipping the governor’s mansion in New Jersey and retaining it in a close race in Virginia. Democrats are also poised to take control of the Virginia House of Delegates pending the outcome of several races. They even took control of Washington’s State Senate, creating “trifectas” of Democratic governors and state legislatures in every state on the West Coast.
The election was largely viewed as a referendum on an increasingly unpopular Trump administration.
Whether at home or abroad, Trump’s disgusting rhetoric and self-serving agenda are catching up with him in a very unpleasant way.
