Source: Fox News

“South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol went viral for his hot mic reaction to President Biden’s remarks at the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday. Yoon, who took office in May, reacted to Biden’s pledge to increase the U.S. contribution to the U.N. Global Fund, which would require congressional approval. ‘How could Biden not lose damn face if these f—ers do not pass it in Congress?’ Yoon asked his aides on a hot mic Wednesday, according to the South China Morning Post. Biden has repeated the talking point that America has been respected again on the world stage since his election in 2020. Yoon’s comments raised concern in his home country; strong U.S.-Korean relations are pivotal for mutual defense in the East Asian region.” (09/22/22)
