Trump scoffs at S Korea’s ‘Parasite’ Oscar win

US President Donald Trump on Thursday scorned the best picture Oscar for the South Korean film "Parasite," asking how a foreign movie could get the honor. "How bad was the Academy Awards this year?" Trump asked the crowd at a packed re-election campaign rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado. "We got enough problems with South Korea, with trade. On top of it, they give them the best movie of the year?" Trump asked in disbelief. "Parasite," a dark comedy exploring class divides, made history by becoming the first non-English-language film to win Hollywood's biggest prize. Trump, whose presidency has been built on a nationalist "America first" platform, said it was time to bring back classics from Hollywood's golden age. "Let's get 'Gone With the Wind.' Can we get 'Gone With the Wind' back please? 'Sunset Boulevard?'" he said.
