SEOUL: Already battling record-low approval ratings, South Korea‘s President Yoon Suk Yeol landed in trouble again after his disparaging remarks about a key ally, the United States, were caught on a hot mic.
Yoon, a political novice who took office in May, is in New York City 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 afterward in footage that went viral in South Korea.
