South Korea’s large press contingent reportedly annoyed President Donald Trump during his recent meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the White House.
Apparently, some members of the Korean media caused a minor commotion inside the Oval Office on Friday that got the attention of the POTUS.
According to the New York Post, the Korean journalists were even told by the Secret Service to stop running as they were entering the room.
With the addition of the Korean press, the White House press pool got a little more crowded than usual.
As some of them tried to find a spot to set up their camera and equipment, they bumped into a couch, a table was damaged and a lamp got knocked over. Fortunately, White House aide Keith Schiller caught it before it fell.
“You are getting worse,” Trump, visibly irritated, was quoted as saying to the room of reporters. “They knocked a table down.”
However, he immediately turned to President Moon and said, “It’s actually a very friendly press, don’t let them get you, although we just lost a table.”
After their meeting, Trump announced that the United States can no longer be patient with North Korea.
“The era of strategic patience with the North Korean regime has failed,” said Trump. “Many years and it’s failed, and frankly, that patience is over.”
