WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is apparently not a fan of Oscar winner “Parasite," his biggest complaint being that the movie was made in South Korea.

Trump started talking about the Academy Awards during a campaign rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Thursday night. “Parasite” was named best picture, the first non-English-language film to get the top honor.

“What the hell was that all about?" Trump said. “We've got enough problems with South Korea with trade. On top of that, they give them best movie of the year. Was it good? I don't know."

Neon, the U.S. distributor for the subtitled film, shot back on Twitter: “Understandable. He can't read."

Meanwhile, Trump praised decades-old Hollywood movies, one of which was set during the time of slavery in the U.S. The audience booed when Trump mentioned the Academy Awards and then cheered when he said: “Can we get like 'Gone with the Wind' back please? ‘Sunset Boulevard,' so many great movies."

Trump would not let it go on Friday when he addressed another crowd of supporters at a rally in Las Vegas.
